Solar panels are responsible for utilizing the sun to heat all the hot water needed for the facility. Bodhi Tree will always work towards being as environmentally friendly as possible. Being aware of water usage is important in Costa Rica.

  Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, Costa Rica

The peaceful seaside town of Nosara is a world-class destination for surfing and eco-tourism. It is a perfect base to explore the magical coastline and hinterland of Costa Rica. Experience the joy of watching sea turtles lay their eggs, get face-to-face with exotic wildlife, try floating a kayak down a lazy river, or taking your first surf or paddle board lesson. 


The town is lined with healthy cafes and yoga studios and the community is an eclectic mix of locals and expats who have decided to call Nosara home. It is one of the few coastal towns that lacks nearly any development on the beach, meaning it is the perfect tranquil location to watch one breathtaking sunset.


The Nosara region is located on the North Pacific Coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, about 100 miles west of the capital, San Jose, and consists of five beachfront towns: Playa Nosara, Playa Garza, Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and Playa Ostional. The Ostional Wildlife Refuge borders Nosara and is the largest Olive Ridley turtle nesting site in the world. The Nosara and Montana Rivers are two of the longest in Costa Rica and are also teeming with wildlife. 


Just 100 miles west, Nosara is reachable from the San Jose International Airport and 2 hours South from Liberia International airport. You can also reach Nosara easily via shuttle, car, and buses. Once in the Nosara area there are roads and buses connecting the different beach towns.
