Imagine spending delightful days enveloped by jungle sounds while nurturing your heart, body, and soul with healthy meals, beach-time, yoga, and expressive arts.

Picture starting your mornings with yoga and movement in a beautiful yoga shala to help you feel energized and ready for each day.

Then, after a fresh yummy breakfast, you learn how to use spontaneous painting, writing, and movement to tap into a surprisingly rich, creative inner world, where you will gain insights and aha moments for personal growth and enrichment.

Sun-soaked afternoons offer a mix of possibilities from which to choose: from chilling poolside to getting a massage, to joining a Zumba class, to signing up for a surf lesson, to jumping back into the studio for more art-making.

Evenings are for celebrating the gorgeous sunsets and local culture of the Guanacaste region by taking a boat tour, hanging on the beach, or heading in town for live music, fun people, dancing, and nightlife.

Venue Highlights

Founded in the spirit of adventure, RipJack Inn in Playa Grande is known for tropical bliss and friendly ambiance. Back in 2002, owners 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.

It’s been more than 15 years since Dave, Annie and Luli have opened their doors and they now have 21 rooms, a large restaurant, two swimming pools and two yoga studios. 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.

The Yoga Shala
A peaceful sanctuary for health and wellbeing. Our yoga space is made of beautiful teak wood, enclosed by tall glass windows and covered by a majestic palapa roof. From the moment you enter the studio amidst the palms and bamboo gardens, you will feel calm and at ease.

Leatherback Turtles in Playa Grande
Playa Grande, Costa Rica is home to Las Baulas National Marine Park. The Leatherback turtle is the oldest living reptile. Leatherback turtles are also the largest of their species weighing in at up to 2,000 pounds! Unlike other turtles, the Leatherback Turtles have a soft shell. The best opportunity to see a Leatherback Turtle will be at high tide when the moon is full.
