    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – For the second time in just over a month, a US newspaper highlights tourism in Nicaragua and positions it as the hot new destination for Central America.

    First there was an article published on December 27 in The Boston Globe which said, “Forget Costa Rica-old news. Experts from the [tourist] industry are calling Nicaragua the best destination in Central America.”

    On February 2, the online journal Huffington Post highlighted 13 reasons to go to Nicaragua, referring to the city of Granada as the “Paris of Central America”.

    “Nicaragua is tropical, with both rich history and exotic Latin culture that awakens your spicy side,” said the article, which highlights the ancient cities, nature, volcanoes, islands and beaches in the neighboring country.

    Despite the hype created from columns such as this, the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism (ICT) launched an advertising campaign in December valued at $3 million, which hopes to attract workaholics from the US and Canada to vacation in the country.

    Between January and November of 2014 more than one million American tourists entered the country: 81 percent of these people were from the States, while 13 percent were Canadians. (Amelia Rueda)
