Tourism recovering in Central America
Tourism in Central America finally seems to be recovering after a global economic downturn wreaked havoc on the industry in late 2008, according to the news agency AFP. The number of visitors to Central America increased by 11 percent in 2010, generating $7 billion and creating 21,000 new jobs.
Last year, 11.8 million tourists visited Central American countries, according to the Central American Tourism Integration System (SICA).
“This shows a clear recuperation in the sector for 2010 from the global economic crisis of 2008 and 2009,” the SICA report noted.
