Volunteering in Nicaragua is a wonderful way to discover pristine beaches, dense rainforests and volcanic landscapes. The so-called 'land of lakes and volcanoes' (tierra de lagos y volcanes) offers amazing sites to visit, far from the mass tourism of other countries in Central America. To volunteer with animals in Nicaragua you must find trustworthy nature reserves, rescue centers or rehab organizations for wildlife. Always look for reviews from other travelers and fact-check the information provided by each organization.
Yes! A volunteer in Nicaragua will have plenty of work to do and places to go. The country is home to many NGOs and other organizations that deal with subjects such as women empowerment, english teaching, childcare, permaculture, organic agriculture, animal rescue and rehab, nature conservation, among others. A trip to discover the wonderful nature of Central America while also helping people is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
