DEEPLY COMPASSIONATE SHAMAN AND GORGEOUS FACILITY
This is a beautiful facility with far more comfortable amenities than any place else I’ve seen. Don Lucho is not only a master shaman with 40 years of experience, he is also a genuinely loving and compassionate person who gives you warm personal attention. He sat down with us at most meals, got to know us, and made sure that we were well cared for.
His icaros are incredibly beautiful and his ceremonies are very powerful. He is highly educated, with a doctorate in psychology, so he has an added advantage of being able to explain shamanic concepts to western thinkers with remarkable clarity. I was so moved by my experience there, I plan to return for a whole month next time.

EXCELLENT AND LOVING RETREAT
There are two other shamans, Anderson and Luis Jr who are also exceptional and staged a ceremony when do Lucio couldn’t attend for health reasons.
It isn’t as strict a diet as many of the other retreats and the food is incredibly healthy, nutritious and tasty.
Contrary to many of the other retreats, don Lucio and his team brew the ayahuasca in the true form and do not cater for the ‘tourist’ crowd. According to some sources, other retreats add things like angels trumpet which can be lethal in order for the participant to have an even more crazy trip which is unnecessary and can be dangerous.
The love and care that you experience here is second to none and I have no hesitation in highly recommending this retreat. It helped me a lot.

BEST AYAHUASCA RETREAT IN THE AMAZON JUNGLE PERU
The entire family has their part in the retreat and really makes you love them. They are so hard not to love. It is the right place. I found out that the money from the retreats actually goes to the villages and people in need from the surrounding communities. Don Lucho the main Shaman really cares for people and and soley interested in helping others. In the 10 day retreat you get 4 Ayahauasca ceremonies which were so helpful for my healing and understanding of myself. Best experience Ever!!!!!

I WOULD RETURN IN A HEARTBEAT
I can tell you that Don Lucho, Monica and there sons did not cut one corner even-though I was the only attendee. It’s a experience that I will eternally be grateful for.
My advice to future guest:
Leave any expectations at the door, it’s a different journey for everyone. Like a fingerprint, none 2 exactly alike. Be sure to wear lose comfortable clothing. Boots for the times you go on a tour of the Amazon and slides for the times you are at the compound.
There is absolutely no way to charge electronic devices so please plan to bring your own battery and or solar panel. Try to learn enough Spanish so that you are able to communicate with Don Lucho your visions especially the next day after ceremony. Don Lucho Jr. speaks English fluently.
Be sure to have multiple flashlights, journal, books and if you are one of the few to be able to get cell tower service, be sure to download whats app for communication. Have a few audio books to help pass time, you can only journal but so much. Customs took all of the repellent I bought with me so good luck with that. Clothes are washed by hand and a natural no scent bar soap is best to have. There is no hot water but honestly you don’t care after the first shower. There is no such thing as ice or refrigeration on the compound.
The hammock in your room will become your best friend.
