Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several folks say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few tourist services, however without the large masses either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not bored of seeing tourists so far, and even receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are not many modern-day comforts such as cars or appliances, clothes are still laundered in the river, and horses and buggies are the conventional mode of transportation. Then again, Ometepe likewise presents the feeling of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and flourishing plant life still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal a handful impressive temptations and backdrop, like mysterious waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish conquest into the nation. Countless of the ancient settlements still keep their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish constructed at the time they landed. These mountains produce a number of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
