A Place to Live The Life

Pura Vida is what you will experience while staying at the Rip Jack Inn hotel. Nature’s playground is only steps away from the hotel where you can take your pick of waves. The hotel is located in the heart of Playa Grande, on 75 meters from the main surf break.

The beach in Playa Grande is a national park created to protect the Leatherback Turtle - so there is no development on the beach but just miles of beautiful white sand and great surf on different spots year-round. Or take a drive or organised tour to other surf spots close by like Playa Langosta, Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra or the famous Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point.

There are several restaurants and two surf shops within a five-minute walk. In Playa Tamarindo, A 20 min drive away you´ll find even more restaurants, shops, bars, discos & more surf. You don't need to go anywhere for food though, as "The Upstairs @ the RipJack" Restaurant offers some of the finest cuisines in the area. It boasts a panoramic ocean view and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
