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 us for a magical escape to Playa Grande and get ready for unwinding in the simple luxury of this beautiful boutique hotel + pool with an on-site restaurant/bar.  This exclusive kickoff week is an incredibly priced package that gets you everything you need to score a tropical getaway in beautiful Playa Grande, located just a quick 1hr ride from Liberia airport (LIR).


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. 


This package includes the costs for your choice of either a surf-focused day trip to take a boat to surf the iconic break Witch's Rock, OR a day to hike, explore, and swim in the beautiful Llanos de Cortes Waterfall.


Playa Grande is fortunately a huge stretch of beach break options with some of the most consistent surf in Costa Rica.  This trip will offer surfing options for all levels, also including options to surf:

Tamarindo a great + popular beginner spot

Playa Negra Intermediate and above level right hand break.

Playa Avellanas Friendly, open beach break stretch

Roca Bruja "Witch's Rock"...a killer break accessible only by boat.

Room to Roam

Room to Roam is an all-inclusive retreat service provider that streamlines the retreat leading process and connects people to amazing experiences off the beaten path. Currently with locations in Southern Nicaragua + Northern Costa Rica.


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!

Had one of the most incredible weeks of my life with Room to Roam! Kate was beyond helpful from start to finish. She helped with every aspect of the trip to make it as easy as possible for our entire group. The accommodations, the food, the staff, all amazing! We had 10 people and each one of us loved the experience. We plan to make this a yearly event and will use Room to Roam every single time. Thank you so much Kate and Chance!

The Room to Roam Surf & Yoga retreat exceeded all of my expectations. As first time in Nicaragua – Playa Gigante, I so appreciated the structure and support Room to Roam offered and absolutely loved being immersed in the local experience of Playa Gigante. Both the surfing and the yoga were an amazing physical challenge but personally tailored to each person in our group. My room was perfect - very clean and comfortable and the gardens and grounds within Room to Roam are gorgeous. I found the retreat a perfect mix of relaxation and activity. The food, drinks and staff at Room to Roam, was a highlight as well. I left with new friends, open minds and full hearts! So grateful to have had this experience and highly recommend it. I plan to return very soon!. Kate, Ashley, Layna, Hanna and all the Room to Roam staff are truly a group of exceptional persons and professionals… they know what they are doing!!! Big Thank you!
