Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Some people say that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many tourist amenities, but then again none of the hordes of people either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not bored of hosting tourists so far, and in spite of everything welcome them openly.

Comparatively, cities like Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like seven decades ago. There are not many up-to-date comforts like cars or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the usual mode of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also presents the feeling of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and green plant life still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three isolated mountain chains, conceal quite a few remarkable attractions and backdrop, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this area and flows down to the Caribbean. Towns and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built long before the Spanish raid into the nation. Lots of the ancient villages still retain their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce some of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
