*At this time we are unable to send teams to Nicaragua due to elevated travel warnings. In the interim, we will be sending teams to Costa Rica to serve our Nicaraguan friends who are currently displaced there.

Cost:

The total base cost will be approximately $1,750 + cost of airfare. The base cost will cover lodging, transportation, meals and related clinical expenses. OneWorld Health is responsible for all flight bookings and team flight itineraries. Volunteers will be responsible for cost of vaccinations and the $10 visa fee into Nicaragua. We recommend that you bring $50-$100 for additional travel/souvenir shopping expenses.

Lodging:

The Nicaraguan team will spend their first night at Hotel Hex in Managua before traveling to the assigned service region (Chinandega, S├ębaco, Tola or Jinotega) and spending the week at a OneWorld Health partnered hotel.

Fun Day:

On the final day, the volunteers will stay at the beach at a OneWorld Health partnered resort for a day of fun in the sun on the Nicaraguan coastline.
