Small is beautiful

Our “Small is Beautiful” business philosophy has driven how we've built + grown Bodhi Surf + Yoga over the last decade. It has never been about how many guests we can host, but instead the depth of every single guest's experience. Like you, we know that travel with family, friends, or even solo can be not just memorable, but transformational.

Of course, a vacation is fun. But, it can also be enriching, restorative, and even challenging in the best of ways, as we learn new activities, try foods we haven't tried before, or get the chance to reflect on our day-to-day lives back home from a unique perspective.

To achieve this, though, to go BIG on the experience we've committed to staying small. It's why we've kept our lodge small, hosting a maximum of 10 guests per week. Smaller groups keep the experience personal, comfortable, and familiar.


We look forward to welcoming you into our home.

What Guests Have To Say


We are so grateful for everyone at Bodhi who made our experience the best. We felt like we truly learned to surf, connected with the ocean and ourselves, ate extremely well, breathed deeply, slept well, napped well in the hammocks, and soaked in all the good vibes from the people and the place. We will absolutely be back!

There was *instant* connection among all the guests which made for a really extraordinary week. Bodhi's approach is to use Yoga and Surf to provide memorable learning experiences with the idea that guests will leave inspired to continue learning long term. I'm sold! And their commitment to the environment and sustainability, and dedication to being a certified B Corporation shows they are walking the walk.


Massachusetts, USA

Bodhi Surf & Yoga exceeded all of our expectations. As first time Costa Rica travelers, we so appreciated the structure and support Bodhi offered and absolutely loved being immersed in the local experience of Uvita and Bahia Ballena. Both the surfing and the yoga were a fun physical challenge but personally tailored to each person in our group. Our bungalow was perfect - very clean and comfortable and the gardens and grounds within Bodhi are gorgeous. We found Bodhi a perfect mix of relaxation and activity.

I don't even know where to begin with this truthfully. You always feel like a trip will just be a trip, no matter how life-changing people SAY it will be or how powerful it will be to personal growth, it will still just be a trip. I just think "yep ill be surfing and doing yoga, it'll be great". Bodhi always catches me off guard and makes me have a real experience that I never forget, and by the end, I always find I am choked up to say goodbye. They are just so welcoming. They care.
