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 fresh smoothies at el Café, a fish taco at La Taqueria, or La Finca y el Mar’s signature Surf and Turf, we strive to use only the freshest local ingredients available. Sourced from our organic farm and garden or provided by a local co-op of fishermen, our dishes deliver an authentic taste of the best farm-to-table cuisine Nicaragua has to offer.
Rancho Santana’s culinary program centers around our multi-acre organic garden, farm, and a local community of fishermen and farmers. Our restaurants, our general store, and private chef services utilize ingredients produced onsite.
Located at the Clubhouse on Playa Santana, La Finca y el Mar serves farm-to-table fare with a Nicaraguan twist. Our menu caters to all tastes and highlights the day’s fresh sourced seafood, meats, and organic produce. La Finca y el Mar is open for lunch, and dinner and offers a “kids menu” for meals the whole family can enjoy.
