To realize Vapues Tours' vision, several procedures are implemented that apply to all staff members, and where possible, to the company's providers and clients. Vapues Tours implements and promotes sustainable tourism, informing and involving the aforementioned participants in best practices in order to perpetuate the Nicaraguan culture, history and nature, to contribute to local economies, and to preserve the environment.

Pack for a Purpose

We proudly support Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows clients to make a lasting impact in the local community. Vapues Travel supports Casa Xalteva, a language and cultural center in Granada, a colorful colonial town often included in our tailored Nicaragua itineraries. They support dozens of children through a prevention program, which aims to extract children from situations of risk and vulnerability. The primary goal of the program is to enable these children to break away from cycles of poverty and violence and to generate a positive influence in their lives. Casa Xalteva provides a meal in a happy and safe environment, scholarships, homework support, learning materials, vocational training skills and educational field trips.

By saving just a few kilos of space in their suitcase for supplies to bring to Casa Xalteva, our clients can make a priceless impact in the lives of local children and families. Please click here to see what supplies are needed for this project.
