All children deserve a quality education, and Nicaraguan children are no exception. This tour is a positive contribution and a great opportunity for social interaction with the Nicaraguan children. Leave the port in your air-conditioned coach as your guide points out the main highlights along the route, including San Cristobal Volcano. He/she will explain the importance of the different crops grown in the area. After a 45-minute drive, you will arrive at the Betania Foundation—a 10-acre property that is host to 400 children. You’ll feel the energy of the elementary school kids and visit the educational center for teens where they learn different skills such as carpentry, arts, sewing and mechanics. See how a child plays the saxophone or a lovely girl carefully plays a violin. You’ll be the guest of a young local guide who will lead you through a great visit at the Chorotega Museum, which holds 1500 indigenous pieces. This is the best collection of pre-Columbian artifacts in the region. Practice your Spanish with the kids or simply enjoy what they have to offer you—a big smile and a lot of hope for their future.
