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.

General Clothing

Used clothing from the United States is readily available all over Nicaragua, so some Volunteers recommend bringing less clothing and more personal items that may be expensive or hard to find in Nicaragua. Because clothes must be washed on concrete washboards, they tend to stretch and wear out quickly, so you may want to choose fabrics that hold their shape.

I ROCK! :)

Shoes

BLAH BLAH B LAHHHH !!!!!

Kitchen

Volunteers use the “settling-in” allowance provided by the Peace Corps to buy the essential items needed to set up a household, such as a bed, a gas stove, and a refrigerator. If you do not enjoy cooking, you should be able to arrange to eat at a neighbor’s house or at a small, family-style restaurant. For those who like to cook, the following are some items that are nice to have and may be difficult to find in Nicaragua.


The following items are suggestions for practical and comfort items. Many are available in-country. Use this list only as a guide; ultimately you should decide what you need, based on your personal style and preferences.
