READY TO VISIT AS A FAMILY?

SPACES ARE LIMITED TO 10 GUESTS PER WEEK

We are a family of four: middle-aged, but still athletic, parents, and two young adult / teen daughters. Although we have had many adventures together, learning to surf as a family was still on our list, and turned out to be a wonderful experience that we will talk about for years.

Learning and adventure

Our goal at Bodhi Surf + Yoga is not just to keep your family busy and entertained for week, but rather to engage your minds, bodies, and spirits while teaching the fundamentals of surfing and highlighting environmental awareness. That way you are equipped to take these activities with you in your lives, and even do them independently! Any surfer will tell you, surfing is more than just an activities, it is lifestyles.

At Bodhi, our biggest aim is to awaken purpose; to help your family have physical, mental, and spiritual “a-hah!” moments of inspiration and achievement; and to give you truly soul-gratifying (perhaps even life-changing), experiences! We delight in watching families have a memorable adventure together while learning, laughing, and growing.

A company that cares

Bodhi Surf + Yoga does business differently, and we are proud to have earned our B Corp Certification in 2016 for our long-established Corporate Responsibility program. When you visit us, you will engage with the Bahia Ballena community in a way that simply wouldn’t happen at just any hotel or all-inclusive resort, through measures like Travelers’ Philanthropy Program and our Community Walking Tour.

By way of our surf lesson philosophy and Ocean Guardian program, you will [re]connect with nature and the ocean, allowing you to consider concrete actions that you can take when you return home to make our world a better place!

Ample time for the family

The Bodhi Family package provides ample free time, allowing your family to add-on to the Bodhi experience. Some opt for low-key, quality family bonding: playing board games, going on walks together, or doing an adventure tour like sea kayaking or zip-lining. Others choose pure relaxation: chilling in the pool, reading in the hammocks, or having some fun beach days.

Regardless of what your family opts to do, there are many options, and the Bodhi team will be here to help you — providing our knowledge and assistance on booking tours, navigating the community, and answering any questions you may have!

WHAT TO EXPECT

BEST FAMILY SURF CAMP EXPERIENCE

When you choose Bodhi Family, you can expect to have a fun-filled, physically active learning vacation. Transportation and logistics are taken care of to reduce stress and promote relaxation and family bonding time. At the beginning of the week, your family will all participate in the three included surf lessons (or yoga classes), giving you plenty of time later in the week to do other tours, or add on private family yoga classes and/or additional surf lessons.

Also included is a tour of the community, a visit to the local waterfall, much-needed massages for the adults, and delicious, healthy meals enjoyed family-style at the lodge. Even with all this activity, there will be plenty of time to relax and unwind, whether that’s relaxing around (or in) the pool, lounging in the hammocks, playing board games in the common area, or wandering around the community!

HEALTHY & DELICIOUS MEALS

Meals provided will be family-style with members of the Bodhi team and, frequently, other community members. Our aim is to facilitate a sense of sharing and community. Your other meals can either be prepared at the Bodhi lodge (every bungalow/room has access to cooking space) or you can support the local economy and learn more about its culture by sampling local fare.

A TASTE OF BODHI FOR THE FAMILY

The Bodhi Family package is designed for families who have different needs than groups of adults. This option has the flexibility to be just what you and your family need: it can be a relaxing vacation with a few activities but plenty of restful down time to ease your body, mind, and spirit, all the way to an intensive physical learning vacation that challenges you and your family in new ways, or something in between.

While you’re here, you will have ample opportunity to learn about the community of Bahia Ballena, including the town’s history, development, and challenges. The beauty of the Bodhi Family vacation is that it provides a taste of Bodhi and plenty of time to see what our spectacular home has to offer!
