Costa Rican Recipes Straight to Your Inbox

At the Bodhi Surf + Yoga lodge, our goal is to serve food that is real — healthy, wholesome, and nutritious. All without sacrificing deliciousness, of course. Travel is a cultural experience, and we are excited to share some of our favorite Costa Rican recipes with you all: gallo pinto, patacones, casados, Caribbean curries, a few different veggie picadillos, traditional Costa Rican salads, and so much more.

As a surf and yoga camp, we are very health-conscious. As much as we can, we make everything from scratch, using locally-sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. Our recipes also take various dietary restrictions into account. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, or lactose-intolerant? No problem. We have plenty of alternatives and modifications in our arsenal.

We are proud to be an environmentally-conscious business (which in 2019 went Carbon Neutral). As such, Bodhi Surf + Yoga will occasionally feature chicken or fish on the menu, but we do not serve red meat in an effort to curb our environmental impact. Also, many of our recipes have ingredients which are local to us, but which may have to travel a great distance to you. Always consider local alternatives!

Our first cookbook, aptly titled "The Bodhi Cookbook", is a combination of local Costa Rican recipes, guest and staff favorites from over the years, and so much more! Learn more about how the cookbook came to be.
