Wisconsin/Nicaragua Partners of the Americas, Inc. is offering opportunities for integrated rural tourism focusing on the unique story of a rural community, where the ordinary for the citizen becomes the extraordinary for the visitor. Building on a longstanding history, W/NP offers travel tours that visit major tourist attractions while sharing the unique tales of rural communities and the ongoing projects of the partnership.
Depending on the theme of your travel, you will meet village leaders, visit homes and workshops specific to the topics you are interested in, talk with farmers, nature guides, and women taking classes at the Learning Centers, visit orphanages, and meet rural and urban artists. Travel with W/NP will take place off of the beaten path in beautiful, rural and urban areas. We offer a well-developed variety of experiences, an English-speaking tour guide, an air-conditioned bus, and visits to tourism "hot spots."
