Get Authentic with Agro-tourism in Nicaragua

Share |

Agrotourism-pic1 Tourists around the world are seeking a more authentic vacation, full of rich historical and cultural aspects, pertaining to the place they choose to visit. Morgan's Rock Hacienda and Ecolodge in Nicaragua has embraced this new trend in travel and taken it to the next level as the only ecolodge in Nicaragua that has sustainability standards and practices agro-tourism.

Morgan’s Rock is leading the way in Latin America promoting the essential practice of tree farming and reforestation as well as organic and traditional agriculture. If there’s one thing guests at the ecolodge will learn, it’s that food doesn’t grow in supermarkets. Nearly 70 percent of the food served at the restaurant is grown on site. How much more authentic can you get?

Sustainable Bed & Breakfast : White Pine Victorian Lodge

Share |

Ecofriendly-whitepine Members of Green Hotels Association and Sustainable Travel International, every aspect of the White Pines Victorian Lodge is dedicated to care of the earth's environment. Not only are no chemical cleaners used, but in an attempt to provide a hospitable environment for those with multiple chemical sensitivities, guests are asked to sign an agreement not to wear any chemical products, perfumes, colognes or hairsprays at the inn. All natural cotton and wool fabrics are found in rooms, and more than two million gallons of water and subsequent energy have been conserved by guests re-using towels and sheets throughout their stays, and installation of low-flow showerheads and toilets. Located in a beautiful wooded setting, guests can walk to many nearby restaurants and waterfront attractions.

Green Scheme: Over 40 million Americans have been diagnosed with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity), an invasive and complex illness. Be kind to those with super-sensitive bodies by avoiding perfumed laundry detergents, soaps, shampoos, and deodorants.
