Hacienda & Eco lodge Morgan’s Rock is part of a 1,000-hectare reforestation project and an 800-hectare private nature reserve. More than 1.5 million hardwood and fruit trees have been planted during the past eight years in order to speed the return of the land to its natural state as an ecosystem. The actual owners bought the land with the goal of reforesting and tree farming and providing employment to the local community. In 2004, the family decided to build a hotel with minimum environmental impact, in order to preserve the nature and animals in the surrounding area. These reforested lands, together with the nature reserve and the estuary host a variety of wildlife from howler monkeys and sloths, to white tipped dear, and many native birds of this subtropical region. The beach is a nesting ground for giant sea turtles and guests are allowed to experience and enjoy this amazing site under the strict guidance of our guides. Take part in the different activities available and experience the life in the hacienda as well as the adventure and nature tours available. Some of the sustainable environmental practices applied in the hotel are the use of solar panels to heat the water for the bungalows, the furniture in rooms were made by local artisans using the leftover wood from the bungalow construction. Trees were not cut to give space for the bungalows. The majority of the products used in the kitchen are organically grown and raised at the Hacienda, including a variety of fruits, dairy products, poultry and shrimp.

Accommodations: 15 spacious bungalows built with tropical woods acquired from responsibly managed logging sources or reforestation projects in Nicaragua, ensuring artistic yet ecologically responsible built bungalows. All have been soundly designed to offer shelter from rain, sun or wind, yet touching as little of the surrounding nature as possible. The stone walls, offering the base and the best support during the breezy season, are hand-cut and tailor-made slabs from volcanic stone. The copper piping in the showers and sinks were created and designed by the Architect Matthew Falkiner and by the German Engineer who built the suspension bridge. Each bungalow features a king size bed and a queen size sofa bed; a private deck/terrace with a hanging bed hammock, private bathroom with hot/cold shower (heated by solar panels). Due to conservation concerns and design our bungalows are cooled by enormous ceiling fans (no air conditioning). Bungalow access requires stairs and path climbing along with crossing a 100 meter suspension bridge.
