This list has been complied by Volunteers serving in Nicaragua and is based on their experience. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list, bearing in mind that experience is individual. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you personally and professionally. As you decide what to bring, keep in mind that you have an 80-pound weight limit on baggage. And remember, you can get almost everything you need in Nicaragua.
- One or two pairs of sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots (rubber soles last longer in rugged conditions)
- One or two pairs of shoes for professional wear (closedtoe shoes for men, dressy shoes or sandals for women)
- One pair of tennis or running shoes for sports
- One pair of sandals for casual wear, not appropriate for work attire (e.g., Tevas or Birkenstocks)
- Flip-flops or other shoes for the shower (also available locally) Personal Hygiene and Toiletry Items
- A three- to six-month of tampons or sanitary napkins (the local selection is limited and more expensive than in the United States)
- Three-month supply of toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. for use during training
- Any special items you cannot live without, such as skin-care or hair-care products
- Medicated talc powder (for men)
