1. Playa Roca
A great local spot right on the beach. They have cheap beers, typical Nicaraguan food the perfect view of people surfing all hours of the day. Playa Roca is a favorite spot amongst our graduates and students for sunset beers.
Located right next door to Playa Roca, but offers a wider selection of food and drinks. Being fairly new to the beach they have a cool aesthetic with wooden crates for chairs and benches and are sustainable as they use very little plastic! They also have great vegetarian options.
3. Mama Pizza
Our students and graduates claim they have the best pizza on the beach! Also beachfront and a great place to enjoy fresh pizza, beers, and the stunning sunsets in Las Peñitas. Mama pizza is also located right next to one of our TEFL housing options, Sol y Mar.
Sua offers the most diverse menu at the beach and they are known for their amazing tapas dishes. Other options include acai smoothie bowl for breakfast and homemade gnocchi with pesto sauce. Not only is the food delicious, but the atmosphere is tranquil and inviting. They also have live music a few nights every week just in time for sunset. You’ll definitely want to check this spot out!
5. Mono Loco
One of the newest additions to Las Peñitas, but their food and atmosphere make you think they’ve been running this place for years! Their menu includes delicious burgers, Thai curry, and chow mein and the service is awesome! A great late night option after watching the sunset right across the street at Playa Roca.
