Exploring Nicaragua

The Opportunity Experience

Insight Trips are safe, eye-opening, and unforgettable adventures. You will be in expert hands when you travel with our experienced team of field staff and trip leaders. They will give you the insider's view to the places you visit and take you beyond the typical tourist traps for a true local experience.

You'll spend time with experts in the field who know the culture inside and out. Their personal perspective will give you an intimate understanding of the communities you visit and will demonstrate how we work alongside our clients to create opportunity, fight extreme poverty, and ignite significant and lasting transformation. 

Come journey with us. We'll take care of all the details and ensure you have the trip of a lifetime. It will be an adventure unlike any other—one that will change you forever.

An Insight Trip offers a chance to form connections across barriers and borders that you just don't get with other tours.
