Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Several folks say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and a small number of vacationer amenities, however without the large masses either. Furthermore, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners so far, and still welcome them openly.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are not many up-to-date amenities like cars or devices, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and carts are the usual style of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also develops the aura of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green vegetation still rule the country side.

The northern mountains, consisting of three distinct mountain chains, conceal quite a few remarkable attractions and backdrop, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this zone and runs down to the Caribbean. Communities and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed long before the Spanish invasion into the nation. Countless of the ancient villages still keep their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish built at the time they landed. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
