How Nicaragua and Costa Rica Differ

Several folks say that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few traveler amenities, but then again without the large masses either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting tourists yet, and still receive them openly.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are few up-to-date comforts such as cars or machines, clothes are still laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the usual style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also presents the aura of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green foliage still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, hide a handful remarkable temptations and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Towns and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built long before the Spanish raid into the nation. Many of the ancient settlements still keep their first names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish built at the time they landed. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
