Our programs in Nicaragua give you an extraordinary opportunity to experience the fascinating culture in Central American's largest, democratic republic country. Although Nicaragua has a shadowed past, however today it is considered one of the safest countries in the Americas.
A booming increase in tourism over the last 7 years has positively affected many industries. Tourists come to see the beauty and diversity of the country; fresh water lake, volcanoes, ecotourism, colonial towns and the beaches. However, mainly an agricultural country, Nicaragua still has widespread underemployment and poverty. Nicaragua is among the poorest countries in the Americas, and almost half of the population lives below the poverty line.
