Bodhi Surf + Yoga Lodge

Since opening Bodhi Surf + Yoga in 2010, we have had a shared vision of providing an affordable and homey lodging option that is consistent with our vision of simplicity and environmental consciousness, and creating a space that encourages fun, relaxation, education, and cultural exchange. This vision did not include “modern adornments” (such as flat-screen TVs), but rather a mellow vibe, quaint setting, and warm, personalized service. Since 2013, this vision has been a reality!

We, the Bodhi Surf + Yoga camp owners, live on the lodge premises and are available 24/7 in the event that you need anything. During the day, the Bodhi staff is on-site helping ensure that the lodge is running smoothly and likewise, is happy to help you practice your Spanish or answer questions about the local community.

Ocean Guardian Pledge

Before anything else, Bodhi was extremely COVID safe. They followed all the protocols and we always felt very safe. Both the surf and yoga lessons were brilliant, because they each taught more than just the exercise. They also taught us the philosophy, and the fundamental principles of each discipline. We couldn’t think of a better way to learn surfing or practise yoga. Go. Go stay with them. Do it now.


London, England
Bodhi Family Surf Camp

We are a family of four; parents late 40s, daughters 11 and 12. We’re in pretty good shape, travel extensively and were looking for a unique experience. I can say we found that experience at Bodhi. The lodging (we were in the Gratitude bungalow) was great. Comfortable, clean and spacious with everything you'd need for a week long surf camp. Overall, it was exceptional. The people, the place, the vibe, the mentality, the food - all excellent. It was like staying at a friend's house.

I enjoyed it very much and I am grateful for everything [they] taught us. This is definitely something every surfer and ocean lover should do. I will continue practicing in low tide.



As someone who has never been super comfortable in the ocean, I felt apprehensive about learning how to surf. Bodhi's week long curriculum is put together so well, with each day building on the skills from the previous day.



I think there is a strong spiritual element to surfing. It's one of those sports that brings you so close to nature as you are completely in it head to toe. Travis explained to us how each time he first goes into the water for a surfing session, as he gets out into the white wash he lies face down floating in the water between waves and gives deep thanks to Mother Ocean. Gratitude is a strong underlying theme at Bodhi.

Our philosophy

You will never find any area of the Bodhi Surf & Yoga lodge to be excessive or cluttered, either visually or physically. One of our highest values is that “less is more”, and these are words that we all try to live by every day. We encourage our guests to enjoy the many sights, smells, tastes, and sounds of the area, and to really feel — without too many “modern” distractions — what life is like here. Our three themes for building and decor have been:

  1. natural
  2. simple
  3. welcoming

And we hope that it shows!
