TOP Beachfront Restaurants

There is no better place to enjoy a meal or a happy hour drink than at any of our favorite beachfront restaurants.  From San Juan del Sur to Popoyo, each area has their premier beachfront establishment.  Each with their unique cuisine and ocean view, you will not be disappointed with these beachfront spots.

Hacienda Iguana

Come for happy hour at sunset and you might just have to stay for dinner. There is nothing better than finishing the day with a few signature cocktails or a cold Toña while watching the sunset behind perfect barreling waves at Colorado. With an extensive menu of Latin and European dishes, the only thing better than the food at Pili’s Kitchen is the hospitality from Pili herself. From breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dinner, there is no secret why Pili’s Kitchen is the epicenter of Hacienda Iguana.

Open all days 11:30 am – 05:30 pm. due to the pandemic we have available pick-up service only.

San Juan del Sur

El Timon is a classic old school San Juan del Sur institution. With its iconic beachfront location and nostalgic nautical themed decor and uniforms, El Timon will transport you back to the old fishing port that San Juan once was. Enjoy seafood favorites from whole fried fish and grilled lobsters to fresh ceviche and carpaccios.

Open all days from 10:30 am – 10:00 pm


As the name suggests, Magnific Rock is situated atop the cliffs just south of Popoyo, with arguably one of the best views along the coast. The unique geology and picture-perfect sunsets will only enhance your visit to this area. Whether it’s for happy hour, dinner, or a late-night dance party, this place really has it all. Enjoy their local and Western food, but be sure to get a seat by the window!
