Spend 7 nights for 2 people rejuvenating in Costa Rica with Bodhi Surf + Yoga in the beautiful Bahia Ballena community.

The Bodhi Sessions are the truest reflection of our company: combining everything we love, believe in, and want to share with others - and creating the pinnacle of Bodhi Surf + Yoga! Bodhi Sessions are week-long, holistic, well-rounded surf and yoga camps with set dates and structured itineraries. They will have you actively experiencing the pristine southern Pacific region of Costa Rica! Their aim is to teach, inspire, and re-energize, all while giving you ample time on your surfboard and yoga mat.

This trip includes:

  • 6 nights at Bodhi Lodge
  • 1 night in San Jose at the Adventure Inn (or comparable property, depending on availability)
  • 5 surf lessons
  • 1 massage
  • 1 free day
  • Visit to waterfall
  • Round trip transportation SJ - Uvita - SJ
  • Daily breakfasts (except on free day)
  • 3 group dinners
  • Fruit at each surf lesson
  • Guided walking tour of Bahia Ballena 
  • National Park entrance fees

Bodhi Sessions are designed for travelers who love spending time being active in the outdoors, want to meet like-minded individuals and share great conversations and experiences, are interested in learning about a whole host of subjects ranging from the ocean to themes of development and growth in rural Pacific Costa Rica to responsible tourism, and aren't afraid to challenge themselves! On top of your surfing and yoga sessions, you will also have the opportunity to take a guided walking tour around the community of Bahia Ballena and learn about our community's history, development, and challenges; visit a local waterfall and take in the lush jungle scenery; and enjoy a day off to either rest and recharge or participate in another activity or tour! Daily breakfasts (except on your free day) and three dinners are included in your week-long stay in Bahia Ballena to provide a sense of sharing and community at the Bodhi Surf Lodge, while also giving you the opportunity to sample the local fare and support our community's economy.
