How Nicaragua and Costa Rica Differ

Several folks argue that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few tourist services, but none of the hordes of people either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing tourists so far, and even receive them openly.

Comparatively, townships like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled 70 years back. There are not many modern comforts like vehicles or devices, pant and shirts are even now washed in the river, and horses and carts are the common mode of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and lush vegetation still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, consisting of three separate mountain chains, conceal some remarkable attractions and backdrop, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and flows down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, made far before the Spanish raid into the country. Countless of the old settlements even now keep their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they landed. These mountains produce a lot of the greatest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
