Responsible Travel that Empowers Communities

Craft for Community invites individuals and groups to experience Nicaragua through authentic projects that interact with our community. We aim to bring cultures together in a meaningful way where learning and cooperation go hand in hand.

Travel should be sustainable, meaningful, and FUN! Craft for Community facilitates meaningful trips for individuals and groups to experience village life in Nicaragua while making a lasting impact for change by interacting with community members in meaningful ways. We handle every planning aspect of each trip and support each group and individual every moment of the way.



Craft for Community offers participants an authentic experience where travel becomes more than just a vacation. Through our unique projects and community partnerships, participants have the opportunity to engage with the community and environment to broaden their understanding of the Nicaraguan culture. All the while, guests stay at our comfortable, newly-built, Western-style beach lodge which assures comfort and relaxation in paradise.


Craft for Community is a project-based volunteer center, language school, arts exchange, and retreat lodge located on the beach in El Transito, Nicaragua. We offer individuals or groups a unique experience while immersing themselves in a project in the local community. We offer guests the opportunity to experience Nicaragua in its most authentic form while interacting with members of our community. We work closely with you to create a fun, safe, meaningful experience that meets your needs and those of our neighbors.

Commitment to Responsible Volunteering

  • All volunteer projects that guests take part in are conceived of, designed, and operated by local community members or organizations. 


  • We never work with marginalized populations such as orphanages, health centers, or the elderly. 


  • All community members under 18 years old, who are part of the volunteer projects have parental or guardian permission to participate.


  • We never accept or place volunteers in work that can be hired out by local community members. Craft for Community itself does not accept volunteers at all for any placement at the lodge or on staff. For work that requires technical skills such as construction, local construction workers are paid for their work to help the volunteer team complete the project.
