Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Restaurants

Upstairs at the RipJack

  • 100 m south of park headquarters
  • Playa Grande
  • Seafood

Fodor's Review

There are rooms for rent and a yoga school downstairs, but most people come to chow down at this casual place a block from the beach, or party at the extensive bar, which occupies about a third of the restaurant. Portions are large so pace yourself, especially if you order the popular barbecue ribs with mac and cheese. On the seafood side, you can count on garlic shrimp, calamari, and seafood pasta. The salads are topped with healthy ingredients like chickpeas, avocado, and quinoa. Prices are on the high side but there's free Wi-Fi. There is also Sunday brunch in high season.
