Casualities of the social unrest in Nicaragua

Tourism, Nicaragua's 3rd largest industry (San Juan del Sur's #1 revenue source) has literally been wiped out overnight. 90% of all travel planned and bookings to Nicaragua were canceled and hotel occupancy rates have fallen below 8%. In the San Juan del Sur area, nearly half of all business have shut their doors either temporarily or permanently. This is not isolated only to the small or weak at heart. Even the mightiest of ships have gone down in the fury. Mukul, Nicaragua's premier 5 star Ocean Front resort backed by Pellas Group and Luxury Auberge Resorts Collection announced Friday that it will close its operations indefinitely leaving over 500 local Nicaraguans unemployed.
