Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several folks claim that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few vacationer services, however without the large masses either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing vacationers yet, and in spite of everything receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like seven decades before. There are few up-to-date comforts like vehicles or appliances, pant and shirts are still laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the common style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also presents the feeling of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and lush foliage still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three distinct mountain chains, hide some remarkable allures and backdrop, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish invasion into the country. Countless of the old settlements still keep their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish erected at the time they arrived. These mountains produce some of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
