According to the Plan of Good Governance 2016, the authorities expect the tourist industry to generate about 500 million dollars in 2016.

In order to attract attention and diversify the options, the Nicaraguan Tourism Institute plans to open 11 infrastructure programs in departments like Madriz, Matagalpa, Jinotega, Estelí and Nueva Segovia in the north, and Granada, in the West.

It will also encourage the implementation of more than 550 events to promote, highlight and preserve the culture, history, customs, natural heritage, gastronomy, beliefs, idiosyncrasies and art of this Central American nation.

It will also provide support to small tourist businesses in Nueva Segovia, Madriz, Jinotega, Estelí and Matagalpa, in order to increase the quality of their services.
