Regarding the prices offered by the operators in their tour packages, Iris Saldívar, a researcher at the Faculty of Economic and Administrative Sciences at the UAM, told that "... 'Generally, prices of $400 are from companies that offer package tours of two to three days. And in the case of the $1,800 days, those are tourists who stay between 7 and 8 days' ."

Regarding the location of tourism companies, the article states that "... 93% pay more attention to the Nicaraguan Pacific (Granada, San Juan del Sur, Leon, Ometepe and Masaya). Only the remaining 7% serve the Caribbean area, where the most visited destination is Corn Island, with 23%."
