Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. – Helen Keller

Nicaragua Coffee Safari

Join us for an action-packed experiential travel adventure in Nicaragua. We'll see this beautiful country close up as we immerse ourselves in local culture, meet some inspiring people, see Young Life ministry in action, and experience all things coffee.

If you love coffee (and even if you don't) you'll gain a deeper appreciation for this rich resource and all that goes into the perfect cup.

Our journey begins in Estelí, known for its premium cigars, then into the mountainous region of Matagalpa where some of the world's finest coffee is grown. Traveling at peak coffee harvest season, we'll walk through the plantation, meet the workers, hear their stories, and of course, see, touch, smell, and taste the coffee grown there.

We'll pick coffee – experience the entire process from field to cup – and learn more about 41 & Change, a sustainable business model making an impact in the lives of employees, their families, the Young Life community, and the world. Immersed in local culture, we'll meet some inspiring Young Life Global Leaders making a difference in their communities.

This coffee is grown right here at La Finca, a Young Life camp where Nicaraguan teenagers are invited to experience one of the best weeks of their lives. We'll meet staff, hear what has drawn them to serve here, and see camp in action – full of kids and full of life!

January is when summer camp is in full swing at La Finca. Thanks to revenue from 41 & Change coffee, kids from all over Nicaragua have the opportunity to attend camp – for many, it's the first time they've experienced anything like it. These are the future leaders of Nicaragua. Some will become teachers, scientists, engineers, doctors, civic leaders, world changers ... all because a coffee harvest is making a way for great things to happen here.

Our adventure concludes with rest and relaxation and time for reflection at Laguna de Apoyo near Granada, a favorite destination of travelers from around the world.

So, why are we inviting YOU?

Because we believe that in the heart of every person there's a desire to be a part of something significant. Adventure stirs in us, but all too often it gets deferred. Why not now? Venture out of the ordinary and say yes to this intersection of adventure and opportunity.
