Bringing over 15 years of culinary experience in high-end restaurants to the challenge, Scott joined the Magnific Rock Café in the early days. He has since developed his team of locals from the nearby village (with no prior restaurant experience), into highly qualified gourmet chefs, capable of blowing minds with flavor.

Founded and sponsored by Magnific Rock, the Tola Rugby Club now has a number of rugby teams comprised of locals from around the area. They meet on a weekly basis for training, and travel the nationwide to compete with other Nicaraguan teams. Feel free to join one of their weekly training sessions, or come along and cheer at one of the matches!
