Our Story

Bodhi-Del Mar is the fusion of the gorgeous Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort & Del Mar Surf Camp.  Together they joined forces to offer the best that Nosara has to offer - a Certified Surf School employing some of the best surfers in Costa Rica, housed in the most luxurious accommodations in Nosara.

Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort was creatively designed around nature, leaving the surrounding jungle as it was meant to be.  They strived to preserve the jungle’s natural state leaving the impression that Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort has been here for many years.

Del Mar Surf Camp was established in 2001 by María del Mar Alfaro in Jaco, Costa Rica. Her passion for sharing Costa Rica’s beauty and year-round surf lead to creating Costa Rica’s first native female-owned surf schools. They take pride in being the first and only Certified Surf School through the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT).  All of Del Mar Surf Camp’s instructors are certified in CPR, First Aid and Water Rescue. They are also the only surf school with their Sustainability Certification. 


Whether you’re a novice or an advanced surfer looking to take your skills to a higher level, our year-round consistent waves and certified instructors will help you reach your surfing goals and inspire an appreciation for your overall wellness.  Our goal is to teach you how to surf in a fun and relaxed environment where you’ll immediately feel like you're out surfing with your friends!
