Costa Rica's RipJack Inn hotel improves accessibility

The Hotel RipJack Inn in Costa Rica's Playa Grande recently announced that it has installed a wheelchair lift making it now fully compliant with the local rules and regulations on supporting disabled guests.

The lift installation, completed in March 2015, was installed to the second floor restaurant and has been recorded as the first wheelchair lift in Playa Grande.

Prior to the lift installation, the hotel had two wheelchair accessible rooms. In press release the hotel PR team explained:

"We are proud to be a fully compliant with Costa Rica's new rules and regulations regarding access for people with disabilities, we are unique in servicing our customers and are happy to be able to accommodate people of all abilities who choose to stay with us."

The hotel, named after the owners Dave and Annie Corredor's two dogs, has been in operation for over 10 years and is said to be the ideal resting place for holidaymakers who enjoy great food and yoga.

The Hotel RipJack Inn is also the ideal base for surfing enthusiasts on their holidays in Costa Rica located just a stone's throw away from Playa Grande's main surf break. Playa Grande is well known for its surfing experience and attracts surfers of varied skill levels from around the world.

The Hotel RipJack Inn has consistently earned positive reviews and has been awarded a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. One guest stated in his TripAdvisor review:

"Awesome every time! Dave and Annie and entire RipJack crew are a special group… The sunsets on the beach out front of the hotel are honestly the best I've ever seen… and the surfing is top notch."

Another guest summed up RipJack as:

"… a nice hotel in surfer's paradise with a great ambience and yet high quality."

Despite Costa Rica's reputation as the ideal holiday destination for surfers, hikers and general thrill seekers; holidaymakers requiring wheelchair access should not be put off. Several key attractions in Costa Rica have become more accessible in recent years thanks in a large part to Costa Rica's Equal Opportunities Law for Persons with Disabilities.

In 2013, Costa Rica hit a major milestone with the launch of Central America's very first universal access trail through the rainforest of the Carara National Park.
