“Fourteen years ago Nicaragua was unthinkable as a travel destination. Now it’s the safest place in Central America, at the brink of a tourist revolution…”.
-MSNBC (Nicaragua: Contra to what you think. This Central American country is on the brink of a 'tourist revolution‘.). August 2005
“In 2004, there was a 16 percent increase in travel to Nicaragua, with the largest share of visitors coming from the United States. It’s the one to watch in 2006 as the media attempt to find the ‘next Costa Rica’”. “There's a cool kid factor to visiting this place -- it's safe, the people are very friendly, there's a lot to do, yet it still has this perception of being dangerous. It's going to pop, no doubt.”
“Where to Go Next: Hot Spots for 2006”.- Lonely Planet, January 2006
“…Nicaragua is beginning to emerge as a popular eco-tourist destination…”
-The New York Times: Travel, January 2005
