Nicaragua Tourism Is On Airfield Near San Juan

The forthcoming opening of an airstrip near the mouth of the river San Juan awakens hope in the Nicaraguan Government, which aims to attract more tourists to a remote area, but rich in flora and fauna.

However, this step also encourages tourism authorities of the neighboring country to capture the interest of Costa Ricans or foreigners who come here.

No wonder the leaders of the Nicaraguan Institute of Tourism (Intur) invited the heads of Nature Air to value the option of flying to the new terminal in San Juan (North) from our country, said Carlos Sosto, manager of the national airline .

“We are considering the possibility, but talks are premature because the airport lacks some facilities, such as the sale of fuel,” said Sosto.

The interest in attracting international tourists to the new track also became clear Alfredo Lopez, owner of the Hotel Río Indio Lodge, located near the mouth of the river San Juan.

In an email, the employer said the government of the neighboring country’s work will open next week, for which it is inviting Costa Rican press.

Speaking to El Nuevo Diario , Lucy Valenti, adviser to the National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua, said: “With the track becomes a more attractive area for investment, the number of tourists in the area will depend on the ability of accommodation there. The largest hotel is between 20 and 25 rooms. ” Precisely, this is Rio Indio Lodge. The new landing site has a track length of 1,200 meters.
