Dining 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 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.

Farms & Sustainability

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.

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.
