Guests are in for a treat when they dine in at the hacienda - whether at our lovely restaurant overlooking the ocean, or over a hearty breakfast of handmade tortillas and gallopinto (rice and beans) down at the farmhouse.
Thanks to a large working farm with cows, chickens, fruit and vegetable gardens, and even a sustainable shrimp farm, Morgan’s Rock sources roughly 60% of its food products from farming activities that take place right on the premises. Guests are welcome to visit our organic farm, where they can lend a hand collecting eggs or milking the cows, or simply kick back and enjoy a rustic breakfast cooked on the hearth by the lovely Doña Candida. Participants in this activity will even learn how to make delicious homemade tortillas!
Diners at our comfortable outdoor restaurant and bar can enjoy a variety of special Nicaraguan dishes as well as an array of international flavors. The restaurant is located on a shady platform overlooking the pool, surrounded by forest, and beyond it the private beach and cove. Guests are invited to sit back with a glass of wine, perhaps some freshly caught seafood, and of course the complimentary stunning sunsets which are a nightly treat.
On an optional excursion to nearby historic towns, visitors can meander along the vibrant colonial streets. They can shop at the bustling outdoor markets while sampling local fruits, vegetables, beans, and more while mingling with the locals. In historic Granada, be sure to try the famous nacatamales – vegetable or meat filled tamales steamed in banana leaves. On excursions, visitors may leisurely peruse the food stalls for an authentic taste of what this part of the Nicaraguan coast has to offer.
Guests who chose to visit a market in town will get a real taste of the Nicaraguan lifestyle, typical foodstuffs, and tempo. What better way to explore a culture than to learn how the locals eat? At the market or in a Nicaraguan restaurant you may come across local specialties such as:
