With an open-air palapa-shaded restaurant overlooking the beach, Aqua gives new meaning to “dining with a view.” The bar is steps from the waves and a perfect spot to enjoy a cold glass of Toña, Nicaragua’s national beer, a cocktail made with the country’s famous Flor de Caña rum, or exotic tropical juices like passion fruit or guanabaya served fresh-squeezed over ice, or whipped with other tasty fresh ingredients into a smoothie. (Try the “Funky Monkey” smoothie made with coconut milk, cashews, banana, and Nicaraguan cacao nibs!) Head down for dinner at sunset to take in the view while ordering your fresh seafood caught by local fishermen. Try mahi-mahi grilled with spicy pineapple salsa, gallo pinto, and grilled plantains, or steamed in coconut milk on coconut rice pilaf. Native and local ingredients are sourced to ensure the freshest of meals. On some nights, the chefs make pizzas to order in the outdoor wood-burning hearth oven. Any night, you can arrange to have a romantic dinner on the beach.
