Imagine a place where each day starts off with the roars of howler monkeys and ends with brilliant sunsets. Picture  a safe haven for many endangered species: howler, white-face, and spider monkeys, jaguars, alligators, tapirs, sloths, toucans, parrots, and a rainbow of orchids and butterflies.

Accessible only by boat, Makengue is a 190-acre off-the-grid private reserve. We’re located in virgin rainforest on the Pocosolito River that feeds into the San Juan River in Southern Nicaragua near the Costa Rican border. Join us there.

The mission of the Makengue Reserve is to conserve rainforest biodiversity through environmental research, international education, and engaging the local community. The reserve has virgin rain forests with amazing flora and fauna!

Safeguarding a forest, as well as ensuring the livelihoods of its inhabitants, has a real effect on climate change and “is one of the smartest things that we can do.”
