ON OUR RADAR / Morgan’s Rock

Dramatically entered by a 150-foot suspension bridge carving through the rainforest, Morgan’s Rock resort is set in the Nicaraguan jungle. Perched on the hillside, fifteen rustic and stylish bungalows feature suspended daybeds, secluded terraces and sustainably made wood furnishings.

Looking for an adventure? Surf the world-class waves, kayak through mangroves or enjoy a guided hike through the jungle and to see howler monkeys, spider monkeys and three toed sloths up close and personal.

Want to join #THECARRYONEFFECT? From July to January, masses of turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Worldwide, there are seven species of sea turtles and five of them exist around Nicaragua, all endangered. Morgan’s Rock offers guests the opportunity to help a tiny hatchling make its way into the ocean. Lucky guests get to witness the baby turtles emerging from their shells and carry them closer to the water for safe passage.

We’ll let you in on another secret. About an hour and a half away from the hotel at La Flor Beach Natural Reserve, following the moon’s cycle, thousands of Olive Ridley turtles emerge out of the sea at night together to lay their eggs in what is known as an ‘arribada’, or arrival. This is a very special adventure for guests of all ages.
