Rancho Santana

The Rancho Santana residential community is set on rolling hillsides and dramatic cliffs rising away from the mighty Pacific Ocean. Its world-class earth provides amazing ocean, mountain and valley views from countless lots that have been strategically plotted for the best views and maximum privacy. It is also important to mention that you have great surf breaks, yes multiple surf breaks in close proximity to the property.

The ultimate goal of Rancho Santana is to provide residents and guests with the technological comforts of first world living while maintaining the quiet and rustic appeal of the area. The Ranch has two Clubhouses that each have their own pools and are reserved for the exclusive use of owners and guests.  There are a variety of dining options as well, from farm-to-table fine dining at La Finca y el Mar to casual & traditional beach fare at The Beach & Surf Club at Playa Los Perros.  There is also a conference center and boardroom for various uses.

Rancho Santana is the perfect setting for people who like the idea of owning, enjoying, and profiting from one of the most spectacular stretches of coastal land in the world. Located just 50 miles north from the Pacific border of Costa Rica in the southwest corner of Nicaragua, this stunning 2700-acre reserve boasts more than two miles of Pacific Ocean coastline and five distinct beaches, three of which are landlocked in this private gated community.
