Interpreter

If you don’t speak Spanish, don’t worry, we offer a complimentary highly experienced on-site facilitator and interpreting Spanish-English service, as part of the retreat in the Ayahuma venue (at no extra cost to you).

1 – Payment

Go to our payment page and select the payment button-s corresponding to your chosen retreat options. The eCommerce platform will prompt you to register first and at the end of the registration you may select either to pay with your credit or debit card via PayPal Express Checkout, or else, to pay electronically via direct bank transfer. Should you require assistance on how to make the payment, please contact us and we shall be more than happy to assist you.

Deposit

A non-refundable Deposit of £ 400 GBP p.p. must be paid contextually to your reserved dates for the retreat. This will go towards the payment of the final balance due for your staying.

Balance

The remaining balance must be paid and funds fully cleared no later than 30 days before the beginning of the Ayahuasca retreat, or 50 days before the beginning of the Plant Diet retreat. Please email us confirmation of payment made. If you cannot meet the formal deadlines, and need to pay at a shorter notice, we may still accept you, subject to availability. Your remaining balance for the retreat must in all cases be fully paid well before your arrival. A detailed Information Pack containing essential information on how to better prepare for your trip to Peru and your retreat in the jungle will be sent you as email attachment, within 1-2 working days from the receipt of your payment.

Your place for the Ayahuasca (1-2 weeks), combined Ayahuasca and San Pedro (1-2 weeks), Pre-Diet (Plant Diet tester, 3-4 weeks), Diet with Master Trees (5+ weeks), or Shamanic Plant Diet (13 weeks) retreat will be reserved upon receipt of your deposit/full payment (whichever is earlier), and your place will be finally confirmed upon receipt of the remaining balance and booking documents.

2 – Online Booking Form

Complete and forward the online Booking Form, specifying your FULL arrival & departure flight details (only to/from IQUITOS) if you know it (otherwise you may email these details separately).

Flights to/from Iquitos, airport pick-up, and retreat days

You may arrive in Iquitos (Peru) with any flight, at any time of day or night and we will take care of your airport pick-up and transfer to the Ayahuma shamanic retreat centre. However, please note that arrival day and departure day do count towards your total number of days staying at the retreat, regardless of whether you would be arriving in the early morning, in the late afternoon, or in the evening. The retreat will technically complete on your last day, after the 1:00 PM lunch, but you may choose any flight leaving Iquitos in the morning, afternoon, or early evening, and we will provide your transfer back to the airport as well. It takes approximately one hour to reach Iquitos airport, and you should allow an extra hour and half for the check-in at the desk.

Please Note:

* Currently – with the only exception of COPA airlines flying from Panama City airport (in Panama) – there are no direct international flights serving Iquitos, so your flight must be routed via Lima (Peru), either way, on the outbound and inbound journey. We recommend you to fly to Iquitos with LATAM Airlines: www.latam.com – booking online, having your passport and credit card ready. Alternatively, try with the cheaper options of Star Peru (www.starperu.com), or (the often unreliable) Peruvian Airlines (www.peruvianairlines.com).

3 – Agreement Form + Copy of Passport

The Agreement of participation will be emailed to you upon confirmation of your booking. You will need to return it by email, completed of all requested information, dated and signed, alongside a photocopy of your Passport (only the page with your details on). Please send ALL PAGES of the Agreement, including those pages which do not require data input.

You are kindly requested to download the latest Adobe Reader DC, from the Adobe website:

If you have no access to computer, email or scanner, you may alternatively send the Agreement by registered or signed for mail to our UK address.
