Five Reasons Why the RipJack Inn is an Incredible Wedding Venue

Are you dreaming of a destination wedding in Costa Rica? While there are certainly a lot of different places and venues to choose from, the RipJack Inn might just be your perfect wedding venue. This charming beachfront boutique hotel has become a popular wedding destination over the past few years, and we think we have a strong case as to why! We LOVE love! And, would love to help you plan and put on the wedding you’ve long been dreaming about with the one you love the most. 

Here are five reasons why the RipJack Inn is an incredible wedding venue, and why you should consider getting married here. 


The RipJack Inn is located directly across from the beach in the beautiful town of Playa Grande. The only time the beach is actually busy is when the tide is mid to high, and when there is swell in the water, which is ideal for surfing. But even the surf crowd is contained to just a few areas along the very expansive stretch of sand and sea. Unlike Tamarindo, which is busy all the time and everywhere, a beach wedding in Playa Grande can be very private. 


The RipJack Inn can be rented entirely out for your wedding. Between the restaurant and bar, and the downstairs pool and patio area, we can help you orchestrate the best celebration of your life! If you want an intimate setting for your cocktail hour, dinner, and party, the RipJack is really a special place to host it all. The ambiance here is warm and welcoming and inspiring of a grand celebration.
