Dear colleagues and friends,
Herewith we would like to inform you about the latest developments in Nicaragua.
Peaceful civic protests are taking place regularly, in different parts of the country. Different International Organizations, like the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations (UN), are conducting investigations into the events that have occurred since April. The US Embassy in Managua announced that its employees and their families are now returning to Nicaragua. On October 3rd, the first cruise ship of this season (Island Princess) docked in San Juan del Sur, passengers enjoyed shore excursions to Granada, Masaya and other tourist destinations.
Currently all destinations are fully accessible, including tourist destinations like: Granada, León, Ometepe Island, San Juan del Sur, Emerald Coast, Corn Islands, and the San Juan River area. The last roadblocks were removed a little over two months ago. Transfers and day tours are up-and-running, and domestic flights to Corn Island, Ometepe Island, and Rio San Juan run at their usual frequency. Tourism is picking up slowly, most hotels and restaurants have reopened, or plan to do so in November, when peak season starts. The traffic police and tourist police are back on the streets, and the government launched a campaign to attract foreign visitors, announcing participation at several international travel trade shows.
