Equipo Editorial | Jun 16, 2011
A new look, sections and more technological features on our modern design. Read more about it on this article. Check it out!
We are excited to introduce the new ViaNica.com! Here, you will find all the content from the previous version, plus several new features and useful tools. This modern format preserves the practicality and speed that characterize us. On the following article, we will describe the new structure and features of our site. Our goal is always the same: to be the face of tourism in Nicaragua.
Each visitor will find a wide range of information about tourism in Nicaragua (both in English and Spanish): destinations, attractions, news articles, events, discounts, special themes, transportation and several guides offering the services of companies and initiatives of the country. In addition to a lot of articles and images, the current design now includes maps and tools to interact through social networks such as facebook, twitter and others.
Online Reservations Central
Any foreigner and national tourist with a credit card will now be able to book nights at a hotel, tours and airline tickets through ViaNica.com. The redesign of the website includes the launch of the first reservations central in all Central America. Our reservations system is easy to use and has high quality anti-fraud security measures.
Since this is a new project in Nicaragua, the reservations central will begin with a trial phase that will last three months. In this phase, we have included 19 hotels from different destinations of the country. Furthermore, there are three touroperators offering 34 circuits in several departments. Finally, we have a new tool to book tickets with many international airlines. After this trial, we will include all the companies that meet the requirements to offer online services.
Destinations: municipality classification
Nicaragua has a lot to offer within each place of its territory: natural and cultural destinations, many activities and multiple services. Hence, ViaNica.com changed its Destinations Section and divided it by municipalities. Now, each of the 15 Nicaraguan departments, as well as its two autonomus regions, has a general tourist profile. Moreover, each of the 153 municipalities in which the departments and regions are divided – also has its own profile with images, geographic locations and a small description.
The work has just begun: with all the tourism offer in each municipality, being able to present a complete profile will be a task of constant updating. Nowadays, several profiles of the municipalities have abundant information, but others only display the basic references. However, we will be adding new attractions, companies and activities to those profiles.
Attractions and activities
Information about where to go, what to see and what to do in Nicaragua is now available on our Attractions and Activity Guide. We will add new options on each municipality so we can have a more complete guide. Each attraction and activity has its own profile, which includes a description, images, a comments section, instructions to get there and much more.
All the atractions are divided into categories. Here, you will find natural reserves, lagoons, museums, theaters, volcanoes, crafts workshops and more. The activities include birdwatching, scuba diving, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding and biking tours, among other things.
The useful travel guide is always available on ViaNica.com. You will be able to see options, compare and choose among the services of any of the companies listed on our website. Information about where to go, eat, dance and learn a new language in Nicaragua is part of our content.
