Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several folks argue that Nicaragua these days is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many tourist features, however without the large masses either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners so far, and even receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, towns like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years before. There are few up-to-date amenities like vehicles or machines, pant and shirts are still laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the common manner of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also presents the atmosphere of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and lush plant life still rule the backdrop.

The northern mountains, made up of three distinct mountain chains, hide quite a few phenomenal temptations and backdrop, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Communities and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish raid into the country. Countless of the ancient settlements still retain their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce a lot of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
