The Hummingbird Ayahuasca Retreat Center in Iquitos Peru is located near kilometer 14 on the Iquitos-Nauta highway, outside the village of Varillal. At 2.6 kilometers from the main road, our location offers a quiet, peaceful environment removed from the noise and distractions of modern jungle-town life. The center is an oasis of tranquility, full of the sounds of jungle wildlife, including the cry of hawks, the lively prattle of parrots flying overhead, and the gentle whirring of hummingbird wings. Nights are filled with the sounds of frogs singing their joy of life, owls trilling for their mates, and the ubiquitous symphony of hundreds of different types of insects. These beautiful jungle night-noises are a wonderful accompaniment to the icaros sung during an ayahuasca ceremony.
All participants of our 12 Day Ayahuasca Retreats or 9 Day Ayahuasca Retreats will be met at the Fitzcaraldo restaurant on the Boulevard, a river front park a block away from the Plaza de Armas and near the hotels. Here is a link to Google Maps for Fitzcaraldo. It is on the left corner facing the buildings. The restaurant is easy to find, just ask your hotel or any motocar driver. You will be picked up at 10:00 am on the first day of the retreat and brought to the ayahuasca retreat center in Iquitos.
For those on Personalized Ayahuasca Retreats, we will work out the pick up on an individual basis. However, we do encourage you to start your stay with the 12 or 9 day retreat programs, as it flows smoother than other starting dates.
We recommend that you arrive in Iquitos the day before you are picked up and brought to the ayahuasca retreat center. This allows you to enter the healing journey well rested and relaxed.
