Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several people claim that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and a small number of tourist amenities, but without the large masses either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners so far, and even welcome them openly.

Comparatively, cities like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are not many up-to-date comforts like cars or machines, pant and shirts are even now washed in the river, and horses and carts are the common mode of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also develops the feeling of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green plant life still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, veil some remarkable allures and backdrop, like mysterious waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built far before the Spanish conquest into the nation. Lots of the ancient settlements even now retain their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
