Travel Central America: Nicaragua vs Costa Rica

A number of individuals claim that Nicaragua now is what Costa Rica looked like 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and few tourist amenities, but none of the huge crowds either. Likewise, Nicaraguans are not tired of hosting foreigners so far, and still receive them openly.

Comparatively, cities such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are more like what Costa Rica looked like 70 years back. There are few up-to-date amenities like vehicles or machines, laundry is even now washed in the river, and horses and buggies are the conventional mode of transportation. Then again, Ometepe also has the feeling 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 distinct mountain chains, hide quite a few remarkable temptations and scenery, like hidden waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco originates from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, made far before the Spanish raid into the country. Countless of the ancient villages even now retain their original names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe forts the Spanish erected when they arrived. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
