Morgan’s Rock, Nicaragua’s pioneering, upscale ecolodge, invites discovery this summer and fall with a special offer: stay five-nights for the four-night rate. This is valid for Green Season visits from now until Nov. 14, 2013.

The per person, per night rate for couples starts at just $161 each including breakfasts and dinners, private bungalow accommodations and full use of all lodge and beach equipment and facilities. Lunches, bar tab, guided activities, tours and off-site excursions and gratuities are extra. A five-night stay under the current promotion will run $644 per person as opposed to the regular rate of $805 per person.

“North Americans are discovering Nicaragua as a rich and vibrant travel destination but what they don’t yet know is that summer months can be the most enjoyable time of the year here,” said Richard G. Edwards, Managing Partner of Morgan’s Rock. “Daytime temperatures hover around 82 degrees F and the forest is green and alive with creatures.”

In the Green Season (May 1 – Nov.14), the 15-bungalow resort welcomes couples, families with children ages two and up, and small groups to explore nature at their fingertips. Animals of the tropical dry forest, including several varieties of monkeys and sloths, live on the 4,500-acre protected forest reserve, while sea turtles arrive on the private beach during what is their peak nesting season.

Guests can go hiking, horseback riding and kayaking on daily tours and excursions on and off property. Activities surrounding the hacienda include visits to the on-property farm, ocean fishing, nearby surfing and just lounging on private mile-long, crescent-shaped beach that naturally inhibits rip tides. The sand has a very gradual drop-off providing shallow waters for wading, splashing and swimming.

Visitors can enjoy two kinds of surfing: traditional long and short board surfing on near-perfect breaks without crowds at Playa Maderas, 20 minutes away from Morgan’s Rock, near San Juan del Sur, the most legendary of all Nicaragua surf breaks. True adrenaline freaks can also try volcano surfing. Also known as ash boarding, it calls for protective gear and a metal board and a trip to the slopes of Cerro Negro Volcano (the youngest volcano in Central America). Here advanced riders can hit 60 km per hour while kicking up a cloud of cinders and ash.

Roadless wilderness abounds in the nearly one-fifth of Nicaragua that is protected as national parks or nature reserves. This includes Morgan’s Rock, one of the last large natural sanctuaries along Central America’s Pacific Coast. The reforested lands, together with the nature reserve and adjacent estuary, attract a variety of forest animals from howler and spider monkeys and sloth, to white tipped deer, to most of the birds native to the subtropical region.
