Where to find Ayahuasca? Top 4 Retreats

Well well well! wouldn’t you want to know?
HAHA! Right so I have made this post specifically to help y’all find Ayahuasca or “La Medicina.”

La Medicina has its roots in the Amazonian rainforest. And thus, both the vital ingredients (plants) that make the base of this medicine are prominently found in the mountains and forests surrounding the area.

While some shamans might make intricate changes to the recipe for the medicine to match the vibe they work with – the base remains solid with two psychoactive ingredients that will make you question reality.

So, for all you people out there that are in need of a “spiritual healing” and are desperately looking out for this “miracle plant” that can help you open up your mind and look at the world in a different way, the best place to experience this concoction is within a retreat where you have an experienced Shaman to guide you. And these are the top 4.

Aya is famous throughout the world, from layman to celebrities, everybody has heard of it – and right of course – everybody wants to drink it. In fact, there is one resort that celebrities frequently visit to drink this “miracle concoction” and you can check it out here – warning, if you want to get the celebrity experience, you will have to pay like a celebrity.

The amazonian rainforest might not be very accessible to a lot of people that want to try this “medicine for the mind.”

So, what about those that cannot – for whatever reason, take a physical journey to the Amazonian forests to experience the spiritual journey of a lifetime? All you guys can check out the list below because…

… the love for Aya is widespread and it has probably made its way somewhere near you!

While the effects can vary from person to person, the prep is the same. Yes – you have to prepare your body – both mentally and physically to ingest this medicine. And you can find a guide here. Yes there is a diet to be followed and yes there are restrictions on sexual activities.


Truth be told, with Ayahuasca retreats, you can have a positive or a negative experience. While positive experiences include ego death and a clarity towards life, negative experiences range from self induced anxiety attacks and sexual harassment cases. While shamans are to be blamed directly for sexual harassment, some shamans can also – to a certain extent, guide you around these self induced “anxiety attacks” which could, in the long term, help you get straight thinking and even get over depression or other such issues. Thus, it is absolutely imperative for you to choose the right retreat for you.

Hey! This is about where you can find Ayahuasca right?

So, here you go! These are carefully researched options from around the world. Keep in mind – while I might have done my fair bit of research, you must do too. This list will give you names that you can research about.

One more thing – make sure you do read customer reviews about the place before you decide to make your booking – and make sure the reviews are recent, not as old as the plant itself.
