About this trip

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

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.

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.


This trip was such a blast! Room to Roam set us up in Hotel Onda, which had such a cool, upscale hostel/boutique hotel vibe! The staff were super friendly and our excursions were amazing. I especially love the waterfall excursion and learning to surf with Javi my surf instructor! Kate and Olivia were so hospitable and always checking on us to make sure things were going well or if we needed anything. I'd definitely do this again!

Room to Roam made my trip to Costa Rica one that I will never forget. Everything from the planned experiences to the food was SO well put together that it instantly made me feel at ease and on vacation, which doesn't always happen when I visit new places for the first time! Huge thank you to the R2R staff who made my stay even more enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

This trip was magical. Kate was incredible from the moment we signed up, quickly responding to all of my questions and putting my mind at ease. I hadn't left the states in 22 years and was a bit nervous. Travel to the hotel was seamless and the hotel was perfection. It was so easy to pop from the pool, to my room, to the kitchen and bar and back. Everything was so convenient. I think my wristband/key was one of my favorite conveniences ever! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Food was available whenever I was hungry and it was delicious! The staff could not have been more accommodating. Olivia arranged for travel, adventures, excursions and even joined us for an amazing dinner. Javi, the surf instructor, helped me stand up on my first try ever. And I'm 50! Julia and Rene tended the bar and catered to my every whim and Juan Pablo the chef made my mouth water every time. The cleaning staff kept the pool and grounds spotless and the entire staff was incredibly friendly. Room to Roam left no stone unturned. I was visiting on a "work" adventure, but nothing ever felt like work! Kate and Chance made sure we had opportunities to enjoy waterfalls, surfing, water slides, horseback riding, special shopping markets, a rodeo, zip lining and hot springs. I truly felt like they wanted my coworkers and I to experience a trip we'd always remember. Mission accomplished. I very much hope to enjoy another adventure at their Nicaragua location and would return to the Costa Rica location in a heartbeat. Top Notch all the way!

If you are on the fence about booking... THIS IS YOUR SIGN: Don't hesitate and book your retreat asap! I just got back from a Work Retreat hosted by Room to Roam at Hotel Onda in Costa Rica and I genuinely cannot speak highly enough about my experience. In the first day and a half our Team got to see 1) A female black turtle (one of the largest in the world) give birth 2) Repel into waterfalls and jump into water caves at the LeLeona Waterfall tour 3) Attend a traditional bull riding with the locals and even... get in the pen! Later on in the week we rode horses, surfed, free dove, zip lined, went tubing, to the hot springs, and explored Tamarindo. When we weren't off adventuring, Hotel Onda was a cozy, comfy safe space for us to chill. We spent countless hours poolside and lounging in our private, air conditioned rooms and playing with the cute local pups who visited us daily. Just an FYI that the pictures don't do hotel Onda justice as it's far more beautiful in-person! In addition to the gorgeous hotel, the staff at Hotel Onda was beyond accommodating and friendly. Olivia, the Hotel Manager, always made sure we were taken care of and checked-in on us often (without being overbearing) to see how we were doing. Finally, the FOOD! DEAR GOD! I think one of the biggest benefits of booking our Retreat was the inclusion of all of our food at the hotel. I have severe food allergies and am often very concerned about eating when I travel; however, our Chef and his staff not only made me meals that I could eat but meals that I couldn't wait for. I HIGHLY recommend the vegan tacos and chia parfait but truly, anything you get there is going to be delicious! Kate, the Owner of Room to Roam, genuinely couldn't have done a better job ensuring our safety and happiness during our stay. Our Team now has memories of a lifetime and I can't wait until our next Retreat to experience more room to roam!

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!
