MEMANTA is a destination for people who want to experience a simpler way of life, think outside the box and get reconnected with nature. MEMANTA is a place for wilderness lovers, adventurous folks, aspiring scientists, inspiration-seekers and curious minds.
People who stay with us contribute to on-going conservation efforts while being trained in preservation techniques, field research methods and cultural competence.
Our work area encompasses ecosystem management, resource management, biodiversity and environmental education on a local scale.
During part of the year, we run a sea turtle conservation program – currently, we’ve been protecting over 100 nests in one season!
During the rest of the year, we focus on other environmental projects as well as research efforts and community programs.
MEMANTA is a young-spirited, family-run business that initiated in 2019.
We welcome volunteers, students and long-term travellers all year round to participate in our programs. Apart from daily chores and interesting work projects, there are various recreational activities, workshops and tour options waiting for you!
But WHY CONSERVATION TOURISM?
We want to show the world that conservation can promote development as it enables ecological tourism and creates sustainable revenues. With every volunteer and guest we’re welcoming, we demonstrate the touristic (thus: economic) potential of nature itself – a resoure, that is becoming more and more scarce and therefore turning into a “luxury good”. Just imagine: If we can turn nature into a source for economic welfare, people will be so much more eager to preserve it!
By combining tourism with conservation and sustainable living, we seek to create a safe and enjoyable environment for travellers, local inhabitants, animals and plants.
We haven’t found the magic formula yet, but we wish to become a best-practice example for others in the future. For now, we want to learn, reflect and experiment together with you.
Come and stay with us
This year, we need lots of helping hands for the further development of our sustainability projects and the sea turtle hatchery as we keep growing and expanding!
Our goal is not only to improve the conditions on-site, but also to have a great impact on every visitor’s life. We want to show you the authentic way of life in rural Nicaragua and the reality of environmental protection – no filters, no lies, no show offs. Are you ready?
