Responsible tourism: Nicaragua holidays, tailor made tour
La Selva Negra Coffee Estate is completely self sufficient, drawing its power from hydro electricity. All the coffee and other produce is totally organic, waste is recycled and put to good use and the farm provides food, a home, a community and opportunity for a large workforce all from the local area. Selva Negra is a model for responsible, sustainable and educational tourism.
Morgan's Rock Eco Lodge - is also a model in Responsible Tourism. The lodge is a complete project which protects 800 hectares of rare and pristine tropical dry forest, a habitat which is becoming very rare in Central America due to over development in some coastal areas. The forest is a haven for wildlife and the private beach is an important nesting site for protected sea turtles which you may be lucky enough to see. 1,000 hectares are set aside for farming valuable tropical hardwood trees such as teak and rosewood in a sustainable fashion.
Visiting Nicaragua is responsible tourism in its own right. It is one of the poorest countries in Latin America and needs precious revenue from tourism. By staying in Managua, Leon and Granada you put money directly back into the community, benefiting the local economy, its people and on-going projects to restore colonial buildings.
Morgan's Rock Eco Lodge - Crops, fruit and livestock provide over 70% of the lodges food with a surplus for sale to the local community and provides employment, housing and valuable opportunities for the local community. Morgans Rock is also highly active in promoting controlled development whilst protecting the pristine environment around the San Juan Del Sur area.
