There was a rise of 8 percent in the number of cruise visitors and a similar percentage of local tourists who visited the facilities administered by Nicaragua’s Tourism Institute (INTUR) last year, elements identified as among the signs of recovery presented by Campbell.

Following the failed coup d’état in the middle of 2018, the main effort of INTUR in 2019 was aimed at increasing tourism as a form of boosting the economy, recalled the minister.

Regarding cruise ship activity, she reported that Nicaragua received a total of 75 such vessels in 2019, 13 more that in the previous year.

Campbell noted that the sector is focused on a forward-looking plan in order to achieve a better international positioning of the country.

She specified that INTUR will work to promote the country as a destination in both Central America and the rest of the world, with the purpose of securing a greater flow of foreign visitors.

The 2nd edition of International Tourism Fair NICATUR 2020 will also mark an important event this year.
