Why Stay At Hacienda & Ecolodge Morgan's Rock
A 15-room eco-lodge in Nicaragua's El Aguacate nature reserve, on the country's eastern coast.
Most guests heading to this thatched-roof resort near La Flor National Park pack hiking boots and swimsuits, anticipating the area's tropical forests and Pacific Coast beaches. But some also bring books to donate to the school that Morgan's Rock helps support. The lodge is blazing a trail in Central America's green-tourism industry with its do-the-right-thing ethos. Cathedral ceilings are crafted from responsibly harvested woods; nature guides are recruited from surrounding villages. Expect to unplug: internet and TV's are substituted for 270-square-foot verandas and outdoor showers. Kayak through mangroves as the sun rises, then order almond pancakes and juice squeezed from fruit grown in the property's own gardens.
Sign up for "Breakfast at the Farm," where you'll milk cows, choose your own hen's eggs, and make fresh corn tortillas, followed by a traditional morning breakfast.
From June through December, ask the staff to alert you to nighttime sea turtle sightings.
Arrive at Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport (MGA) which is approximately 80 miles from the Lodge. Anticipate about 2 hours of travel time.Playa Ocotal, 12 km North of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
