Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

Several people say that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many traveler amenities, however none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of hosting foreigners yet, and in spite of everything receive them openly.

Comparatively, towns such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like 70 years before. There are not many modern-day amenities like vehicles or machines, pant and shirts are still washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the conventional style of transportation. Then again, Ometepe likewise has the aura of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and lush plant life still rule the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three isolated mountain chains, veil some remarkable attractions and backdrop, like mysterious waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Communities and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed long before the Spanish raid into the country. Lots of the ancient villages still retain their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish erected at the time they landed. These mountains produce a lot of the finest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
