The co-director of the Nicaraguan Institute of Tourism (INTUR), Anasha Campbell, held a meeting with the ecotourism students of URACCAN Las Minas campus, on her campus in Siuna. The civil service urged university students to appropriate their culture, their traditions, customs, "the natural beauties possessed by every corner of our Nicaragua and especially the Caribbean Coast".

"Tourism is a powerful tool that contributes to poverty reduction and improving the quality of life of our population, but it is necessary to have human talents trained to promote the development of responsible, sustainable, inclusion and accessible tourism for all," said INTUR's owner.

Anasha Campbell also recommended that young women not study to work for someone, but look for how to undertake, to have that interest, that entrepreneurial spirit of having their own business to offer services to domestic and foreign tourists.

Fredy Zamora ortega, an Ecotourism student at URACCAN, said that on behalf of all students they are happy because they strengthen ideas and criteria with a focus on the career.

Xiomara Alvarez Flores, also an Ecotourism student, recounted it was a nice experience to share with the representative of tourism in Nicaragua.

For her part, the Msc. Rosa Montenegro Flores, coordinator of the Education and Languages Area, assured that the meeting allowed us to continue articulating and training Ecotourism students. In addition, she reported that INTUR's co-director pledged to work hand in hand to take advantage of national and foreign congresses, but also exchanges of experiences with other municipalities in the region.

INTUR's co-director was received at the Las Minas compound by Dr. Angélica Leonor Ruiz Calderón, vice-chancellor of the campus, and was accompanied by Siuna Mayor Otilio Duarte Herrera, who also visited URACCAN's Awawas natural laboratory, where they saw the guardiolas zoo and noted the damage caused by Hurricane IOTA in that space.
