Custom Travel



Al Campo International offers unique custom-tailored trips to schools and community groups interested in expanding their international service-learning experience. With more than 10 years of experience working in economic development in Central America and Asia and through our ties to international development organizations like UNFAO, UNICEF and Save the Children, your group’s contribution will be more than just a service project.

It will reflect the work of a well-coordinated sustainable development effort designed to meet the most immediate needs of local communities. Providing sustainable solutions to issues surrounding nutrition, sanitation and micro-enterprise. your service experience will be more than a memory for you and the local people you help. It will provide a stepping stone to a healthier and more prosperous life.

Our trips are designed for school groups, community groups and families (a minimum of 10 participants is recommended to receive the best pricing). We customize each trip based on schedule and budget. We accommodate people of all ages and physical limitations. And while sustainable development is the focus of most of our trips each one includes language immersion and some sort of eco-adventures (e.g. SCUBA diving, surfing, hiking, and canyoneering). Local family homestays are recommended but remain optional. For the more adventure-oriented traveler we also offer a small number of trips which incorporate service into things like SCUBA diving and surfing (see below). Whether you are looking to make a life-changing contribution to a Nicaraguan family, help slow the degradation of one of the world’s largest reef systems in Honduras or explore the heritage and ecological wonders of the Philippines we have a trip for you. Please explore the opportunities listed below and contact us to incorporate those that interest you most into your next international trip.

Nicaragua SCUBA & Conservation

The tiny island of Little Corn off the caribbean coast of Nicaragua offers some of the most undiscovered and pristine diving in the Caribbean. Because the eastern portion of Nicaragua is much less populated than the rest of the country, tourism has not overrun this area and only those seeking something truly off-the-beaten path arrive here.
