Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

A number of folks claim that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few traveler amenities, however without the large masses either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of hosting tourists yet, and even welcome them openly.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like 70 years back. There are not many up-to-date features such as vehicles or appliances, pant and shirts are even now washed in the river, and horses and carts are the common manner of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe likewise presents the atmosphere of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and flourishing plant life still rule the surroundings.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal some remarkable temptations and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish raid into the country. Many of the ancient settlements even now retain their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish built at the time they arrived. These mountains produce some of the greatest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
