ViviendasLeon is introducing a new 8 day program for families who want to introduce their children to service and citizenship while being immersed a new place, people, language and culture. This year's trip includes 5 days in León and 3 days in the Miraflor Cloud Forest Preserve. In León we will explore the culture and history of the city, and work alongside rural families who are part of our rural community development program. In Miraflor you will stay on guest farms and spend the day exploring the forest habitat-its trees, animals, rivers and trails; learn about forest protection and organic farming, and take part in farm activities.
An info night is scheduled for December 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 in San Francisco. RSVP here
Deadline for applications and deposits is February 1, 2017. Download application at the bottom of this page. Final payment is due March 1, 2017.
ViviendasLeon has brought families for more than a decade to Nicaragua for a unique experience in international service, culture and travel. Join our Spring Break service trip and explore a new kind of vacation with your children. Families have the option of home stays or hotel stays in Leon. Both combine educational and challenging activities with evenings to relax and enjoy the variety of places and sights that Leon has to offer.
Trip costs are $1,500 to $1,800 per person for 8 days, depending on stay option, plus airfare. All expenses are inclusive within Nicaragua. Flights to Nicaragua from San Francisco are via United Airlines, American Airlines or Avianca. Note: Because of the new itinerary of this trip that includes the last few days in the mountains near Esteli, travelers must book a return flight after 5PM on the last day of the trip.
