      About this trip

      Dive into your practice, drop into sick waves, and join a community to reset and rejuvenate. Bonnie Brazeau + Janine invite you to experience a beautiful new place, vibrant culture, and true adventure. 

      Roam with us to connect deeply to your practice and fellow retreat attendees, meet new people, and froth over one of the best breaks in Costa Rica. This retreat is centered around presence on and off the yoga mat. We encourage you to lean into experiencing life as it happens, not worrying about the past or looking too far into the future.  





       Playa Grande, also known as Salinas, is a small surf town with a consistently great wave. This area of the country is especially known for its sunsets, long stretches of golden beaches, and conserved land. The entire beach coast is protected and belongs to Las Baulas National Park leaving lots of natural beauty to explore, and baby sea turtles to observe!

      Just south of Playa Grande you'll find a popular tourist destination, Tamarindo. Packed with nightlife and more social things to do. If you're craving more hustle and bustle this is an easy day trip! Just north of Playa Grande you'll find an even quieter, and more secluded spot at Playa Ventanas. Venture up here for a smaller break, quieter day, or crystal clear snorkeling waters.

      We created this retreat to offer a calm and sacred space to ground down in your practice, but also have easy access to all of the beautiful things Costa Rica has to offer. From ziplining to surfing, Playa Grande's long stretches of beach offers something for everyone.


       Experience the authentic Costa Rican beach life away from busy tourist spots at a modern, bright, beautiful hotel just 5 minute walk from the beach. The good vibes range from friendly staff, hip music, a beautiful pool and garden, delicious meals made to order, and newly expanded to include a covered yoga shala to enjoy your practice in the tropical air.

      This was the trip of a lifetime. Great yoga, great friends, fun things to do. The staff and facility at Room to Roam was the best: friendly, clean, relaxing.

      It was a wonderful trip! Everyone involved was incredibly kind and welcoming. The food was always amazing and always smoothly accommodated for my gluten intolerance. The activities were all phenomenal from ziplining in the jungle canopy, to seeing natural waterfalls, to learning to surf (something I never imagined I'd be able to do), to hiking up Giant's Foot for a great view of the area, to the inspired environments for yoga, to one of the best massages of my life. I highly recommend to to anyone considering it!

      We had a great time in Costa Rica with Meagan and Bernie. Our location was beautifully designed, with awesome showers and an easy walk to the ocean. We enjoyed a morning workout followed by great food. I highly recommend the acai bowl! The location accommodated food allergies, including gluten, dairy, and nightshades. We are very impressed by Room to Roam's coordination and choice of location. This was our second trip with Room to Roam, and we really enjoyed it! Our favorite adventures were seeing Poza Los Coyotes and the Guanacaste coffee tour.

      We had a really great adventure in Costa Rica with Meagan and Bernie. The beaches were the best I've been to. So uncrowded and could walk forever. So many friendly people. The weather was great, with spectacular downpours, occasionally, and lasting a very short time. Unforgettable!

      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!
