Yay! Life is certainly what you make it and the combination of you two and La Mariposa seems to work very well! Missed you greatly after you had gone but look forward to the next visit! PS the freed iguana are doing well.
So ... La Mariposa Spanish School now has a second location in Granada Nicaragua.
There is no hotel attached to the school, but they are offering homestays.

This is Paulette, the director of La Mariposa. It is important to be clear what we are talking about! Chagas does not exist here nor has there been a case of malaria for 15 years. La Concha, population over 50,000 has had 6 confirmed cases of Zika, they are all now fully recovered. Rabies has not been seen here in many years (I have lived here 12 years and never heard of a case) and there is a government program to vaccinate all dogs free of charge. Dengue is more of an issue, there are occasional cases here so important to protect from mosquitoes. I hope some of the many families who have stayed here and loved it reply to you as well!!
