Rancho Santana

A luxurious haven on Nicaragua's Pacific Coast

Coastal luxury with an array of activities

Nestled along Nicaragua's renowned "Emerald" Coast, Rancho Santana features an expansive 2,700-acre private ranch and coastal community.

With exclusive access to five pristine beaches, including some of the region's premier surf breaks, the property offers a haven for wellness enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers alike.

Accommodations cater to every preference, ranging from the intimate 17-room boutique hotel to spacious two-bedroom garden casitas and luxurious three-bedroom beachfront condos, ensuring a perfect fit for every guest.

The story of Rancho Santana began with six friends from Baltimore, who, in 1997, encountered Sr. Granados, inviting them to explore his family's vast estate. From these humble beginnings, a vibrant community blossomed, driven by a shared vision of a harmonious coastal lifestyle. As the community flourished, so too did its amenities, tailored to residents' desires. From beachfront surf shops and tantalising taquerias to an equestrian centre, rejuvenating spa, and serene yoga and wellness centre. Rancho Santana epitomises coastal living at its finest.

Today, the Inn & Residences stand as a testament to the community's evolution, inviting visitors worldwide to share in its distinctive charm. With a commitment to sustainability ingrained in its ethos, Rancho Santana proudly serves over 80% on-site sourced cuisine, powered entirely by its solar farm, and is the largest local employer.
