Visited this property on a ship's tour. It is far from town along a dusty road, so plan on staying if you choose this property. It would be impractical to go in and out, as for dinner at a restaurant in town. The property itself is attractive and it is a short walk down a well-maintained trail to a lovely... More

Thank you for your day visit! Our guests normally stay between 3 to 6 nights. Day trips are uncommon, but worth the trip nonetheless. We hope you can have a longer stay with us during your next trip to Morgan´s Rock. More

Stayed 3 nights and didn't leave the property (this place is remote) Wife, girls (8 and 6) and I went to MR last month and had a wonderful time. While quite remote, the property is beautiful.

Family vacations always end well at Morgan´s Rock. Every member enjoys something different, and they all go on tours, like you did with the Kayaking and the Breakfast at the Farm tour. We will tell Evaristo you send your best. Thank you for your post and for choosing Morgan´s Rock for your family vacation. More

My 6-year old son and i visited Morgan's Rock and were not disappointed by our adventure. Everything from the wildlife to the people was just as we hoped it would be. The resort is very clear that there will be a lot of walking/stairs and we were prepared for that. The beach is just amazing, very private with a lot... More

We had an unforgettable family reunion at Morgans Rock. If you love appreciating nature, but in the comfort of a simple but artistically-done bungalow with good food and fresh fruit drinks, than this is the place for you. There is no air conditioning (just fans and breeze) and nothing but screens around your room, but I found the sound of... More

I really tried hard to love this place... Unfortunately 1) the food is uninspiring. 2) It was very hard to sleep due to deafening waves that sounded like a tsunami at 2AM. 3) They toot their horns about it being "eco" - but the reforestation is happening because they are the ones chopping down the rich jungle for their furniture...

Thank you for your comments. The reforestation efforts began in 1998 when everything you saw during you stay was flat grounds used for cattle. The Owners have planted over 2 million trees since then, where lost habitats are alive once again. Many of the ingredients from the Restaurant come from the farm and sea, but there are some items we... More

This is a special place. The bungalows, the food and the location are incredible. Beware - the stairs can get a little overwhelming.

Thank you for your post. March is our dry season, which eliminates the greenery, but is much easier to spot animals and birds. The beach is definitely worth spending the entire day, and great idea of hiking to the north end of the beach. We´re glad you enjoyed your stay. More
