How Nicaragua and Costa Rica Differ

Several people argue that Nicaragua today is what Costa Rica looked similar to 30 years ago. Underdeveloped infrastructure and not very many traveler services, however none of the huge crowds either. Furthermore, Nicaraguans are not bored of seeing foreigners so far, and even receive them sincerely.

Comparatively, townships such as Ometepe, Nicaragua are closer to what Costa Rica looked like 70 years ago. There are limited up-to-date comforts such as vehicles or machines, clothes are still washed in the river, and horses and carts are the conventional style of transportation. On the other hand, Ometepe also has the atmosphere of a imaginary world — a fantasy land — where soaring mountains and lush vegetation still rule the scenery.

The northern mountains, consisting of three isolated mountain chains, conceal a handful remarkable temptations and backdrop, like concealed waterfalls and churches. Rio Coco starts from this region and runs down to the Caribbean. Towns and villages in the Nicaraguan mountains are ancient, constructed far before the Spanish invasion into the country. Countless of the ancient villages still keep their first names, and stand side-by-side with the adobe garrisons the Spanish constructed when they landed. These mountains produce a number of the best coffee beans and tobacco in the world.
