Bodhi Surf + Yoga is a surf and yoga camp located in Bahia Ballena, Osa, Costa Rica — a small, still relatively untouched community on the Southern Pacific Zone of the country. It is located at the footsteps of the Marino Ballena National Park, a place where the jungle, ocean, and mountains meet; a unique backdrop for a place to immerse yourself in nature, recharge, become energized, and “awaken your inner surfer”. As a tourism-based business, Bodhi Surf + Yoga strives to provide its guests with holistic and unique travel experiences that promote responsible tourism, facilitate community engagement, and encourage individuals to see the world (and their role in it!) with fresh eyes. As a surf and yoga camp, Bodhi Surf + Yoga provides its guests with fun, challenging experiences that teach them the necessary skills that will allow them to go forth and continue practicing these activities independently. As a follower and supporter of the neuro-conservation movement, Bodhi Surf + Yoga utilizes surfing and yoga as a way to facilitate unforgettable learning experiences in nature with the intention of bolstering individual long-term action.
