It has taken decades for Nicaragua to become a tourist destination; our organization is the result of many life journeys that have started, crossed, developed and still live in contact with the Land of Lakes and Volcanos.
My personal journey into Ecotourism started with that of a man who was born in a farm near Momotombo Volcano, became a medical doctor in Nicaragua and a surgery specialist in New York, fought a Dictatorship from young age and became a leader in a Revolution and in Nicaragua´s incipient democracy.
From whatever job he was doing at the time, as Doctor, Professor, Viceminister, Dean, Mayor, Congressman or Head of the university, he was always the friend who inspired us to care for people and become passionate for nature and outdoor activities.
In 2008, our last Journey together took us to the Mayagna people in a National University mission, deep into the Nicaraguan Rainforest, by plane, road, foot and canoe I had the chance, once more, to witness in action a man of great knowledge and wisdom, generosity and humility, prestige and honesty, good humor and curiosity. He was my father.
From him we inherited a lifetime of experiences into the Nicaraguan outdoors, from sea level to every volcano, rivers and lagoons, not only in geographical trips but in journeys to meet people and make life lasting friendships.
We wish our work to be a tribute and continuation of Dr. Sampson´s Sr (1941-2009) dream; to build a better country for all the Nicaraguans, its nature and ecosystems, a nation we can be proud of and for the international visitor to enjoy or even come to live in.
We aim to participate actively in improving the living conditions of Nicaraguans, promote social change and the protection of the environment as a socially responsible company working in Ecotourism.
