Safety of student groups

I would like to bring a group of high school students to Granada for 2 weeks to participate in a community service type project with a local school. I spent 1 month in Granada in 2008 and loved it. Needless to say parents are concerned about safety. I am a seasoned traveler and have lead many student tours. We have made arrangements to rent a group of Condo's at Casa Xalteva. Any suggestions or comments to help answer the concerns of the parents?

Mil Gracias

Maybe the local school would be willing to write a letter to the parents.

Nicaragua has the second lowest crime rate in the Americas! I live in Granada and I think it may be one of the safest places I have ever lived (caveat- most of my previous living places were in NYC which isn't exactly the safety capital of the world).

I have arranged student groups without any problem. One important aspect is the maturity of the students - if you really want to you can get into trouble.

the best way to tell those parents to be calm is to check web pages like interpol, unicef, etc and you´ll find info that mention that nicaragua it is one of the most safe countries in america as well as the safest airport in centralamerica, so don´t worry enjoy the trip, travel in groups and thanks to come here and help the country the needed people will be thankfull.
