Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

A number of individuals say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few traveler services, but without the large masses either. Also, Nicaraguans are not tired of seeing foreigners so far, and even receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, towns such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica looked like seven decades back. There are not many modern features such as cars or machines, clothes are even now washed in the river, and horses and carts are the usual manner of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe likewise has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and green foliage still rule the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal quite a few remarkable temptations and scenery, like mysterious waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and parishes in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, made far before the Spanish invasion into the country. Countless of the old settlements even now retain their first names, and sit side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish constructed at the time they landed. These mountains produce a number of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
