It was my first aya retreat and it was absolutely fantastic in almost all categories. The staff treated me very well, the place is beautiful, and the shamans are incredibly powerful and their healing energies are second to none. The only reason that stops be giving it 5 stars is that Ricardo (the master shaman and owner) decided to postpone the final ceremony by one day because he wanted to have a party for his wife for her birthday instead. This meant that I did not get to have my 4 ceremonies as planned in one week. Although I was refunded the day rate, it meant I wasnt able to go as deep as I wanted to into the experience and this left me with a feeling of missing out. Overall, i learned so much while at the center, loved meeting all the people especially Martina and Cvita who are shining lights of this community, and this is just my first step in a long journey with plant medicine, so I am immensely grateful. I am sure this incident was a one-off, and i would otherwise recommend this center to anyone. It is very safe for women and men alike, and you will be very well taken care of. Thank you to everyone who made it special.
