Pisatahua is one of a kind ayahuasca retreat. I´m really glad I waited until I was in the remote corners of the Amazon jungle to try ayahuasca for the first time. The entire experience was beautiful, sacred, and while at times challenging very safe.
The minute you step foot on the grounds you know you are in a very sacred and healing space. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking healing, personal growth, connection and a deeper understanding of themselves. It is definitely worth it to make the trek up to Riberalta, especially if trying ayahuasca for the first time. You will get nothing short of an authentic Amazonian experience with a family−owned feel far off the tourist trail. The grounds are magical and alive. There´s not too many places that place you right in heart of the jungle action while simultaneously swaddling you in a cozy hammock and letting you shower under an indoor Niagra falls with a sunset view of river crocodiles. It´s like a vacation from your brain. The Amazon jungle will sing you to sleep at night with its chorus of indistinguishable noises. (You´ll get a very thorough briefing on which snakes and wild cats to avoid over a nice fresh glass of acai juice.) The guided tai chi, meditation and hiking are a nice touch too. Sasha, Erik and Don Chaca are one of a kind, high caliber humans. They remained very present and in touch with everyone´s needs throughout the retreat. It´s nice to know that the proceeds from Pisatahua go to support their partner nonprofit with social and environmental impact projects in the local community. Too bad I only have 5 stars to give!
