About this trip

PRITHVI is Sanskrit for Earth.


The Earth Element shows up as the solid foundation in our lives. To help us remain stable in times of transitions. To remember that personal care is how we remain steady in self.

This is the perfect retreat for nature enthusiasts. Sprinkled through the week will be different hiking destinations to disconnect and be one with natural surrounding beauty. From the local hike at the end of the playa, to Mombacho that is a rich jungle setting with a coffee plantation, to Ometepe and hiking to the base of a volcano to experience a waterfall that somehow always seems to have the right lighting for a rainbow to be reflected onto the rocks.

Other activities of the week include daily yoga flows, eating out to support local businesses, cold plunge to rejuvenate, optional horseback riding, beach bonfire, connecting and laughing with the community, and so much more. You'll just have to come out and experience the magic of this truly beautiful country for yourself.

OUR SPACE + HOTEL

 Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable accommodations without losing the rustic touch that makes Gigante unique and travel so meaningful. 


Yoga + healing sessions will be held between a tropical open space underneath our newly built grand palapa and a cliffside ocean view shala overlooking the bay just south of Playa Gigante.


There will be plenty of time to relax and unwind so feel free to take a moment to relax in one of our day beds or hammock, and appreciate the blue skies

FEATURED HIKE: MOMBACHO

Notably one of Nicaragua's most famous volcanoes, Mombacho is located just outside of Granada. In less than a 2 hr drive from the hotel, you'll find yourself immersed in hiking through cloud forests. After arriving to the nature reserve, the trip begins riding up steep side of the volcano with a locally provided shuttle (which is an adventure in itself). Once you arrive to the end of the road, there is a center that shows all the different options available. There are several different hikes to choose from, ranging in difficulty and duration, or even the option to do a coffee plantation tour if that is more your speed.

FEATURED HIKE: SAN RAMON WATERFALL

La Isla de Ometepe: A freshwater volcano island infused with wonder, magic, and folklore. The day starts traveling by ferry across Lake Nicaragua from the port town of San Jorge to arrive to the islands busiest town, Moyogalpa.  A 3-4 hour roundtrip hike to the majestic San Ramon Waterfall will challenge your legs and amaze your eyes! The hike itself is a steady moderate climb with the last 20 min being a bit more difficult. Lunch will be pizza at the base of the waterfall: a true hikers trash dream come true meal. 

ABOUT THE YOGA

To have our body feeling ready and grounded to be with nature, the daily yoga will be gentle and cater to where we work the body most when spending our day in full stride. These yoga sessions include mudras, meditation, journaling, and somatic healing techniques to have the nervous system feeling steady and stable as well.


AND the week starts off with a Virgo Full Moon! Talk about coming in with the strong, vibrant, and powerful Earth Energies!

OUR FOOD

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.

THE COMMUNITY OF PLAYA GIGANTE

 A colorful fishing village off the beaten path, El Gigante is located just over an hour north of San Juan Del Sur on Nicaragua's beautiful Pacific Coast. The town is aptly named “big foot” when translated from Spanish to describe the gentle green foothills that meet the ocean with such ease. A town filled with untouched beaches, roaming farm animals, and dirt pathways; you’ll quickly remember the importance of slowing down and to embrace living simply.  


The lifestyle and culture here very much embodies the phrase “Take it Easy”. Arriving here feels like taking one long exhale and a chance to just be. 

ABOUT ASHLEY TUREVON

A Texas native, spending the last 3 years abroad in Central America in serendipitous travels, and now calling Nicaragua home, Ashley found yoga as a senior in high school, and has been teaching for the past 6 years. She is Vinyasa 200 RYT certified with additional education such as Energetic Anatomy, Bhakti (devotional storytelling), and Foundations of Trauma Therapy. All of these trainings combined leave her teachings stylized as mindful movement from the heart and a poetic storytelling for the body. She believes in living fearlessly and compassionately, and gives credit to yoga for helping to continue to lead her on the right intuitive path.

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!

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!
