Travel and Living

Students will travel at their own expense from Albuquerque to Managua.  CONEXIONES will  help students  to organize travel and will provide transportation from the airport in Managua to Granada. Round trip fares (Albuquerque to Managua) vary  from  $700 - $1200 . All travel expenses within  Nicaracua (during the field session) are included in the CONEXIONES program fee.

Out of town participants will need to make their own living arrangements in Albuquerque.  The directors will provide information. Out-of-state students should maintain close communication with Professor Thomas the University Honors Program staff. In Granada, participants will be placed with local families accustomed to boarding UNM students. (Only one student will be placed with each family.) The room and board fee for housing in Granada (including laundry) is included in the CONEXIONES program fee.


UNM requires all students who participate in UNM Study Abroad Programs to have medical insurance. Students can use their own continuing insurance if it matches or exceeds the coverage available through UNM.
