Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several people say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few vacationer services, however none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing foreigners yet, and still receive them openly.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled seven decades before. There are few modern features like cars or machines, pant and shirts are even now washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the usual manner of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also has the aura of a fairytale world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green vegetation still rule the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three separate mountain chains, hide quite a few phenomenal temptations and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish invasion into the country. Countless of the old settlements even now retain their initial names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they landed. These mountains produce some of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
