Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Several people say that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many tourist features, but none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of hosting foreigners so far, and even welcome them sincerely.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica looked like 70 years ago. There are not many up-to-date comforts like vehicles or machines, clothes are even now laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the conventional manner of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also has the aura of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green vegetation still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal some phenomenal temptations and backdrop, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this zone and runs down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, made long before the Spanish raid into the nation. Countless of the old villages even now hold their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish built when they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
