The Magic Of Reforestation
Join Morgan’s Rock global initiative and help nature by planting a tree. The trees are a food source for animals living in the forest like the agoutis and monkeys. Every species has a favorite. The Jicaro tree for active squirrels and Guapinol for sloths who are hanging around.
Monkey & Sloth Quest
This quest takes us into the jungle seeking the three species of monkeys found in the Nicaraguan forest: Howler monkeys, Shy Spider monkeys, and the mischievous White-Faced Capuchins.
Take a short walk from the lodge to where the river meets the beach. Just after sunrise, the river is alive with the sound and sights of a variety of species. Then, you will walk the main trail of the dry forest along the river looking and listening for bird calls as the guide explains about the resident and migratory species.
