Nicaragua: Nicaragua has published ‘Nicaragua, sustainable travelling’ online maps, which provide information about 11 wildlife reserves and 18 hotels that promote environmental conservation in the central American country. Print versions of these maps are also available.
The map, promoted by the Solentiname Tour and Nicaraguan Tourism Institute, Intur, provides information about the sites and facilities that meet the parameters of the NGO Rainforest Alliance, code-based World Tourism Council of the United Nations.
Immanuel Zerger, General Manager of Solentiname Tours, explained the map provided details of three routes: Managua-Masaya-Granada-white villages, Solentiname-Rio San Juan, and Isla de Ometepe, situated in Lake Nicaragua.
Users or travellers can use icons on the map to check the sustainable activity sites, protected areas, private wildlife reserves, birding spots, nesting turtles or whale watching, world heritage, indigenous heritage and salsa and folk dancing.
Also reports on biodiversity in Nicaragua, which has protected 20 per cent of its territory (about 25,142.60 square kilometre).
The maps will be available at Solentiname Tours online.
