In 2010 the Nicaraguan Tourism Institute counted 62 businesses dedicated to providing travel organization services, and last year, this figure reached 161, thanks to the growth experienced in tourism in the country. 

The former president of the Association of Inbound Tourism of Nicaragua (ANTAR), Antonio Armas, believes that "... this dynamism in tour operator trade is related to the easing of bureaucracy linked to setting up companies in this sector, greater entrepreneurship and the boom in tourism which the country is experiencing."
