Cost:
All international and national travel costs to get to the site are your responsibility. Volunteers buy and prepare all their own food and we recommend you budget for at least US$40 per week or more if you like luxuries. On-site accommodation and utilities are provided at a cost reflective of length of time volunteering with us: 1-2 months - US$300/month; 3-5 months - US$150/month; more than 6 months - free. We require a US$200 security deposit to cover any damage you may cause to your volunteer living accommodations. You will receive this back at the end of your stay with us; minus the cost of any damage you may have caused exceeding normal wear and tear. Comprehensive insurance cover for the entire stay is a must, and it should be arranged and paid for by the applicant. If staying for more than 90 days, doing a visa renewal trip is also the applicant's own responsibility. The most cost-effective option is going to Nicaragua via bus for a long weekend.

We are unable to accommodate couples at our site.
