Ground Transportation From Managua Int. Airport:

There are regular shuttles that go from Managua Airport to San Juan Del Sur.  You are responsible for booking your transportation from the airport to Tree Casa.

One option is: 

Meet fellow trainees at the airport! We will get you all connected online before the training, so that you can compare travel itineraries and try to link up at the airport. 



Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily as part of your accommodation tuition. We will have set meal times and buffet style meals that are included in the rate. The food is excellent and, of course, vegetarian! 

If you would like something additional, there is a restaurant in the hotel that the students can order from at any time of the day and pay as they go. 


The local currency in Nicaragua is the Nicaraguan Cordoba.  Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere. US dollars or cordobas are accepted everywhere in the town as well, so there is no urgency to exchange money at the airport. ATMs are available in town.
