Family Trips

¡Familias Welcome!

Dozens of families visit us every year to step out of their comfort zones and come alive juntos. We believe that this cross-cultural experience will spark transformational growth for your family and the Nicaraguan families you will serve.

Families with children (we recommend that children be at least 5 years old!) thrive on mission trips. We have family rooms available for families with young children to stay together at our Amigos Complex. You might want to bring some fun activities for your little ones like coloring books and crayons, a soccer ball or frisbee, or even bilingual books so the whole family can practice their Spanish.

Get ready for the most transformational trip you’ll ever take as a family!

Where You Will Stay

Our Home, the Amigos Complex

We want your stay in Chinandega to be as comfortable as possible while allowing you to experience what life in Nicaragua is like. 

At the Amigos Complex, morning and evening meals are prepared by Patricia and her team and enjoyed together in the comedor. We come together in the Rancho for evening devotionals, and early risers can soak in breathtaking sunrises over the volcanoes on the veranda. 

At the Amigos Complex you will find:

2 Dormitories

Our two dorm-style rooms can host up to 100 missionaries.

Private Rooms

There are 15 private rooms and bathrooms for families with small children.


We have plenty of showers where you can refresh after a long day at work and fans to keep you cool at night.

Clean Water

You can drink from any spigot on the property thanks to our water purification system.
