Accommodation in Nicaragua

In León/Nicaragua you can choose between family homestay accommodation and houses shared with other foreign volunteers, language students and interns.

All host families are Leonese families staying at the historical city centre of León at houses built in Spanish colonial style.

Depending on your interest, you can spend more or less time with the families. The rooms are typically located around a patio. You will get your own key and you can basically stay independently from the host family. The families won't urge you to spend time with them, but they are open and welcoming if you enjoying having a conversation and spending time with them.

The minimum furnishment of the rooms include a bed, bedside table, linen, fan and a writing desk with chair. In some of the houses you will have a bathroom on your own, whereas in others the bathroom needs to be shared with the family or other foreign guests, depending on the housing situation. It is not allowed to invite other guests over night at the rooms.

The rent without meals is 100-130 USD per month including a cleaner once per week, and 150-170 USD for a double room per month (with twin beds or double bed). Most of the houses offer use of wireless internet for 15 USD per month.

If you are interested, you can also eat with the family. Breakfast is 2.50 USD, lunch 3.50 USD and dinner 3 USD. Below you can see an exemplary meal plan in Spanish language.

A single room at a shared house is around 140 USD per month.
