IL Radio Episode 26: One Expat Gives Back to the Community in Granada, Nicaragua

Donna Tabor lived a rich, full life right into her 50s. Then she decided to follow her heart… and she joined the Peace Corps. That was 16 years ago, and her first station was Granada, Nicaragua. She’s been there ever since.

If you think that she might have relaxed a bit after her Peace Corps days, you’d be sorely mistaken… Donna has so many irons in the fire that it’s hard to count them all… and that’s good news for other expats in the lovely colonial town of Granada, because Donna always has some way for them to keep busy AND give back to the community she’s made her home.

We catch up with Donna and get her expert advice on living, working, and getting the most out of living abroad in this edition of Finding Your Overseas Paradise.




Granada is just one of the many locations in Nicaragua that expats have been exploring, investing, and living in for retirement, vacations, or second homes.

The colonial charms of Granada compete with the beautiful surf beaches of San Juan del Sur, the northern colonial ambiance of Leon, the bustling city life of Managua, and the largely undeveloped Atlantic beaches along Nicaragua’s eastern coast.

Nicaragua is one of the most affordable retirement and second home destinations in Latin America, and with such a wealth of different locations to choose from, Nicaragua is fast rising on the radar for retirees and home buyers looking for affordable and comfortable lives abroad.
