vecinosAlternatives: Getting Close to the Country and the People Who Live There

To really get close to the people and places you visit, you have to get involved. Take a language or cooking course, volunteer with children or community development, study Tibetan Buddhism or participate in an archaeological dig, teach English or work on a farm for a few days, weeks, or months. No matter your age or interest, there's an alternative travel opportunity for you at GoNOMAD.

You'll find dozens of stories about alternative ways to travel right here on GoNOMAD.com Travel.
