Nicaragua, January 2011


In late January, Roadmonkey returns to the land of Rubén Darío, one of Latin America€™s most revered poets, to explore & hike two spectacular volcanoes - one of them still quite active - and then build a kitchen for a school in the northern highlands near Honduras.

Our expeditions are more than mere guided tours. We allow serendipity and spontaneity into the schedule. We bring a small group of thoughtful, like-minded adventurers together. If you want an international experience that you€™ll remember for years to come, keep reading.

Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without ever noticing it, live your way into the answer. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke


expedition route & itinerary

Our adventure begins in the colonial city of Grenada, about 1 hour south of Managua, and takes to a volcanic lake for a swim and lunch en route to the Isla de Ometepe: the island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua from which rise the twin volcanoes, one dormant, one still active. For four days, we€™ll explore the volcanoes and the island they form. Then we€™ll drive north, to Cusmapa, the highest point in Nicaragua, to complete our 3-day kitchen-building project.

Adventurers Who Travel Different, Talk About It:

What you are doing has had a huge affect on all of us, internally. Externally, there is a playground where there was none and a bit more hope than there was just a week ago. There are ties forged by the experience that go both ways, and cross oceans, that will never be undone. It's a beautiful thing.
~ John, architect

Thank you for an incredible trip. I was surprised to return from travel to a new land feeling rejuvenated by and indebted to a group of people I traveled with. We Roadmonkeys dug our toes into foreign soil and I got the feeling that, in a little over a week, we were let in on some of the secrets Peru keeps from travelers of convenience.
~ McKenna, hedge fund administrator

I was hoping for a trip through which I would learn about and participate in another culture and be challenged mentally, emotionally and physically in a relatively safe format. The Roadmonkey trip fulfilled and, then, wildly exceeded all my expectations.
~ Chelsea, biochemist
