MEDA Field Experiences

Nicaragua

2014 Nicaragua tourSee MEDA's work, experience extraordinary sights

  • Witness the impact MEDA has on communities in rural Nicaragua and meet employees and clients of MiCredito, a MEDA-founded microfinance institution helping entrepreneurs every day.
  • Our 10 day tours include two full days on Ometepe or at San Juan del Sur. Ometepe is an island formed by volcanos touted as the "Oasis of Peace." The island is a mesmerizing place, entrenched in history, and full of stunning sights and activities. San Juan del Sur is a coastal town on the Pacific Ocean popular among surfers and is a vacation spot for many Nicaraguan families and foreign tourists.

Tour highlights

  • Meet people changed by MEDA's business-minded approach to poverty
  • Learn about microfinance and how it enriches lives
  • Visit Managua, the national capital, and Granada, a colonial city dating to 1524
  • In Granada take a horse-drawn carriage ride around the old city, a boat ride to a nearby island to see unique birds or enjoy a zip line ride through a beautiful forest
  • On Ometepe, visit a coffee farm or see hieroglyphs or swim at Ojo de Agua
  • At San Juan del Sur, take a canopy tour on a zipline, go fishing, horseback riding or snorkeling.
