Taiwanese travel agencies and media will also participate the tour with the aim to plan tour packages that best suit Taiwanese tourists in the future.
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America. Its tropical climate, cultural diversity and breathtaking natural attractions made Nicaragua an important start for experiencing Central America. For instance, the Corn Islands, known for its white beaches, crystal clear blue water and its simple island life, are located at Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast. It is the premium destination for international tourists to experience Caribbean life.
On the other hand, Masaya Volcano National park, the biggest national park in Central America, is located 22.5 km away from the capital city Managua. It is the few volcanoes in the world where tourists can get in direct contact with its most active crater and appreciate lava lake from the crater boarder. The volcano attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year, making it the most popular national park in Central America. Besides, Cerro Negro is the spot for those who love extreme sports as it is the only place in the world where people can go sandboarding on the volcano.
The Minister of Tourism of Nicaragua Hon. Anasha Campbell Lewis recalled “Nicaragua is a country with exceptional natural wealth and cultural heritage; It has the best roads in Central America that allows you to move quickly from a sun and beach destination to a colonial city, to climb a volcano, to know the multiculturalism of our Caribbean, to enjoy the diversity of its gastronomy, tranquility, multi-ethnicity, hospitality and human warmth of its people, which make it unique and original destination.”
Taiwanese travel agencies and tour operators who are invited to participate the event feel optimistic about Nicaragua’s development in tourism. They intend to take full advantage of the Nicaraguan Tourism International Fair to get in direct contact with local suppliers and hope to design diverse tour packages for Taiwanese tourists in the near future.
