Lake Nicaragua, tropical islands, volcanic ash, Managua, limited results

Nicaragua is making efforts to develop tourism, but with limited results. In the 1980s many foreigners who supported the revolution came to see the effects of the Sandinista victory, but such political tourism has declined markedly. In 2000 Nicaragua received 486,000 foreign visitors and took in $116 million from tourism. Major tourist sites include the Volcan Masaya National Park and the islands in Lake Nicaragua, including Las Isletas, a cluster of small, tropical islands off Granada. In Managua, an important attraction is the Footprints of Acahualinca, the marks of humans and animals fleeing a volcanic eruption about 4000 bc that were preserved in the volcanic ash.
