Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Several folks argue that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few vacationer amenities, but none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of seeing foreigners so far, and still welcome them openly.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled seven decades before. There are not many up-to-date comforts such as vehicles or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the common style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe likewise has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and lush plant life still dominate the scenery.

The northern mountains, made up of three separate mountain chains, hide quite a few remarkable temptations and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed long before the Spanish conquest into the nation. Many of the ancient settlements still retain their original names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the greatest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
