The Peace Project hostel the only hostel in Laguna de Apoyo that is also a community project. The hostel hosts project activities from English and computation classes to community meetings. We give free room and board to the two Program Directors and discounted lodging for project volunteers.
In the afternoons, you'll often find the local kids in the back room reading and learning English. In the evenings, some of their parents come by work to learn English and computation as well. Travelers will sometimes play soccer on the cancha with the kids after English class, or will leave clothes donations to be distributed to the neediest families.
Supporting the hostel is supporting the Laguna de Apoyo community! Learn more about the project (and info on volunteering) at thepeaceprojectnicaragua.org
