This 4,000-acre jungle hideaway boasts a mile-long picturesque sandy beach, and the family has proudly maintained half of the vast property as a Private Reserve. Morgan´s Rock Private Reserve is frequented year-round by two species of endangered turtles. Of the seven species of marine turtles in the world today, five are endangered. In Nicaragua, sea turtles are threatened by both natural predators and humans. At Morgan’s Rock, we are proud to support sea turtle conservation efforts. We, along with our guests, are grateful for the unique opportunity to witness sea turtles both nesting and hatching in their natural environment. Guests to Morgan’s Rock, witness the baby hatchlings scurrying out to sea, their passage overseen by Morgan’s Rock staff and guests as we protect the little ones from predators during this crucial stage of their journey.  A unique opportunity, our guests frequently say this as one of the most memorable experiences of their stay here at the hacienda.

Other animals inhabiting the jungle reserve and estuary around Morgan’s Rock include howler monkeys, macaws, anteaters, sloths and white tipped dear, to name just a few. Most of the birds are typical of subtropical dry forest lands, These include scarlet macaws, trogons, kingfishers, herons and egrets.
