Go Off-The-Beaten Path in a 4,000-Acre Jungle at Morgan's Rock Hacienda & Ecolodge

During the 70s, a French couple toured the area now known as Morgan's Rock, surveying the crops on behalf of a French government assignment. The duo loved Nicaragua and bought the land in 1998 then developed and opened the hotel in 2004. The land management of the resort is deliberately sustainable and that’s not surprising, given its owners' backgrounds. Fields of lush farmland, including a shrimp farm, are found among the trails in the jungle, since about 30 percent of Morgan Rock's land is low-impact agricultural land. The remaining acres are sustainable tropical forestland managed by Desarrollo Ecoforestal, S.A. and are a government-designated reserve. From the beach facing the Pacific Ocean to the thriving forestland, the colors and life of Morgan's Rock are vibrant and quintessentially Nicaraguan.
