El Salvador plans to boost tourism
El Salvador is planning a major boost to its tourism attractions in the La Libertad and Usulutan coastal regions, with help from the Inter-American Development Bank.
The country’s Ministry of Tourism is slated to receive a $25 million loan from the bank to finance new attractions in the area, part of a new push to develop the industry in El Salvador.
The Central American country received about 1.25 million tourist arrivals in 2012, with the number of hotels and restaurants in the country increasing by 30 percent over the past seven years.
