About Us

La Escuelita Nicaragua is a unique space that brings people together to create, learn and enjoy.

La Escuelita Nicaragua is a project that was started in 2014 for the aim of hosting artists, photographers, poets, filmmakers, dancers, architects and more from all over the world in this extremely special location. This is the only project of it's kind in Nicaragua. Workshops will be held all year round, whilst the A.I.R programme will run during the dry months (November- April).

La Escuelita Nica is located only one hour from the capital and the international airport. Situated just outside of the historic town of Niquinohmo, it is also close to Granada and Masaya. La Escuelita is surprisingly central to most of Nicaragua’s main attractions, whilst still managing to feel like a remote place where to focus on creative expression.

The school itself is surrounded by hundreds of different species of plants and animals, as well as all of the peace and tranquility you may need

At La Escuelita we will offer a range of photography, film, dance and other workshops and events as well as an artists in residency programme for part of the year. Please check our ‘workshops’ and ‘A.I.R’ page for more information!

Nicaragua itself is an extraordinary country filled with wonderful places to relax and inspire. Volcanoes, lakes, old colonial towns, bustling markets, beautiful people and stunning sunsets are just some of the things that are guaranteed.
