“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.”       (Dagobert D Runes)

Home stays are fast becoming  a popular new way of finding accommodations while travelling.. Travelers are choosing to spend time living with the residents of their destination countries and slowly moving away from the detachment and isolation of  staying in mainstream hotels.

What exactly is a home stay?

A homestay is  an alternative housing option that provides a person  visiting a country like Nicaragua the opportunity to live in a typical Nicaraguan home with a local family.  Whether it be for a few days or a few weeks, by sharing life together with their hosts, a traveler will have a first-hand experience of Nicaraguan culture and a chance for regular, relaxed conversation in Spanish. Those that have had the unique opportunity of a homestay love the safety and comfort of  living in a home away from home while visiting another country . Savvy travelers find that a home stay is much more than just renting a room in a house.
