But a tailormade vacation in Nicaragua isn’t all about the adventure. Wind your way through colonial city streets and meander up mangroves that sing with vibrant birdsong to hideaway on private islands reminiscent of the Caribbean of days gone by.

During its fraught civil war in the 1970s, Nicaragua became the byword for destabilisation and the machinations of cold and calculating men. It was during this period that Susan Meiselas took a now iconic photograph, of a member of the country’s rebel faction throwing – in mid act – a petrol bomb, while clasping a machine gun in the other. These days, Nicaragua has shrugged off its bloody past, and enters the world a far more stable, and inviting, place than such images suggest. A beautiful landscape of dense mangroves, moody volcanoes and warm-sanded beaches, Nicaragua – between the its Spanish colonial architecture and vibrant street culture – is quickly becoming a go-to vacation destination for the culturally curious.

This luxury hacienda and eco-lodge is nestled on a private beach fringed by the Nicaraguan jungle. Morgan’s Rock, as it is known, is a genuinely secluded paradise from which to watch (slack jawed) the sun sinks into the beguiling Pacific Ocean. Craggy cliffs, warm bays and buzzing rainforest make for a truly remote and pastoral escape from it all. This is the true meaning of ‘logging off.’
