About this trip

 Pura Vida! means “simple life” or “pure life”, but here in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is a way of life. Costa Ricans —Ticos— say Pura Vida to say hello, goodbye, everything’s great, everything’s cool. Costa Rica has repeatedly been named one of the happiest countries in the world, and we need more of that! 

Join Nicole Hansult in another slice of paradise to enjoy a week of fun, relaxation, health, adventure ,connection, and education on how to live a better, healthier life FOR YOU! 

Nicole will guide you to optimize your health and wellness with individual support in nutrition, corrective exercise, stress management, positive mindset, and tools to have the balanced, healthy, active life you deserve.     

This week isn't about being restrictive or dogmatic about your health.  This week is about tapping into your own intuitive knowledge and learning how to live and enjoy life in a balanced way...allowing yourself to color outside the lines and feel free and joyful on vacation while also supporting your body's overall health, wellness, and alignment.  Savor this epic week and return home with useful skills and resources to keep on living well.


This modern-style boutique hotel is less than a 5 minute stroll to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, featuring miles of unspoiled white sand along one of the largest sea turtle protected reserves in the world. 

Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable accommodations while still experiencing a feeling of being unplugged and tucked away in this charming stretch of the coast.


We have a full-service restaurant + bar to prepare meals and beverages during this retreat. Enjoy fresh, locally-sourced ingredients with delicious options for all dietary needs and preferences.  Experience delicious tropical fruits, fresh caught fish, local produce, and a thoughtfully crafted menu to keep you satisfied.


Playa Grande is a beautiful, uncrowded beach community that lies just north of Tamarindo along the Pacific coast of Northern Costa Rica. It has a great laid-back vibe and retains the " off the beaten path" feel that Room to Roam seeks. 

 In addition to one of the most consistent year round surf breaks in Costa Rica, Playa Grande is one of the largest turtle nesting grounds in the world. 


A day trip to explore one of the many beautiful waterfall adventures that Costa Rica has to offer.  Enjoy hiking around and catching the beautiful natural scenery, swiming in the clear waters, and reconnecting to the healing elements of nature.


Nicole Hansult brings over 20 years of experience, training, and certifications in guiding others to use a holistic approach to feel + live their best.  She is a Certified Physical Therapist, Master Health + Life Coach, and overall inspirational, authentic, powerhouse woman.  


" I show busy men and women how to break free from their old self-defeating habits 

and develop new sustainable behaviors that fuel and energize them through the use of empowering thoughts, nutritious foods and strengthening movement to achieve long lasting results in their life." --Nicole

This trip was such a blast! Room to Roam set us up in Hotel Onda, which had such a cool, upscale hostel/boutique hotel vibe! The staff were super friendly and our excursions were amazing. I especially love the waterfall excursion and learning to surf with Javi my surf instructor! Kate and Olivia were so hospitable and always checking on us to make sure things were going well or if we needed anything. I'd definitely do this again!

Room to Roam made my trip to Costa Rica one that I will never forget. Everything from the planned experiences to the food was SO well put together that it instantly made me feel at ease and on vacation, which doesn't always happen when I visit new places for the first time! Huge thank you to the R2R staff who made my stay even more enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

This trip was magical. Kate was incredible from the moment we signed up, quickly responding to all of my questions and putting my mind at ease. I hadn't left the states in 22 years and was a bit nervous. Travel to the hotel was seamless and the hotel was perfection. It was so easy to pop from the pool, to my room, to the kitchen and bar and back. Everything was so convenient. I think my wristband/key was one of my favorite conveniences ever! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Food was available whenever I was hungry and it was delicious! The staff could not have been more accommodating. Olivia arranged for travel, adventures, excursions and even joined us for an amazing dinner. Javi, the surf instructor, helped me stand up on my first try ever. And I'm 50! Julia and Rene tended the bar and catered to my every whim and Juan Pablo the chef made my mouth water every time. The cleaning staff kept the pool and grounds spotless and the entire staff was incredibly friendly. Room to Roam left no stone unturned. I was visiting on a "work" adventure, but nothing ever felt like work! Kate and Chance made sure we had opportunities to enjoy waterfalls, surfing, water slides, horseback riding, special shopping markets, a rodeo, zip lining and hot springs. I truly felt like they wanted my coworkers and I to experience a trip we'd always remember. Mission accomplished. I very much hope to enjoy another adventure at their Nicaragua location and would return to the Costa Rica location in a heartbeat. Top Notch all the way!

If you are on the fence about booking... THIS IS YOUR SIGN: Don't hesitate and book your retreat asap! I just got back from a Work Retreat hosted by Room to Roam at Hotel Onda in Costa Rica and I genuinely cannot speak highly enough about my experience. In the first day and a half our Team got to see 1) A female black turtle (one of the largest in the world) give birth 2) Repel into waterfalls and jump into water caves at the LeLeona Waterfall tour 3) Attend a traditional bull riding with the locals and even... get in the pen! Later on in the week we rode horses, surfed, free dove, zip lined, went tubing, to the hot springs, and explored Tamarindo. When we weren't off adventuring, Hotel Onda was a cozy, comfy safe space for us to chill. We spent countless hours poolside and lounging in our private, air conditioned rooms and playing with the cute local pups who visited us daily. Just an FYI that the pictures don't do hotel Onda justice as it's far more beautiful in-person! In addition to the gorgeous hotel, the staff at Hotel Onda was beyond accommodating and friendly. Olivia, the Hotel Manager, always made sure we were taken care of and checked-in on us often (without being overbearing) to see how we were doing. Finally, the FOOD! DEAR GOD! I think one of the biggest benefits of booking our Retreat was the inclusion of all of our food at the hotel. I have severe food allergies and am often very concerned about eating when I travel; however, our Chef and his staff not only made me meals that I could eat but meals that I couldn't wait for. I HIGHLY recommend the vegan tacos and chia parfait but truly, anything you get there is going to be delicious! Kate, the Owner of Room to Roam, genuinely couldn't have done a better job ensuring our safety and happiness during our stay. Our Team now has memories of a lifetime and I can't wait until our next Retreat to experience more room to roam!

I can't speak highly enough about our experience with Room to Roam. My work team and I went on a week long retreat, and left with memories that will last a lifetime and more bonded than ever before. Kate was so attentive to everyone and everything; flight details, dietary restrictions, activity recommendations and scheduling, COVID requirements, and more. During our stay, the team accomplished SO much! Waterfall hikes, surf lessons, horseback riding, turtle sighting, shopping at local markets, swimming, tanning, free-diving, zip-lining, relaxing at natural hot springs, AND even got some work done pool-side. The choice of location was also 10/10. Quaint enough to get some relaxation time, close enough to the beach to walk at your convenience, and not a far drive from the bigger cities. I couldn't be happier with the experience as a whole, and would absolutely recommend Room to Roam as well as utilize their services again in the future. THANK YOU KATE!
