Nicaragua is Number 2 on the "Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2011" list - But there is a catch!
Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2011 - 10 budget-friendly destinations where you can get the most bang for your buck.
The catch is (IMO) that with average daily tourist spending rates steadily going down ($75 down to $48) and LP suggesting that you can live (or survive) here on $15 a day, is Nicaragua going to simply be known as the McDonald's of travel destinations? I am not necessarily saying that is bad (I like Big Macs) just that every new list we are on seems to be based on price (our 'Retirement Haven' friend for instance).
Perhaps it will attract tourists that can and will upgrade to the next bracket up.
