For this tour the ¨Urraca¨ truck, a monster Toyota 4x4, escorts you comfortably in its wooden bench through the hills of the property up to one of the best lookout points in the area. Along the way, as you relax and enjoy the impressive scenery you may spot spider monkeys, colorful toucans, and white-faced monkeys curiously peering back at you. An invigorating tour, whether you choose to ride in the back of our 4 x 4 (1 hour ride) or, for those wanting a real challenge who may choose to embark on the journey by foot (a 3 hour trek). This tour takes visitors deep into the nature around Morgan’s Rock and into the vast 1,800 acre forest reserve on the property (Reserva Silvestre Privada El Aguacate), giving you a taste of the rich diversity Nicaragua has to offer
The Central American isthmus represents only 0.5 percent of the world’s landmass, but is home to over 10 percent of the world’s biodiversity. Nicaragua, being the largest country in Central America, comprises a large part of this biodiversity and hosts a great variety of ecosystems ranging from coastal mangroves and volcano slopes to lowland tropical rainforests, rivers and lakes. Nicaragua has gotten off to a late start in terms of protecting its natural resources and it was not until 1990 that protected areas have received planning and support. By 2002, Nicaragua had 76 protected areas encompassing 18 percent of its territory.
While staying at Morgan’s Rock we recommend that you visit the following protected areas: Mombacho Natural Reserve, Masaya National Park, Maderas Volcano Nature Reserve and La Flor Wildlife Refuge.
