Nicaragua - After all the investment in infrastructure etc., why is tourism going backwards in $, forward in numbers and can Nicaragua continue to be the Walmart of the region. As a sector, we are making the same money we were 8 years ago ($80 per day then on 650,00 people compared to $40 per day now for 1.2 million people).
That's a negative growth rate when you consider the investment costs, increases in labor, electricity, food costs and taxes, to name but a few line entries. Add in the "Party has moved" fickleness of the customer and its depressing.
