TODAY NICARAGUA – Companies in the tourismt sector expect to generate US$660 million in revenue this year, mainly driven by an increase in visitor spending.

In addition to an increase in the number of visitors to the country, the tourism industry also expect a rise in the average daily spending tourists, which at the close of the third quarter saw an increase of 8.5% compared to the previous quarter.

The former president of the National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua (Canatur), Silvia de Levy, told Elnuevodiario.com.ni “…’We are seeing that average spending is growing a little bit and that tourists are extending their stay in the country. We are diversifying, all tourism entrepreneurs are being asked to diversify their products, to see what other activities can be done. For example, in Managua there are more things to do because of all of the investments that have been made’.”
