A Unique Location

Tucked between the vast Pacific and immense Lake Nicaragua, Rancho Santana has the distinction of being one of the only isthmuses on the entire Pacific Ocean. An isthmus is defined as a strip of land that is bordered on both sides by water, yet connected on each end by land. This rare geographical phenomenon gives the Ranch nearly constant breezes.

These breezes are an enjoyment all their own, but also create some of the world’s most vertical waves, providing both visual drama as well as world-class surfing.

The Restaurant

Situated on Playa Santana and offering authentic farm-to-table fine dining, our highly-acclaimed, flagship restaurant, La Finca y el Mar (The Farm and the Sea), sources its food from Rancho Santana’s multi-acre organic garden as well as the neighboring ocean.  It strives to serve only ingredients locally grown on the ranch (or formerly swimming nearby!) and has inspired the creation of multiple dining venues throughout the ranch, all sharing that same philosophy.
