Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several individuals argue that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many vacationer services, however without the large masses either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing foreigners yet, and even receive them openly.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are few modern amenities such as cars or machines, laundry is still laundered in the river, and horses and buggies are the conventional manner of transportation. Then again, Ometepe likewise presents the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green plant life still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, made up of three isolated mountain chains, conceal quite a few remarkable attractions and backdrop, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this area and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built long before the Spanish invasion into the country. Countless of the old settlements still retain their first names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected when they landed. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
