About this trip

These last few years have left many of us with a difficult feeling of "stuckness", noticing our energies and inspirations muted, deflated, and stagnant.  Even as certain things return to function, our inner worlds haven't yet had the chance to truly recalibrate to a level that fosters authentic forward movement.

This retreat is specifically designed to redefine our lives, find our creative potential, and rediscover the inner vitality that propels us forward both within our thoughts + within our lives.  Through adventure, movement, intention setting, and reconnection to the magic of nature, this retreat will redefine everything and recalibrate you back to your highest vibration.

Loretta Eizaguirre + Cat Stahl bring certified pilates and yoga instruction together with their vibrant + dynamic style to guide you through a life-changing experience off the beaten path to see the raw, untouched Nicaraguan beaches.  Enjoy daily movement including yoga, pilates, + strength training and reset your system with intention setting, oracle card readings, breathwork, and pure FUN + ADVENTURE amidst a crew of others all seeking the same positive shift.

This all-inclusive package gives you the support and guidance to get to Nicaragua easily where you can explore and unwind along the road less traveled.  We coordinate and include your roundtrip transportation between airport and our hotel, offer amazing local, fresh, and delicious meals, and keep you comfortable with A/C, hot showers, and Wifi in our 4-star beachside boutique hotel complete with a sparkling pool, on site restaurant + bar, and beautiful Grand Palapa movement space.

Our beachside boutique hotel is immersed in the center of a beachy fishing village along the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua.  Meet friendly locals, walk empty beaches, and see pigs, cows, and goats roaming the streets.  It's that kinda the beaten path and surrounded by natural beauty and a slower way of living....good for the soul.  


Our 14-room boutique hotel is equipped with a sparkling pool,A/C, hot showers, and Wifi in every room.  You’ll be able to enjoy travel in a a way that preserves comfortable accommodations without losing the rustic touch of travelling off the beaten path to enjoy what makes Playa Gigante unique.  

We have an all-weather multi-use wellness space that is perfect for yoga/movement, breathwork sessions, or a game of pickleball or pool. It is a simple oasis in the heart of town with friendly staff, extremely comfortable rooms, and an amazing overall vibe that will shift your perspective on the beauty of Nicaragua that often goes unnoticed or misunderstood.


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.

We also include two dinners in the local community where we Roam and experience more local businesses that keep this magical community thriving.


 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 Loretta Eizaguirre

Loretta is a Certified Pilates + Yoga instructor with over 10 years of professional training.

I was introduced to yoga 20+ years ago and knew from the start that it was going to be a part of my life.  It touched my heart and soul, taught me how to breathe through the difficult times that life can throw.  I knew that I had to share my love of yoga with the community and world.  

I completed my 200 hour training in 2012.  I have furthered my training in Restorative, Yin, Meditation, Pranayama, and Kundalini.  

In 2019, my father was diagnosed with kidney cancer.  During this time, I realized that moving and breathing were essential to staying grounded and present.  This is when I completed my Reformer Pilates training and Cancer Exercise certification.  My goal has always been to make the practice of movement (physical, spiritual and mental) accessible to every BODY and everybody.  

Working full time as an independent Aesthetician.  For fun you will find me in the hills hiking with the love of my life, Lasai (my man dog)

About Cat Stahl

Cat Stahl is a certified Pilates + fitness instructor who teaches at  Infinity Fitness Studios,  a premier fitness + Pilates studio in Reno, NV.

I am a fun-loving, high energy, and free-spirited person. Being in nature and of nature (hiking, biking, camping, walking, paddling, etc), fitness training, and Pilates are my saving grace.

I am a journalist by education ( for years I made my living writing on fashion, beauty, shopping, and lifestyle for both newspapers and magazines.)

I am an artist and paint large scale florals, hearts, and feminine buddhas with golden halo’s.

Exercise, and self-care right my mind and my body. To me, they are as essential as breathing air.

I am blessed, privileged, and honored to make a living teaching pilates, and fitness.

Pilates challenges me to bring my best, and be my best. It reminds me to slow down, center, focus, be attentive, of intention, and breathe.

My classes go with the flow but we work hard. Nothing is cast in stone, I read my audience and navigate accordingly. I am very adaptable.

I love exercise that makes us think, reach, stretch, and strive. I love the transformation (mentally and physical) that comes with the advent of a dedicated, consistent practice.

I love when someone thinks they can’t, and then realizes they can.

With me you can expect a lot of leg, arm, balance, and core work. I believe in moving slowly and purposefully. I incorporate yoga, weights, strength training, and breathing into my classes and feel strongly about devoting the last few moments of class to unstructured quiet time. It is important to relax, un-wind, and reflect.

Lastly, I love possibility, and potential. I see it in every

thing, and in every body.

What an unbelievable experience! I fell in love with the beauty of the land and the community. Room to Roam does an excellent job coordinating every detail, so you don't have to worry about anything. And I can't say enough about the staff. The staff are like a close family, genuinely friendly and so helpful! This retreat experience was like none other. There were plenty of activities to choose from, making it a unique "choose your own adventure" experience. I'll definitely be back in the future.

Can’t say enough good things about Room to Roam and the whole staff in Nicaragua. The food is next level, the staff is so warm and friendly, I was instantly at home. They guided me through the travel process and I felt completely safe as I traveled somewhere new. The surfing was incredible and there is just some kind of magic down there! I’ll be back!

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!
