Popoyo, Nicaragua
Rancho Santana

Rancho Santana is a world-class resort and residential community located on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. It boasts 2,700 acres of rolling hills and two miles of rocky and dramatic shore, broken up by five distinct beaches each offering their own unique experiences.

Rancho Santana provides guests the technological comforts of first world living while maintaining the quiet and rustic appeal of the area. The Ranch boasts two clubhouses with pools, a Beach & Surf Club with a convenient one-stop shop for all your “day at the beach” essentials, art gallery, riding stables, spa, yoga and fitness studio, kids club, on and off-property tours, stand up paddleboarding, surf lessons and rentals, horseshoe pit and bocce ball court. It will be easy to fill your day with a variety of different activities, but make sure to leave a few hours for total relaxation at the beach. The natural beauty is remarkable. Soak in the sun, and take in your surroundings; admire the crystalline ocean, vibrant wildflowers, and array of reptiles and animals like the critically endangered Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles.

When hunger stirs, enjoy four on-site restaurants each renowned for its integrity and authenticity. Refresh your pallet with homemade ice cream at el Café, or keep it spicy with a fish taco at Los Perros’ La Taqueria. Eat like a King at La Finca y el Mar by ordering the signature Surf and Turf, prepared with fruits and vegetables grown from its own organic garden. Each meal will deliver an authentic taste of the best farm-to-table cuisine Nicaragua has to offer.

An awe-inspiring property in a unique location, visiting Rancho Santana is a vacation you won’t want to miss!
