Dining at Rancho Santana

The Food & Beverage Program at Rancho Santana

Renowned for its integrity and authenticity, Rancho Santana’s Food and Beverage program is based on a simple premise: keep it natural.

Whether it be our homemade ice cream at el Café, a fish taco at Los Perros’ taqueria, or La Finca y el Mar’s signature Surf and Turf, we strive to use only the freshest, local ingredients available.  Prepared with fruits and vegetables grown from our own organic garden, eggs from our free-range chickens & seafood provided by a local co-op of fishermen, our food delivers an authentic taste of the best farm-to-table cuisine Nicaragua has to offer.

We take great pride in each dish we create, and invite you to experience the unique flavors of each of the ranch’s exclusive dining venues.
