What to expect upon arriving at the airport:
After you get your luggage, walking outside you will see a driver marked with a Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort orange sign. He/She may have a Bodhi Tree hat on as well as an orange Bodhi Tree T-shirt. They will greet you and help get your luggage to the van- which may be parked in the lot to the right of the exit.

What to Pack:
Leave the high heels home! Nosara is beach casual everywhere. Bring bug spray, sunscreen, hat, water bottle, (although if you forget yours we sell them in our boutique) sundresses for dinner out, comfortable workout clothes during the day, and don't forget the swimsuit. Bodhi Tree provides manduka yoga mats and props so you can leave yours at home.

 

Money:
Costa Rican currency is in Colones. The US dollar is widely accepted. Bodhi Tree accepts Colones, USD, Visa, Mastercard and Am Ex.

If you pay in USD you will most likely get Colones in change.

Cash at the ATM’s in town is hard to access down here. If you have a chip in your card it will not work at the Banco Popular on Main Street- you will need to go to the bank by the gas station- which is about a 10 minute drive from Bodhi Tree. We advise you to bring what you think you'll need for the week. Keep in mind if you are going on adventure tours- as many tours are cash only.

 

How far is the property from the beach? 10 minute walk- 15 minutes if you walk slowly or stop to say hola to a monkey. Free bike rentals are available for Bodhi Tree guests or hop on our Bodhi Bus (14 seater golf cart)!

 

Do we provide beach/pool towels? Yes

Most excursions are paid in cash only. Bodhi Del Mar Surfing lessons can be billed to your room. Please email: frontdesk@bodhitreeyogaresort.com to reserve your adventure! Transportation to the beginning destination of all adventures is not included (except for Bodhi Del Mar surfing lessons).
