ABOUT MORGAN'S ROCK - in their own words:
Barefoot luxury on a private tropical beach, stunning ocean-view bungalows, all within a 4,000-acre jungle define the Morgan's Rock experience. The ecolodge is a 15-bungalow hideaway on a mile-long picturesque sandy beach, frequented year-round by nesting sea turtles. Nearly half of the vast property is a government-designated reserve. The rest is low-impact agricultural land (a farm called El Aguacate) and sustainable tropical forestland (owned and managed by Desarrollo Ecoforestal, S.A.).

Opened in 2004 by owners, the Poncon family, Morgan’s Rock is two hours by car from Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, on the Southern Pacific Coast of this ready to be discovered Central American country. The forested land and reserve hosts a variety of exotic animals like spider, howler and capuchin monkeys, deer, reptiles, and many native and migrant birds.

Morgan’s Rock is a one of a kind vacation destination. We are a luxury accommodation provider, but more than that we provide memories that last a lifetime. Many of our guests are return visitors. Our mission is to provide guests with ultimate relaxation, peace of mind, and an authentic local experience. Equally important to us is the preservation of Nicaragua’s vital ecosystems and wildlife, as well as cultural preservation and community involvement. Our contributions to conservation and community are highly visible. Guests contribute to our social and environmental mission simply by staying with us, allowing our continued support of community education and environmental conservation.

The sustainably constructed bungalows are nestled into the jungle, not far from the hacienda’s private beach. They are exquisite when lit up at night. Guests can relax on the beach and participate in numerous activities and off-site excursions. 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.
