From cocktails (Flor de Caña rum and coke) and the local Toña beer at happy hour, to whole lobster hauled in fresh from the ocean, Nicaraguan food and drink is fresh, colourful and delicious. In a place where you can quench your thirst with fresh coconuts and gorge on fresh produce plucked from local quintas (farms), there’s plenty of options the whole family will love. Our favourite local dishes include deep-fried plantains (tostones), tortillas stuffed with cheese (quesillo) and rice with beans and coconut milk (gallo pinto) – the latter which is the perfect breakfast fuel to set you up for a day of surfing.
