Nicaragua Declares Corn Islands National Tourism Heritage Site

Nicaragua’s National Assembly passed a bill to declare the Islas del Maiz, or Corn Islands, a site of national tourism heritage.

Pedro Chamorro, president of the congressional Tourism Commission, said the measure aims to stimulate investment in the Caribbean islands and boost the resort’s hotel capacity by 30 percent over the coming years.

The law calls on various government agencies to work together to spur tourism development of the islands.

According to Nicaragua’s El Nuevo Diario newspaper, a recent travel survey ranked Little Corn Island, the smaller of the two islands, among the world’s 100 best beaches.
