Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several individuals claim that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many tourist features, but none of the hordes of people either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners so far, and in spite of everything receive them openly.

Comparatively, townships like Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are not many up-to-date features like vehicles or appliances, clothes are still washed in the river, and horses and carts are the usual mode of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also has the aura 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, hide some remarkable allures and scenery, like mysterious waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Townships and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built far before the Spanish raid into the nation. Countless of the ancient villages still retain their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish built at the time they arrived. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
