Selva Madre is located near Iquitos on the Rio Nanay. It is a preserved area of the Amazon Rain forest and has easy access to and from Iquitos. It is about one hour from the central part of Iquitos in a serene and tranquil region of the Amazon jungle. This beautiful natural setting creates a sacred experience far removed from the commercial energy of the city. There is also a very serene creek that forms a separation between the temple and the living area that intersects Selva Madre.
The accommodations are individual, and include a private bathroom with shower and toilet. Based on availability you can choose a bungalow that provides more privacy closer to the temple or one closer to the dining area. Guests are encouraged to bring flashlights to guide them to and from the temple and dining room back to their bungalows.
Meals and kitchen
Meals are prepared three times a day beginning at 7 am with breakfast, lunch at 12pm, and ending at 7pm with dinner. On ceremony nights only breakfast and lunch will be served on those days. The kitchen staff will be happy to help you with any special dietary needs or questions.
We have a 3G reception in the kitchen and dining area that can be accessed with a Peruvian Sim card “Bitel” that you can easily buy at the Airport or in the city center.
