Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Some individuals claim that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and a small number of traveler services, but none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of hosting tourists so far, and still welcome them sincerely.

Comparatively, cities like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are few up-to-date amenities like cars or devices, laundry is even now laundered in the river, and horses and buggies are the usual style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also presents the aura of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and flourishing plant life still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three separate mountain chains, conceal quite a few phenomenal attractions and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this area and flows down to the Caribbean. Townships and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish raid into the nation. Countless of the old settlements even now retain their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce some of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
