Summary

Founded in the spirit of adventure, Rip Jack Inn in Playa Grande is known for tropical bliss and friendly ambiance. Back in 2002, owners Dave and Annie Corredor packed their Toyota 4-Runner with their dogs, Ripley and Jack Brown, and trekked south. While Costa Rica was their final destination all along, Playa Grande captured both their hearts and imaginations.

After taking the time to settle in to the community of Playa Grande, Dave and Annie purchased a beach-side hotel. The Corredor’s affectionately named the place after their furry companions hence calling it Rip Jack Inn.

It’s been more than 10 years since Dave and Annie have opened their doors, and they consider the hotel an extension of their home.  The hotel staff treats guests just like family, ensuring all visitors have a memorable vacation. Whether you choose a standard room or cozy bungalow, this Playa Grande hotel aims to please.

Today the Corredor’s, along with their bright-eyed daughter Maggie, extend the invitation to be part of the Rip Jack Inn family.  We are just steps away from Playa Grande’s main surf break, and we offer daily yoga classes in our beautiful shala.

If you love to surf, if you love to practice yoga, and if you love great food, you’ll feel right at home here.

Year after year, returning guests make their annual trip to this Playa Grande hotel, and new visitors discover what makes Rip Jack Inn the place to stay by the Pacific.

Pura Vida!

Tucked away in the garden is the Bungalow, and it’s our favorite room by far! The Bungalow has two queen-size beds in a room that is separated by French doors for a little privacy. The front room has a leather sofa that can be used as a third bed and a lazy boy recliner. The bathroom is brand new, complete with an open spa type shower. Let the smooth river rocks flooring gently massage your feet after a day at the beach.
