Morgan's Rock Ecolodge

Located on a 4000-acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle, nearly half of Morgan’s Rock’s vast property is a private protected reserve. Its concept and operation reflect this whimsical feeling of privacy and seclusion. There are 15 bungalows and 3 villas constructed of natural materials which are tucked away into the lush jungle. A king size bed and an exterior hanging daybed suspended by thick marine rope highlight the casual luxury you will experience. The refreshing plunge pools and stunning ocean views set the relaxed pace for the duration of your stay. Walk across the suspension bridge and embrace the stunning views of the private beach sanctuary, highlighted by watercolor sunsets every late afternoon.

The sustainably constructed bungalows are nestled in the jungle not far from the hacienda’s private beach. They are exquisite when light up. Guests can relax on the beach and participate in numerous activities, both On and Off-Site Experiences. Lounge in a hammock under the shade of the palapa (thatched beach hut), rejuvenate with an early morning yoga session, hike to some of the best outlooks in the area, admire the fiery sunset over the Pacific with a glass of wine, or explore the vast property and its environs.

Beach House
Unseen from the beach the Family house is tucked in on a small hill behind the tamarind trees on the beach. Local materials are used throughout the buildings, the majority of the wood coming from the Morgan´s Rock property itself. The house provides plenty of spaces for family getaway adventure, including a pool which sits surrounded by trees often filled with monkeys. Several decks offer many dining options depending on the mood, the rain, the sun. The large kitchen and Big Green Egg Grill make sure that cooking is part of the family experience. Bedrooms and bathrooms offer unique indoor-outdoor feel that makes any vacation truly memorable.

The lodge is strategically located to the south of Nicaragua’s most important tourism destination Granada and just north of the Costa Rican border. You can fly into Nicaragua’s capital Managua or Liberia located in Northern Costa Rica. Liberia, Costa Rica to Morgan’s Rock (3 hours) Once at the Liberia airport, we can organize your transfer to Morgan’s Rock. The cost of the transfer depends on the number of people traveling in your party. There is an international airport in the capital city of Managua which is located 3 hours by car, or a short 35-minute flight, arriving on the property’s private landing strip.

As tempting as it is to stay in a cozy bungalow all day, Morgan’s Rock offers a long list of activities that promote a heightened awareness of the ecology and culture of Nicaragua. Some of the onsite activities include trekking; ranging from a self-guided walk through the jungle to the more rigorous La Pluma hike at the highest point, the farm tour, horse-back riding, kayaking, surfing and boat trips. Guests are encouraged to get involved with the various sustainability projects such as laying down the seed for one of the millions (yes, millions!) of trees that have been planted since Morgan’s Rock got its start.

Breakfast at the Farm
Learn all about life on the farm! Explore a working dairy farm and learn what it takes to get dairy products from farm to table. Here we will milk cows, gather eggs, visit the animals and make fresh tortillas. We will prepare and enjoy a hearty traditional breakfast.

The Hacienda Experience
To get your bearings on this vast expanse of land and allow for a glimpse of the daily operations of a Nicaraguan hacienda (or farm). The idea is to briefly explain the “stations” of operation and to see the overview of our operations.
