Surf tourism in Central America is attracting tourists

Published on : Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Surf tourismThe beaches of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, are lined with dozens of surfers. Many of them have come from thousands of miles away to get their own shot at the Central American town’s mythic waves. Once the sun goes down, they alternate between beachside bars and bonfires, eat local food and chat with locals.

 
For catering to the growing number of surf tourists, Maderas Village is just steps from the shores of Playa Maderas, a small town close to San Juan del Sur. This boutique hotel charges upwards of $150 a night to stay in a country that was described by the World Bank as among the poorest and least developed in Latin America.

 
In San Juan, there’s a craft brewery . The brewery’s website says that it exists to please “thirsty travelers” with a goal “to create a craft beer culture in San Juan del Sur. Nicaragua saw $840 million of foreign direct investment in 2014, partially due to the incentives that the country rolled out to attract foreign business.

 
Besides tourists, American Baby Boomers are retiring to Latin America in large numbers. They’re heading to countries south of the border like Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Colombia.
