About this trip

This women's only retreat is about connection, healing, and rejuvenation....guided by powerful healers Karen + Kelly Winter, whose lives' work is in creating safe spaces and guiding others to use therapeutic tools that support inner alignment and peace.

Join us September 19-25th, 2022 for a magical escape to Playa Grande and explore your deepest healing with the use of transformational breathwork , RASHA sessions, Bach Flower remedies+ EFT techniques to restore peace + harmony within in a completely safe + therapeutic way.  Immerse yourself in the Pura Vida way of life at our boutique hotel just steps from the beach.  This amazing opportunity is all just a short flight away, and yet miles away from ordinary.


 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 and one of the world's largest sea turtle reserves.

Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy the comforts of 4-star accommodations while still experiencing a feeling of being unplugged and tucked away in this charming stretch of the Pacific coast of Northern Costa Rica.


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. 


 RASHA uses scalar wave, crystalline sound, Rife frequencies and plasma to clear distortions in the morphogenic field. Your field gets distorted from emotional and geopathic stress, medications, chemicals in food/air, as well as drug and alcohol use. RAHSA puts your body and brain into non-resistant states of energy allowing them to return to homeostasis. The base 12 resonant frequency soothes your autonomic nervous system by harmonizing your left and right brain hemispheres resulting in stress relief and transmutation of negative habitual mental patterns. 


 Bach flower essences are homeopathically prepared from the blooms of plants bushes and trees. They are energetic remedies that work to stimulate your vital life force. These remedies work on every level to permanently heal instead of mask symptoms. The remedies flood your body with beautiful vibrations of your highest nature. These are completely safe, non-toxic and have no side effects. 


Emotional freedom technique is used to manage tension in the body and worry in the mind.

The underlying principle of EFT is that all emotions and thoughts are forms of energy. This energy, whether positive or negative, has very real physical manifestations that affect all functions of the body.

While the human body possesses a natural healing potential, stress and emotional problems can stand in the way. This is where emotional freedom technique comes in.

People who experience benefits from practicing tapping techniques find that they help clear their mind, focus their attention on the present moment (much like meditation does) and improve their attitude.

One of the best things about EFT is that it can be done anywhere, at any time, quickly and without the use of any equipment, medications or supplements.

Emotional freedom technique is a self-help technique that involves tapping near the end points of “energy meridians” located around the body. The tapping process is done in order to reduce physical tension and promote a deeper mind-body connection.

This technique goes by a few different names, including emotional freedom technique, EFT tapping therapy or simply tapping.

According to the EFT Universal Website, “EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals.” These include the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the American Psychological Association journals Psychotherapy: Theory, Research, Practice, Training and Review of General Psychology.


 Transformational Breathing is a self-empowering and dynamically powerful healing process that utilizes a high vibrational energy force created by a specific breathing pattern. The three levels of transformational breathing will allow you to breathe better, have more energy, feel more peaceful and ultimately attain higher levels of consciousness. Learn how to use your breath to access your electromagnetic field at the cellular level and create permanent healing and transformation. The first level will open and expand your breathing so that you have more energy and support for your body’s natural healing abilities. The second level works on healing traumas and negativity in your subconscious mind such as unexpressed emotions, negative beliefs, old tapes and past memories. The first two levels enable you to utilize the third level of breath work which is consciously connecting with our higher aspects of conscious reality and self.

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.


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!
By Irene K for PURA VIDA! Room to Roam Expands to Costa Rica! on 17 May, 2022
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!
