Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

A number of people say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many traveler services, but none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of hosting tourists so far, and still receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are few up-to-date features such as vehicles or machines, laundry is still laundered in the river, and horses and buggies are the common style of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also develops the aura of a fairytale world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green foliage still dominate the scenery.

The northern mountains, consisting of three separate mountain chains, conceal quite a few remarkable allures and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and streams down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built far before the Spanish invasion into the country. Many of the ancient settlements still keep their first names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
