- Orillas del Río Uchima, Barrio Sacapo, Parroquia San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador
Private Ayahuasca & San Pedro Retreat in the heart of San Pedro de Vilcabamba, in Loja, Ecuador. Casa Del Sol works with small groups to optimize the quality of your experience, and share the space as a family. Blessed with a beautiful location within the Valley of Longevity, we integrate ourselves with its powerful medicine; our retreats include walking through its mountains, cleansing ourselves in the waterfalls and in the river in front of our home. We make offerings, meditate, practice yoga, hold sweat lodges and plant medicine ceremonies to encourage this integration.
I attended a retreat at Casa del Sol and was very disappointed with my experience there. I had seen all of the positive reviews so I was surprised with the bad energy I received from Santiago and his wife, and their insistence to write a super positive review after the retreat. While there I lost my camera and $350, which I think they took during a ceremony…I learned after the fact that he was fired from his previous job at Gaia Sagrada for stealing as well. I do not recommend this center. The owners are sketchy and do not really care about the welfare of their guests, they are just looking for money.
Santiago The Shaman is the real deal but I would stay away as his wife talks about love and healing but is a hypocrite and gives Lip Service to it and undoes any sort of help or healing Santiago does I attended to do ayahuasca and after attending I now suffer from cluster headaches I asked them to help me with my father and I got told effectively to go away so please understand you will get a conflicting service and quite possibly one of them is a charlatan and a hypocrite and I would not say that inauthentic person is Santiago he seems to be genuine but be warned that there is one entity at this Retreat that will work against you you have been warned
