How Nicaragua and Costa Rica Differ

Some people say that Nicaragua these days is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many traveler amenities, but none of the hordes of people either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners yet, and still welcome them sincerely.

Comparatively, towns such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like seven decades before. There are few up-to-date comforts like cars or devices, pant and shirts are even now laundered in the river, and horses and buggies are the usual mode of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also presents the atmosphere of a fairytale world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green plant life still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, hide some remarkable allures and backdrop, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this area and runs down to the Caribbean. Townships and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish raid into the nation. Many of the old settlements even now hold their original names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they landed. These mountains produce a number of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
