Bodhi Surf & Yoga Camp ~ Costa Rica – Uvita


Whales Tail Uvita, Costa-Rica


Welcome to Bodhi Surf School, a full service yoga and surf camp that specializes in providing one-of-a-kind vacation experiences. We are located in Bahia Ballena – Uvita in the south Pacific of Costa Rica, a gorgeous and still pristine region where you are likely to see animals in their natural habitat and be filled with awe at the beauty that this country is so famous for. Bahia Ballena is a small, authentic “Tico” coastal community (just 15-minutes south of Dominical), and one of the few that remain.


Our goal here at Bodhi Surf is to ensure that you have a wonderful, relaxing, and enlightening vacation in Costa Rica. So whether we surf and/or do yoga with you, help you get acquainted with this special community, or aid you in organizing your entire Costa Rica surfing vacation, Bodhi Surf Camp is determined to provide the highest quality of service at every step.

More Than Just A Surf Camp

Our names are Travis, Pilar & Maya, and Gibran & Adrianne, and we are the founders of Bodhi Surf. We are a diverse and dynamic group of individuals who all bring something to the company; we are passionate about what we do and love spreading our “stoke” on to those we meet. We formed this company to be a bridge: between our clients and their physical goals, between travelers and a lesser-known part of Costa Rica; between those who are looking to learn and use their skills and knowledge to better the world and a community that is open to doing the same.

Visiting Bahia Ballena and spending some time with the Bodhi Surf members, you will notice that we strive to be more than just a surf camp that provides lodging, yoga classessurf lessons, and stand-up paddle (SUP) tours — we aim to be a sustainable business. We cater to individuals, couples, families, and student groups; moreover, we provide holistic travel and voluntourism opportunities for those who want to go the extra mile and make their time in Uvita, Costa Rica as informative as it is unforgettable.


Holistic Yoga and Surf Vacation


This yoga and surf vacation is the truest reflection of our company: it as if everything we loved, believed in, and wanted to share with others was all combined –creating the pinnacle of Bodhi Surf. Envision yourself arriving in the picturesque Bahia Ballena, Costa Rica, to spend a week learning to ride a piece of shaped foam on the world’s largest ocean, aka surfing in the Pacific Ocean, while also mastering the ancient technique of connection, self-reflection, and of course physical movement, aka yoga. At the end of the week there is no question that you will feel refreshed, physically stronger, and generally more stoked on LIFE!


Our Holistic Yoga & Surf vacation package provides a grounded week of yoga and surfing in the delightful natural surroundings found in Costa Rica’s South Pacific region. During the week, spend part of your days learning to surf at Bahia Ballena’s Whale Marine National Park, an ideal place for beginners to catch their first wave and progress their surf skills. Spend the other part of your day rejuvenating your body and taking in the natural beauty of your surroundings with a Vinyasa Flow yoga class. You can also arrange your week so that you have plenty of free time to do what you like: take a walk to the famous Whale’s Tail, hike to a cool and refreshing waterfall, or just kick back, relax and enjoy the fact that you are in Costa Rica.


Lodging & Prices


There are three main lodging options that we recommend for the surf and yoga vacation:


The first is the Ecolodge, it is an award-winning lodge on a lush jungle-y hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and has one of the country’s best yoga platforms. The Ecolodge is the priciest of the three options that we recommend, but your stay here will make your Costa Rican surf and yoga vacation “exceptional” as opposed to “memorable”.


The second accommodation option is the Co-operative Hotel, a Tico-owned and operated hotel located in the community of Bahia Ballena, within walking distance to the infamous “Whale Tail”. This is the mid-range option and is perfect for people who want to have a genuine “Costa Rican” experience on their vacation.


The third accommodation is Bodhi Surf Camp’s very own Bungalow, ideal for two to four people who want to stay in Bahia Ballena. Since you will be at the Bodhi Headquarters (where actual team members also live), you will have a very homey and surf-geared experience with access to surfboards and the yoga platform in your free time (note: platform access not available when yoga classes are scheduled) .
