Uvita, Costa Rica | Bodhi Surf + Yoga
It’s been a while since I’ve been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica, but I still feel very connected to the culture and people that I experienced there. One of my friends during my service never actually left Costa Rica. He got married there and founded an amazing company called Bodhi Surf + Yoga with his wife.
In addition to surf and yoga experiences, they advocate for protecting the world’s oceans and have a program called “Ocean Guardians” that I recently signed up for, so that I can participate with my kids and learn what we can do together to protect the oceans.
They also recently came out with a cookbook full of delicious Costa Rican recipes, which you can download and offer a donation for here – https://www.bodhisurfyoga.com/food/costa-rican-recipes
Bodhi Surf + Yoga is located in Uvita, a small town on the Pacific Coast in the Bahia Ballena (Whale’s Bay). I visited there a few times and always remember walking out into a whale’s tail formation during low tide (you can see a photo of this on their website), and watching hundreds of crabs scramble about the sand!
This seascape artwork that I painted is from a photo that I took along the beach in Uvita. If you ever wanted to experience a quiet piece of paradise, this is the place!
