La Cantina has really good American bar food made with local Nicaraguan ingredients. Breakfasts are awesome, but the best of La Cantina are the really cold beers waiting for you at all times!

This place isn't really a brick and mortar restaurant...it's actually a simple, screened in area at a mediocre surf camp. Food is okay, but nothing to write about. Not authentic fare for the region, this place is run by Americans who have a healthy appetite for cheese-laden nachos and margaritas. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. I think...
