En Managua se concentran la mitad de las capacidades de alojamiento del país
With a current supply of 8,000 rooms, 50% of them in establishments from three to five stars, mainly in Managua, Nicaragua is poised to seek greater investment in hotel infrastructure. Its authorities have planned to raise this number to a housing capacity of 27,000 by 2020, as part of the National Plan for Sustainable Tourism Development of the nation.
According to spokesperson Lucy Valenti, chair of the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur), who told local media, if you want to increase social development and tourism in the Central American country, it is imperative to grow in the hotel sector.

My take: This is good news for those involved in the tourism business in Nicaragua. I do hope that the small and medium businesses are able to get more involved. I also find it interesting that there is still mostly talk about Managua, whereas from my experience, most tourists do not seek to stay in Managua for any longer than necessary!
