Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Some people argue that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few vacationer services, but without the large masses either. Furthermore, Nicaraguans are not bored of seeing tourists so far, and still receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica resembled seven decades before. There are few modern amenities such as vehicles or machines, clothes are still laundered in the river, and horses and carts are the usual mode of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also has the atmosphere of a make-believe world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and lush foliage still dominate the backdrop.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, hide quite a few phenomenal attractions and scenery, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco begins from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, built far before the Spanish invasion into the nation. Many of the old villages still keep their initial names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish erected at the time they landed. These mountains produce some of the greatest coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
