A surfers and turtle watchers paradise
The Playa Grande (Big Beach) gives you an idea why this country is called Costa Rica (Rich Coast). Here you'll find three miles of nearly untouched sandy beaches within the Baula National Park that protects the large, up to 500kg, endangered Leatherback Turtles.
This surfer's paradise is only steps away from the Rip Jack Inn, where you can take your pick of brakes. Not far further north you'll discover the ultra-secluded Playa Ventana and the black sand beach of Playa Carbón.
Crossing an estuary appears the tourist town called Playa Tamarindo with a multitude of restaurants, shops, bars, discos and of course more surf.
On the second floor of the main building of Rip Jack Inn you'll have a panoramic ocean view, while enjoying some of the finest cuisine in all of Costa Rica. Take advantage of the onsite yoga, massage and surf lessons, or a multitude of activities including sailing, golfing, diving, SCUBA diving and of course don't forget some good old-fashioned relaxing.
