Tourism projects spring up throughout Central America

Thursday, October 13, 2011

From tiny ecoresorts to new mega-resorts and cruise-ship ports, the six Spanish-speaking nations of Central America are investing heavily to bring tourists and their dollars to the region.

Earlier this year, El Salvador’s Grupo Agrisal opened a Holiday Inn in Escazú, a western suburb of the Costa Rican capital of San José.

Guatemala, which is plagued by drug-related violence, nevertheless hopes to see a resurgence of tourism, particularly medical tourism.

In Nicaragua, an airport is being built at Ometepe island, and the biggest focus of regional tourism is Panama.
