Potential Projects: Ceña con las Madres

Ceña con las madres (Dinner with the mothers)

We want to develop a network of women who will prepare and serve typical Nicaraguan dinners for paying guests. We expect that this program would appeal to tourists looking for a taste of authentic Nicaraguan cuisine.

Benefits of the program:

  1. A substantial amount of revenue for participating families.
  2. Tourists looking for an "off-the-beaten path" experience could explore a community outside of Granada proper. The average traveler does not venture into these surrounding communities, which offer fresh perspectives on Nicaraguan culture. A homemade meal in the intimacy of a residential neighborhood would be a rewarding travel experience.
  3. Communities will improve. Tourism would bring more money into them, and greater awareness by the tourism industry would encourage economic development.
