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 (it will be opening in June of 2013), 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) .

Our family of six had the best vacation we’ve ever had thanks to the great people at Bodhi Surf. We’re ready to go back again. The surfing was so beautiful and so much fun for the whole family. With their excellent instruction, we all were able to surf, the yoga was simply AMAZING (please don’t miss the yoga), the help with planning our trip and the general professionalism made everything so easy.
A Typical Yoga & Surf Vacation Day
When you wake up in the morning, you will be in beautiful Costa Rica! Eat a delicious breakfast, and head to the beach for a surf session that is sure to leave you feeling stoked. After the lesson, you can spend a little more time relaxing on the beach, then head to a local restaurant for a filling and delicious lunch. Post-lunch you can relax some more and stay cool during the hottest part of the day, maybe even having a little nap if it suits you. In the afternoon, go to the Bodhi Headquarters for an energizing yoga session that’s the perfect complement to the morning’s surf lesson. You can relax the rest of the evening if you want to, and get rested and prepared for the next day of surf and yoga fun!
