Imagine watching your children catch their first wave, looking so proud when they stand up and ride. The experience of surfing together is something you all will remember for a long time. The Bodhi Family Surf Camp 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. Some opt for low-key, quality family bonding: playing board games, going on walks together or doing an adventure tour like sea kayaking or ziplining. 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 Surf + Yoga team will be here to help you—providing knowledge and assistance on booking tours, navigating the community, and answering any questions you may have! 

Get your hearts pumping on the water with five surf lessons. Let your minds unwind on land with an optional family yoga session. Bring your family of four or more and they will close off the entire lodge just for you. If you’re a family with less than four, find comfort in knowing that no more than 10 guests will be hosted at a time. That’s how Bodhi strikes the perfect balance between creating a mini-community within each retreat and fostering more personalized experiences for each guest.

Expect to embrace life’s simple pleasures here. Expect to challenge yourself. Expect to learn about the environment, the philosophies behind the activities you’ll engage in and how they seamlessly translate into perspectives relevant to your own life. Experience something bigger than yourself within yourself in beautiful Bahia Ballena-Uvita, Costa Rica.

Community Engagement

The true Bodhi Surf + Yoga experience is about being immersed into the local community, even if it’s just for a week. One way to do this is with a Community Walking Tour, a fun jaunt around Bahia Ballena with trained guides who discuss the local history, culture, economy and environment.
