Granada sits on Lake Nicaragua, one of the largest and most scenic lakes in the world. Granada is still off the beaten path for the typical traveler, and as a result, the ancient city’s enthralling local culture continues to shine through.

Granada is also known as La Gran Sultana, in reflection of its Moorish and Andalusian appearance, unlike its sister city of León and historical rival, which displays Castilian trends.

Most of Granada's streets are narrow, as the city evolved centuries before the advent of motorized vehicles. Therefore, today, many streets allow only one-way traffic, offering a challenge to visitors traveling by car.

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America next to Haiti. The average family lives on less than 10 US dollars a day, barely enough to put food on the table and a roof over their head.  16% of the population survives on less than 2 US dollars a day.

With such a prevalence of extreme poverty, one would think that Nicaragua is a dangerous place to visit. But that is not the case in Nicaragua. According to the United Nations and other monitoring organizations, Nicaragua is the safest country for travelers in all of Latin America.

WHAT DO MY FEES PAY FOR?

When you join an A Broader View program your financial contribution supports the hundreds of needy communities where our volunteer programs are based.  Donations are helping to stimulate the local economies with coordinator and hosting jobs, with new constructions at local school and orphanage, with much needed medical supplies to under served hospitals and clinics. 

ABV works tirelessly year round to support our volunteers, and also to serve the local communities where we are based.  As a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization we receive 100% of our funding from our volunteers' program fee donations. Your program fee is used for airport pick up & transfer, departure transfer, placement logistics, orientation, food & accommodations, in-country assistance as well as programmatic administrative support and continuity of our volunteer programs.   If you have questions about our program fees email to [email protected] or call us toll free at 866-423-3258.
