Comparing Nicaragua and Costa Rica

Some people claim that Nicaragua these days is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and a small number of vacationer amenities, however none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not weary of seeing foreigners so far, and still receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica resembled 70 years ago. There are not many up-to-date amenities like cars or machines, clothes are still washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the usual style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also has the aura of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where towering mountains and flourishing plant life still dominate the country side.

The northern mountains, made up of three isolated mountain chains, hide quite a few phenomenal temptations and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this zone and runs down to the Caribbean. Townships and settlements in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish invasion into the nation. Lots of the ancient settlements still retain their original names, and remain side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish erected at the time they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
