Central America, surrounded by both the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean. An area that, despite growing tourism, remains rich and ‘unexplored’. Here you’ll find friendly people, impressive rain forests, beautiful fauna and the beaches are what dreams are made of. Everything in Central America is slow-paced, there’s a relaxed vibe and the people living in the sleepy but beautiful little towns are very open and willing to help you out, also when you’re struggling with your Spanish. Oh, and let’s not forget, Central-Amerika is very affordable. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere and Spanish is the official language. As almost no Nicaraguan speaks English, it is an excellent country to volunteer and learn Spanish. The Nicaraguans are very open to foreigners and enjoy helping you out with Spanish; many will proudly show and tell you about their country. The people are really nice, tremendously hospitable, and patient.
As ‘The Switzerland of Central America’ Costa Rica is, and has been for decades, a unique destination; there is no country in the world where you will find more biodiversity per square meter. Wherever you travel, the ‘pura vida’ feeling is dominant: this is an enthusiastic expression which means ‘pure life’. It is also used as a greeting, or to express anything positive!
If you are one of those persons that think they can change the world with a few weeks volunteering, then you're too naive for On-Stage. The volunteering will most certainly make an important change in your life. On-Stage offers you possibilities to volunteer in projects that work on human-aid or nature preservation. Do you want to attempt to learn and make this world a tiny bit better? Then you are more than welcome at On-Stage.
On-stage Nicaragua organises your volunteering, housing in Nicaragua or Costa Rica, Spanish classes in Nicaragua or Costa Rica, airport service and is there for you in case of an emergency. The duration of volunteering can vary from 2 weeks to a year. Most volunteer possibilities are in and around the beautiful colonial town Granada. Aside from being a charming home base, it is also a great hub for exploring other parts of Nicaragua in your weekends. On-stage Latin America offers different possibilities in terms of volunteering. You can choose from one of the social projects, but also for nature projects. For more specific information on volunteering and the countries, take a look at the pages of Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
Prices for volunteering we sent on request, but general information on prices you find at the chapter 'Costs& Pricing'.
