Voyages of Rediscovery

The article answers questions about four destination countries for tourists: Libya, Rwanda, Croatia, and Nicaragua. A war or another well-publicized horror can keep tourists away for generations, but these countries have quietly recovered from past troubles with their beauty intact and their history well preserved. Libya has some of the best-preserved Roman ruins outside Italy. All of them were off limits to Americans until last year. A Libyan Liaison Office opened in Washington, D.C. in January and plans to issue visas to U.S. tourists. More than a million foreign visitors a year are expected by 2010. Rwanda has been at peace for 10 years, and the government has launched a major initiative to bring back tourists. Much of the country has been rebuilt, the economy has rebounded, and four major hotels have opened in the past year. Croatia's Adriatic shores offer a waterfront paradise unlike any other. In-the-know Western Europeans flock there to escape summer crowds along the French Riviera. In addition to the scenic coastline and breathtaking summer weather, Croatia has a rich cultural history and many nature preserves. Nicaragua's civil war ended 15 years ago. The infrastructure has been rebuilt, and several top resorts have opened. The country remains one of the poorest in the world, but it has held three peaceful presidential elections since 1990.
