This despite the government of Daniel Ortega’s attempt to promote tourism to the country while the world battles the coronavirus pandemic.

Nicaragua is the only country in the Americas that keeps its borders completely open.

However, given that most countries in the region have closed their borders, countries such Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama, Colombia, and others and that most airlines in Latin America have grounded their fleets due and the U.S. and Canada airlines canceled flights to the country to the health crisis, Nicaragua’s open borders has been not effective to promote tourism.

The Ortega government, by its actions, has managed the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic as it were not serious, in the belief that Nicaraguans are immune to what’s happening around them and the world.
