Our charming boutique hotel embodies the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern comfort, offering a haven of relaxation just steps away from the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean and protected Leatherback sea turtle reserve. 


Wake up to the soothing sound of waves and the scent of tropical blooms in our cozy and beautifully appointed rooms. Enjoy locally inspired cuisine at our beachfront restaurant, where the ocean views are as delightful as the flavors.  Move your body in one of the on-property studios, a mix of open-air treetops and glass-enclosed A/C spaces.

La Leona Waterfall Adventure

Embark on an exhilarating adventure deep within the heart of Costa Rica's lush rainforests with the La Leona Waterfall expedition. As you hike through dense, emerald-green jungles teeming with exotic wildlife, the anticipation builds with every step. The journey leads to a hidden gem, the La Leona Waterfall, where nature's beauty reveals itself in a spectacular display of cascading water surrounded by vibrant flora. Immerse yourself in the crystal-clear pools beneath the falls, offering a refreshing oasis amidst the tropical heat. This adventure is not just a physical feat but a spiritual connection with the pristine wilderness, making it a truly unforgettable and transformative experience. 

Estuary Kayak or Beach Snorkel Adventure

 Choose your own adventure: the Booty Luv® Beach Retreat includes your choice of these amazing activities! 


Kayaking in the Tamarindo Estuary is an immersive experience that promises an unforgettable connection with nature's beauty and a deep appreciation for Costa Rica's biodiversity. Glide through calm waters under the shade of mangrove trees, their twisted roots creating a labyrinth of hidden wonders. As you paddle, keen eyes will spot a diverse array of wildlife, from playful howler monkeys swinging through the branches to vibrant tropical birds soaring above. The mangroves serve as a nursery for countless marine species, making it common to encounter baby crocodiles and lazy iguanas sunbathing on the branches. The tranquility of the estuary is only interrupted by the occasional splash of a jumping fish. 


OR


Snorkeling in Playa Carbon is a captivating exploration of an underwater paradise. Immerse yourself in the crystal-clear waters to discover a vibrant world beneath the surface. Encounters with an array of marine life, from colorful tropical fish to graceful sea turtles, create a sense of wonder and awe.

Tamarindo Night Market

This trip was a great experience, accommodations were fantastic and restaurant was very accommodating and great food. Everything was well organized and we received top notch services! Thanks Kate!
By Kimberley H for Reconnect to Yourself Retreat 2024 on Apr 22, 2024
Playa Grande is such a cute little surf town! Our hotel was comfortable, the food in the restaurant was good, the people were friendly and helpful, the grounds were beautiful, and it was a good value for the investment. I especially loved the short path to the beach. Kate at We Travel coordianted everything so well and Javi was our knowledgable, personal guide on every excursion. Chrissy was our patient, calming, excellent yoga and meditaion instructor. They were all amazing! I had a surfing lesson with Jossie, who had the patience of a saint. It was so much fun! I would travel with this group again in a second.

I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience with Kate, Ashley, Lorenzo and the whole staff at Room to Roam! This trip was truly magical. I was a little nervous to travel for the first time since COVID. Kate took such great care ushering me in to Nicaragua. I was very stressed at home prior to leaving and Kate kept taking things off my plate as I prepared to leave. Upon arrival we were greeted so warmly by the staff. I was instantly relaxed. Marco’s truly does make the BEST passion fruit margarita on the planet! My intention was surf and boy did I fall back in love with surfing, but I am really walking away with so much more- a complete reboot for my body, mind and soul! I’ll be back again soon! PS the food is out of the this world! Every single meal…. Mouth watering!
