TRIBUTE to MARK TWAIN and RUBEN DARIO

On December 29th 2016, a special grand unveiling was performed on the South Malecón (Boardwalk) at the entrance to the new Tourist Center. The sculpture unveiled is in honor of Mark Twain and Rubén Darío by the artist Arnoldo Guillén. It depicts both characters sitting on a bench in front of the Bay of San Juan del Sur. Both of these literary giants have made valuable contributions to Nicaragua by way of the international recognition the country has gained through their works. The event was coordinated by the Nicaraguan Institute of Culture, Solentiname Tours, The Municipal Government of San Juan del South and the Embassy of The United States in Managua.

After the unveiling, a reception was held at Pelican Eyes Resort and Spa during which Twain and Darío were fondly remembered with poems and stories expressed by characters such as; Pedro Joaquín Chamorro Barrios (Former Member of The National Assembly), Francisco Arellano Oviedo (Director of the Nicaraguan Academy of Language), Luis Morales Alonso (Co-Director of the Nicaraguan Institute of Culture) and also Laura Dogu (The US Ambassador to Nicaragua) and Randall Granja (Deputy Mayor of San Juan del Sur Randall Granja).

They paid tribute to Mark Twain on what was the 150th anniversary of him having arrived in San Juan del Sur to start his travels through Nicaragua. Tributes also went to Rubén Darío “The Prince of the Castilian Word”. The monument was described as representing two characters that lived in different times in history yet both found a way to visualize and describe the beauty of Nicaragua as it related to them. In addition, this monument recreates the custom of locals and tourists who converse and enjoy a beautiful sunset in our port city.

Twain traveled to New York through Lake Nicaragua and the San Juan River, on the famous crossing called “Route of Transit”. The exclusive tour with only 22 passengers made up of students, professionals, some who were retired (all lovers of literature) came from the United States, Nicaragua and Germany.
