NicaTimes: “Tourism Grows Despite Worldwide Slump”

 Nicole Rogers, in  her article, “Tourism Grows Despite Worldwide Slump” in the NicaTimes, reports, “In the first five months of 2009, tourism in Nicaragua grew by 11 percent, even as most of the world experienced a downward trend.” I always wondered if this would happen—i.e. Europe and Asia becoming too far and expensive for North American travelers, who discover that Nicaragua provides as much adventure in their own backyard. In a related article by Kathleen Wiersch of the San Jose Examiner, entitled “Nicaragua: choice eco-destination in a recession?”, the author discuses Nicaragua’s attractions compared to more traditional spots in Central America after her trip to Granada.
