Help Out At A Nicaraguan School

It's great to visit new cities and see new sights, but sometimes the best memories are made of simpler stuff.

Escuela Adelante provides bilingual education to preschoolers and elementary students, just a few blocks from the cruise port in San Juan del Sur.

The school is always happy to have volunteers, even if only for an hour or two. If you would like to donate some time, get in touch and we can discuss which activities you could participate in. Examples include: reading with the children, and helping them practice English through play or conversation. If you have a special game or lesson you would like to share, by all means, tell us your idea!

Caution: Don’t be surprised if a Nicaraguan preschooler steals your heart.


  • Visit a local school
  • Interact with local children
  • Learn about life in Nicaragua
  • Unique experience


Things to consider:

1. Visits have to be co-ordinated with the school schedule, so it is best to book as far in advance as possible
2. A short telephone interview will be conducted with all volunteers prior to arrival to ensure suitability.
