I stayed here for a week but paid for longer stay up front.
First thing that worried me when I arrived, was that he asked what my special requirements were as he didn’t understand them. He had said they were no problem before I booked it.
Then on my first ceremony, I had a bad trip. Not blaming him for the bad trip but I called out for help but by that time, Percy had already left the temple. It was left up to the other guests to try and help me. Apparently I tried to climb over a railing which one of the guests had to hold me back. This meant I was ruining the other guests experiences, when I should have been taken care of by the staff.
At 7am the next morning, one of the guests came and got me as I was still in the temple all by myself, still having a bad experience. He had to help me to my room as I was still unable to do anything myself.
After I got some sleep, I was wanting to talk to Percy about what had happened. That’s when I found out that he is only there for the ceremonies on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. That meant I had to wait for almost two days before I could speak to him. Once again it was the other guests that I talked to about it.
I later realised I had left some personal belongings in the temple. When I went back to get them, they were no where to be found. I asked the staff if they had seen them but no one had. This meant someone helped themselves to my belongings while I was not sober enough to look after them. No flashlight and one shirt down now.
Then there is the bathroom, which is a muddy creek that is downstream from another village. This means that you bath in waste / sewage water. Not only that, but this is where they wash the dishes they serve your food on.
Then there is the complete lack of things to do there. Apart from a very small library and going for walks. If it wasn’t for the other guests, I would not have had any help, information or entertainment during my stay.
Finally. When I decided to leave, I asked Percy if I get some money back for my unused portion of my stay. He dodged this question. He didn’t even ask why I wanted to leave early. Shows how much he cares about his guests.
In the end I left without getting anything back.
If you are just looking for a place to serve you ayahuasca and don’t care about hygiene or anything else then this place might be ok.
