With the recent violence in Nicaragua, La Mariposa has come up with a unique opportunity. You can learn Spanish by Skype! I have really enjoyed my "immersion" experience. It works even for us who are not able to travel to Nicaragua for other reasons. Although,...More
It is distressingly sad to hear people are cancelling trips to Nicaragua due to concerns about the political situation in the country a week or so ago. Even at its most active, the political protests were very localized and at specific times and places, AND...More
I travel a lot internationally and give thought to where I head – and I have chosen to visit Nicaragua and the La Mariposa three times already this year - in April, May and July. Previous plans will keep me away in August, but I’ll...More
La Mariposa online Spanish courses have been amazing! My Spanish level has increased dramatically with just one hour a week. The entire session is taught in Spanish and at the end of each session, I always think: Is it over already? I'm really looking forward...More

This is Paulette, the director of La Mariposa. It is important to be clear what we are talking about! Chagas does not exist here nor has there been a case of malaria for 15 years. La Concha, population over 50,000 has had 6 confirmed cases of Zika, they are all now fully recovered. Rabies has not been seen here in many years (I have lived here 12 years and never heard of a case) and there is a government program to vaccinate all dogs free of charge. Dengue is more of an issue, there are occasional cases here so important to protect from mosquitoes. I hope some of the many families who have stayed here and loved it reply to you as well!!
