ECOTOURISM IN NICARAGUA
Ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education.”
Ecotourism is a word that over the years has more impact and therefore more value. According to The International Ecotourism Society, Ecotourism is defined as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education.”
Nicaragua is a country of tremendous biodiversity, mostly due to its excellent geographic position. Within the boundaries of the country, you will find Central America’s biggest rainforests, the Pacific Coast, and the beautiful Atlantic areas as well as mountains and volcanoes. From rainforests and dry tropical forests to savanna-type plains and aquatic habitats, Nicaragua attracts a great variety of wildlife. Without a doubt, this country’s biodiversity is perfect for Ecotourism.
Nicaragua strives to be a sustainable and responsible destination. Forward-thinking hoteliers, travelers, and entrepreneurs are creating more and more initiatives that aim to develop Nicaragua’s sustainable tourism industry. Now, many small ecolodges run by locals, established tourism cooperatives that promote sustainable socio-economic growth by providing jobs to the residents. Medical and educational assistance are also being provided with funds from various ecolodges in the country. And of course, the environment will never be missed. The tourism industry in Nicaragua also strives to achieve an improved environmental condition that sustains the well-being of the local flora and fauna, and the environment.
Morgan’s Rock Ecolodge
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.
Through reforestation, tree planting, environmental awareness, and education Morgan’s Rock helps defend this important natural area against poaching, illegal logging, and deforestation. This protected area represents one of the last large sanctuaries, critical to the conservation of regional wildlife habitat along Central America’s Pacific coast.
