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 high vibe experience with Jenna Ramsey (creator of Vibe Maker events) and Ginger Roots (Live Roots Reggae Band) where you will elevate your soul with wellness activities and outdoor adventure. Enjoy daily surf sessions with multiple break options or simply soak up the sun with serene tropical surroundings. 

Jenna will be leading yoga classes, breathwork/meditation sessions, a wellness workshop on Growth Mindset and offering optional 1:1 coaching sessions to focus on your personal wellness goals or steps to get closer to your life aspirations. Chase, Spencer, and Johnny from Ginger Roots will be feeding our souls and making us want to groove with live music all week, they will be playing live during yoga and all week on site at the hotel. 

We will adventure to rainforest waterfalls along with many other activities available based on your preferred choice. We will join together for a local community outreach to give our thanks back to the Tican’s for having us.  

Get ready to unwind in the simple luxury of this beautiful boutique hotel + pool with an on-site restaurant/bar.  This high vibes + wellness 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. 


Hike, jump, swim, and play in the beauty of nature and bright blue mineral waters of La Leona waterfall.  This adventurous day trip allows you to immerse yourself in a vibrant waterfall surrounded by the jungle.


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.


 Hello, we are Ginger Roots and the Protectors, and we have a mission to bring music instruments and school supplies to the local children of Nicaragua + Costa Rica. We are asking for donations to purchase recording equipment, instruments and needed school supplies. We will be taking all of the equipment down there ourselves in September, and our goal is to set up a music school for the children. In addition to monetary donations, we will also be doing a drive for unused instruments of any kind that you have laying around your house as well as leftover school supplies and art supplies. A little bit goes a long way... and we appreciate all of the support. For any more information and to get in contact with us about donating supplies feel free to message us @gingerroots_music on Instagram or through our website GingerRootsMusic.com

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.


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.

Such a great time. The room was comfortable with air conditioning and hot water. The food and staff were all fantastic. Highly recommend!

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!
By Meredith P for SURF + SKATE IN NICARAGUA WITH LORENZO on 13 Jun, 2022
Room to Roam was an amazing experience all around! Accommodations were clean and comfortable with operational A/C, fans, wi-fi, and running hot water! The common spaces were awesome, and the pool was always ready. All the staff on site were welcoming and delightful, and took care of guests' every request. The food was absolutely incredible! Everything on the menu was on point and they handled special requests with ease. In our small group we had a gluten-free carnivore, a gluten-free vegetarian, and a gluten-loving vegetarian. We each had enough options to never have to eat the same meal twice (though some found favorites and stuck to them). I endeavored to try as much as possible, and there wasn't a single dish that didn't completely deliver beyond expectation. The bartenders, spinning the fun music and videos, also spun excellent thirst-quenching drinks from smoothies to cocktails, delivered with a smile. Ashley's yoga and Kate's pilates sessions were just right, and the hour-long massage left me blissful and pain-free. The owners, Chance and Kate, took on all the worries to make sure our experience went smooth - including adjusting rooming arrangements, transportation, border crossings, and covid-testing. And their dogs, Iris and Tarzan, were delightful and wonderful companions for walks and naps. But the one staff member deserving the biggest SHOUTOUT was our Surf Guide, Ramone. Not only did he gently coax us out in all kinds of conditions, but he was attentive to us in the water and always made sure we were in the optimal spot for catching waves. He helped me tremendously with timing and technique, calling me into waves, and instilling my confidence in bigger waves, and in less than optimal conditions. I am grateful for the breakthroughs that came from surfing with both Ramone and our host, Lorenzo (whom I credit for getting to my feet on the shortest board yet!). Our group was quite small (5 guests at the start and then just 3 for the rest of the week), so it was like having the "resort" to ourselves with a high staff to guest ratio. That said, I still think a larger group would not feel any less personally cared for. You really feel like you are visiting friends: fresh home-cooked meals, no need for locked doors, wi-fi connectivity, laundry service, and pet dogs. It's a home away from home, plus plenty of ROOM TO ROAM.
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!

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!
