It’s hard to pick just one thing to do while in Masaya, Nicaragua — but this nighttime lava tour might be one of the coolest things to do during your semester volunteering abroad.
Turns out there are about a million cool things to do in Nicaragua, and most of them include volcanoes ... which makes any activity even cooler — volunteers, you’re going to want to explore this hip island every weekend.
The secret is out – Nicaragua really is the hidden gem of Central America. Bursting full of history, rainbow colored buildings, unreal beaches (and cheap surfing lessons), jungle excursions and islands that rival the rest of the Caribbean, this new ILP country is a spot to see before it gets too touristy.
ILP is excited to expand into a new part of the world and offer you two new countries with service opportunities and, of course — tons of adventure! You can now participate in service trips to Central America.
You’ll probably need to leave your piano at home (sorry) but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring your guitar, ukulele, saxophone, violin, etc. while you live abroad!
We’ve talked to alumni who have done just that to give you a little more info about bringing along an instrument when you travel.
ILP isn’t just for when you’re single — we have countries all over that you can volunteer in with your spouse! We even have one country where the both of you go for the price of just one person. Score.
Shoes make all the difference when you're traveling. You will be on your feet a ton while you explore the new cities you are in and you want to be comfortable! Here are some of the best shoes for traveling that will keep you cool in hot weather, warm in cold weather and comfortable wherever you are!
Uh oh, you just got the bill for dinner while you're traveling through a foreign country and have no idea what to do. Do you tip here? Is it rude if you don’t? Is it rude if you do? Don’t panic! We’ve got the info you need.
Just because Lithuania, Mexico and Thailand are only for the ladies that doesn’t mean the guys miss out on all the fun!
