Popoyo Surf Lodge has been hosting mission groups, youth groups, medical teams, and non-profit organizations for several years now. We have found that some of the most rewarding and memorable weeks for both our clients and our staff have been when we share our time and resources with others who are in need.
We have had the privilege of becoming very involved with the local community through different outreaches and simply building relationships with the locals. We have found that the Nicaraguan people are warm and eager to share their way of life and are very grateful for the time and resources we can share with them.
Opportunities to help in our area include building homes for poor families whose homes are in need of repair or simply unlivable, giving out food , distributing used clothing, toys or shoes, or water filters. Youth groups can enjoy doing plays and skits, going into the schools and distributing school supplies, etc. The possibilities and needs are basically endless and every person involved, from the mission team to the local community benefit.
Popoyo Surf Lodge is used as a base and clients can chose to surf in the morning and do community out reach in the afternoon or vice versa, depending on tides and swell size. It might be that the swell is going to get REALLY good towards the end of the week, so clients can opt to spend more time at the beginning of the trip doing out reach projects. The week is completely customizable depending on the ultimate objectives and goals of the mission group.
