The Community of El 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.

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 really enjoyed my stay during the retreat. Kate and her crew are an amazing bunch. They made my stay feel like I was hanging out with old friends. The food was amazing as well. 🙂

The Room to Roam Movement and Mindset wellness retreat totally rejuvenated me. Kate provides detailed instructions, making it easy for novice travelers to off-the-beaten-path destinations. The planned activities are designed to be restorative, fun and challenging enough to grow; and yet, the days are flexible, so if you want to hang by the pool then do it. As someone with significant food challenges, the team makes every-successful-effort to accommodate, providing scrumptious choices. The rooms are comfortable, although most of the time is spent in the common area. The cultural immersion gives back to the local community and expands your horizons. I can't wait to go to the next destination!

This trip was absolutely epic! The staff and accommodations at Room to Roam were fantastic. Within hours they feel like a second family and you want it to be your second home.. They truly go above and beyond to make sure everyone is having the perfect experience and are always taken care of. The little surf town of Playa Gigabte is pure magic… the people, animals, adventures, and natural beauty of this land are unmatched. It is magnificent. I relaxed, partied, hiked to the top of cliffs, zip lined, did yoga, swam in the ocean, rode horseback on the beach, walked in the jungle, swam in a natural mineral pool… but maybe most importantly made new friends that I’ll have forever. Room to Roam has curated something incredibly special. I highly recommend booking an experience of some sort ….for every person of any age and any skill level. There is truly something for everyone. I cannot wait to return. ❤️

This was such a great experience! There were six of us from San Diego in our group. But that didn’t matter there were others visiting from other areas in California. We had such a good time. The day trips in the van and on pangas to visit different surf spots were amazing. It was so great to be able to come back and eat amazing food! Room to roam really takes care of all the details. We are fans of this place!
