More Investment Needed For Tourism Infrastructure

January 26, 2007

Dear Nica Times:

As a regular reader and subscriber to The Tico Times and The Nica Times and now a resident, if only briefly, of Granada, I must add my voice to those who call for more investment in infrastructure (particularly roads) and more publicity abroad of the delights of Nicaragua.

Of course this must be tempered with an understanding that the more successful the publicity the more Nicaragua will change and become like Costa Rica.

However, I believe this price is worth paying as it can only be for the good of the people in terms of more employment and foreign investment, if coupled with wise government direction. Keep up the good work.
