Stay at my place

Santuario Huistin is a shamanic retreat center where one can begin a journey into total mind/body health and personal awakening. Set amongst the ancestral medicine trees in the Amazon rainforest and against a backdrop of a boiling volcanic river, Santuario is a center of dreaming, healing and detoxification, where one can restore oneself to a level of peaceful mindfulness in nature and recover one's vitality away from the stress and innervation of modern life in the city.

Dietas can be as short as the eight day ayahuasca diet or extend for months in duration, depending on your needs. Working with ayahuasca in ceremony is only one important part of the process. The maestro has a large experience of the powerful properties of a wide variety of traditional Amazonian plant medicines and you will be administered with them during your retreat, depending on your needs.
