What are the views from the breakfast terrace? Jungle in three directions – and the Pacific Ocean with one and a half kilometers of remote beach in the other. There is a subtle taste of the salty air on one’s lips, it smells like the tropics, the temperature is already thirty degrees Celsius and in the jungle, the matutinal bird song is playing: The hardly travelled destinations on the tourist map are dwindling – but Nicaragua is certainly one of them.
Especially the Private Reserve Morgan’s Rock near San Juan del Sur with its 15 bungalows. Over 16 square kilometers extends the private reserve in which the hacienda is located, tens of thousands of trees have been reforested here in the last two decades, rare turtles build their nests on the beach. Morgan’s Rock is exactly what you would call a ‘jungle hideaway’ – and the greatest luxury of all is to be able to just be here and breathe this kind of freedom.
You would like to drop by sometime? To go say hello in a village school, meet local craftspeople, check out your own farm? No problem, that is all part of it: Nicaragua in private. The capital Managua is a three-hour drive away, the border to Costa Rica about 50 kilometers.
