Morgan’s Rock is located on a 4000-acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle. Its concept and operation reflects this whimsical feeling of privacy and seclusion. Natural luxury on a private white sand tropical beach, stunning ocean-view bungalows, all within a 4,000-acre jungle define the Morgan’s Rock experience. Morgan´s Rock is a 3 Ocean View Two Bedroom Villas with a private pool and 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 private reserve. The rest is low-impact agricultural land (a farm called El Aguacate) and sustainable tropical forestland.
15 bungalows and 3 villas constructed of natural materials 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 at Morgan’s Rock Ecolodge.
The refreshing private pools and stunning ocean views set the relaxed pace for the duration of your stay. All accommodations have been soundly designed to offer shelter from rain, sun, or wind, yet touching as little of the surrounding nature as possible. The location of all the bungalows was chosen based on the least amount of trees to be cut down, in some instances taking advantage of ridding dead trees.
Guests are in for a treat when they dine at Morgan´s Rock, whether at their lovely restaurant overlooking the ocean, or over a hearty breakfast of handmade tortillas and gallo pinto (rice and beans) down at the farmhouse.
Diners at their comfortable outdoor restaurant and bar will enjoy a variety of special Nicaraguan dishes as well as an array of international flavors using the finest in local ingredients. The restaurant is located on a shady platform overlooking the pool, surrounded by forest, with a stellar view of the private beach and cove. You are invited to sit back with a glass of wine, some freshly caught seafood, and of course the complimentary stunning sunsets which are a nightly indulgence.

Located on a 4000-acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle, nearly half of Morgan’s Rock’s vast property is a private protected reserve. Nearly half of the 4,000 acre property has been designated a Private Reserve (Reserva Silvestre El Aguacate). Through reforestation, tree planting, environmental awareness and education Morgan’s Rock helps defend this important natural area against poaching, illegal logging and deforestation. Thanks to the planting of hundreds of thousands of trees and an ongoing vigilance to keep poachers off of the land wildlife has increased all over the property since the lodge opened in 2004. This protected area represents one of the last large sanctuaries, critical to the conservation of regional wildlife habitat along Central America’s Pacific coast.
