About

Las Peñitas is a coastal village where many of the inhabitants are fisherman. It is also an indigenous village - somewhat comparable to a reservation in the United States - with their own elected council. It is a beautiful part of the country where the people are very friendly and welcoming. However, it is a study of contrasts. Smiling children laugh and play during the day and lay their heads to rest in flimsy, unsafe shacks at night. Fisherman and workers struggle mightily to feed and house thier families, yet offer you food and even the shirts off their back. You’ll love helping these hard-working people who not only help themselves but are just as eager to help others.

Each trip to Nicaragua will be with a group of mission-minded volunteers - typically 8-20 total - who want to experience the world, meet new people, and make a difference. No skills required. Trips last 1-2 weeks and include sightseeing in this Central American nation of mountains and beautiful Pacific coastal beaches.
