Managua, Nicaragua; January 02, 2018

The renowned travel and lifestyle magazine, Condé Nast Traveller, highlighted in a recent publication that Nicaragua is a “must-visit” destination in 2018. The note places Nicaragua among recognized countries with a long tourist tradition such as Brazil, Mexico, Australia and Thailand. Nicaragua is the only Central American country mentioned in the publication.

According to the note, Nicaragua is “quite possibly the Central American country that has it all: tropical rainforests and untouched beaches, fringed with palms, distant cloud-capped volcanoes, and recently some extraordinarily special eco-lodges.” The note also emphasizes that “January has the blessing of being the month with the best temperatures” on Nicaragua's Pacific Coast.

According to data issued by the Nicaragua Tourism Institute (INTUR, for its Spanish acronym), in the first four months of 2017 the country recorded a strong rebound in the arrival of tourists. INTUR says that the entry of foreign visitors grew by 28.4 percent. Specifically, between January and April, 610,118 tourists entered the country, while in the same period of 2016 there were 475,154 visitors.

It seems Nicaragua is not only attracting the attention of investors and trade partners, but also tourists. Tourism will take part in the country’s economic growth for 2018, as the country has been internationally featured as an exceptional destination for this year. Nicaragua has been acknowledged for its beautiful beaches, diverse nature, low living costs, and adventure opportunities by renowned international media including CNN Travel, Lonely Planet, Business Insider, The Huffington Post, International Living, Travel and Leisure and MONDO.
