Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Several people claim that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many vacationer services, however none of the huge crowds either. Also, Nicaraguans are not bored of hosting foreigners so far, and still receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, cities like Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are few up-to-date amenities such as cars or machines, pant and shirts are still laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the common manner of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also has the atmosphere of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green plant life still rule the scenery.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal some remarkable attractions and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Towns and parishes in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, made far before the Spanish raid into the country. Countless of the old settlements still keep their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish built when they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
