The Mission of Makengue is to conserve rainforest biodiversity through environmental research, international education, and engaging the local community.
Rio San Juan, Nicaragua
Imagine a place where each day starts off with the roars of howler monkeys and ends with brilliant sunsets. A place where reptiles, birds, insects, mammals, and other diverse wildlife converge. Makengue is a 190-acre private reserve located in the rainforest along the Pocosolito River that feeds into the San Juan River in Southern Nicaragua along the border with Costa Rica. Accessible only by boat, the off-grid private reserve has no neighbors and is a safe haven for many endangered species: howler, white-face, and spider monkeys, jaguars, alligators, toucans, parrots and a rainbow of orchids and butterflies.
