Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

A number of people argue that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many traveler services, but without the large masses either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing tourists yet, and even welcome them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are few up-to-date features such as vehicles or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the common manner of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe likewise presents the aura of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green plant life still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three isolated mountain chains, conceal quite a few impressive temptations and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish invasion into the nation. Lots of the old settlements still hold their initial names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish constructed at the time they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
