Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Several folks claim that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few vacationer amenities, however without the large masses either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting vacationers yet, and even receive them openly.

Comparatively, towns such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled seven decades back. There are not many modern-day comforts such as vehicles or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and carts are the usual manner of transportation. Then again, Ometepe likewise has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green plant life still rule the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three distinct mountain chains, conceal some phenomenal allures and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built long before the Spanish raid into the nation. Many of the old settlements still hold their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they arrived. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
