Ayahuasca (2 days)

ayahuasca   AyahuascaGenerally, before considering taking part in an ayahuasca ritual, you should inform yourself about the substance and be aware that it requires physical and spiritual preparation in advance.  This site offers good information. If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

First day:
We will meet at 11 am at the Arutam Ecotours office in Cuenca and start our journey to this special experience soon after. Afterwards you can explore Limón for a while. We will then drive to a small Shuar/Mestizo community in the middle of the rainforest. There we will watch the preparation of the ayahuasca and get to know the surroundings of the community, including a beautiful waterfall close to the Zamora river. When it gets dark we will begin the session with the local healer in a chosa of the community.

Second day:
In the morning we will walk with the healer to a small river nearby to celebrate the cleaning ritual. After your shower in the river, you can enjoy a light breakfast of fruits. We will then prepare to drive back to Limón and subsequently return to Cuenca.
