You will get caught up with Nicaraguan dance and music and its vibrant culture. You will be exposed to the realities of rural and urban life in a developing country and you will take part in a ‘day in the life of’ such as a carpenter, teacher, community worker, mother, rural worker. You will be confronted with the realities of coffee production and the environmental challenges for the town, its forests and rivers. Travellers will be shown the inspirational social programmes supported by SOL.
