Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Some people argue that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many tourist features, however none of the huge crowds either. Also, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing foreigners yet, and still welcome them openly.

Comparatively, towns such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are not many up-to-date comforts such as cars or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and carts are the common manner of transportation. Then again, Ometepe likewise has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and lush plant life still dominate the scenery.

The northern mountains, made up of three separate mountain chains, conceal some remarkable temptations and backdrop, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this area and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed long before the Spanish conquest into the nation. Lots of the old villages still keep their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish built when they landed. These mountains produce a number of the greatest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
