I can’t recommend this place enough. Everything was perfect- from facilities to Shamans. It was my first time there and I felt nothing but supported, safe and guided. My journey was rather challenging hence special thanks to Bianca and Rocio for supporting me throughout the ceremonies. Beautiful Maestros. I will be back!

This was one of the most magical beautiful experiences of my life. It took me almost a year to write this review. But I’ve been thinking about going back and decided to look up the reviews once more. The people that are giving this place one and two stars are clearly not ready for what ayahuasca has to show them. They probably didn’t follow the protocol, etc. My personal experience was life changing. I did the five day retreat, which I highly recommend. I did the ceremony two nights and my experiences were polar opposites. The first like heaven, the second like hell. The second night is the one that I really needed though. And it’s what helped me feel a lot of self acceptance for myself. This is not a “cure” all and you should really prepare yourself and ask yourself if you are ready for this. Ayahuasca was calling me for about ten years before I decided I was ready. If ayahuasca is calling you then Etnikas is the place to do it! I felt safe the entire time with the staff and location. The beauty of the center is breathtaking. I also ended up adopting a puppy from their rescue and they helped me with all the paperwork to bring her back to the us. <3

My experience at Etnikas was nothing less then sensational. The care, love and consideration that is displayed cannot be fully described unless you attend this compound. Ive been planning a Ayahuasca trip for about two year and with the pandemic hitting the world made it things a bit difficult. But i can truly say this was my time and calling to be here with the attendees and staff present. Beautiful establishment, caring staff members and such and enriched process when dealing in ceremonial activities. The website does no justice to how this place looks (please update your site please !!! lol). When researching other facilities Etnikas always came up as top 3 but others displayed more of a zen like appeal which can be tricky when wanting native vs nice. I want to experience anything closer to how it was done by the ancestors, and Etnikas gives you that. To where i feel other facilities are more spa like, and there is nothing wrong with that. They have log cabin rooms that were spacious even when sharing with two others. Modern style bathrooms with all the essentials needed and lockers for personals as well. The kitchen staff cooked their asses off with the most amazing vegan dishes. Every morning i looked forward to the food. They have such a caring nursing staff that constantly make ensure you are comfortable, healthy and safe. The Shamans who are more like mother and father figures in their craft guide you through the spiritual thick and thin, having you leaving to want more. When wanting to experience Ayahuasca not only do you go to Peru but go to Etnikas. Great price, great facility and most of all great experience.

Amazing staff. Amazing location. Amazing ceremonies with full security (advise for diet before retreat, lots of helpers during retreat, regular medical check-ups, psychological assistance during retreat (by the group and/or individually), great detox in all forms (diet, medications, digital detox, and so on). Overall: I highly recommend this retreat.

I did an incredible 5 day Ayahuasca retreat at Etnikas and can't speak highly enough about it! The centre is located in an incredibly beautiful location in the sacred valley with streams running through it and gorgeous scenery. I took part in 3 Ayahuasca ceremonies that truly changed my life. The Ayahuasca brought me to places I've never experienced before, and opened my eyes, and deepened my understanding of life. It's a powerful experience, one which you need to be be properly guided and supported throughout. The staff , the shamans, psychologists, the doctor and the nurses were beyond caring, in fact, some of the most caring people I've ever been with. The work they did to ensure we were safe and had a meaningful experience was always filled with loving kindness. They were special people, and I'll always remember them and be grateful for their care. I can't say enough about what this retreat meant, and the professional, safe, nurturing environment it was held in. If you're considering trying Ayahuasca in Peru, I highly recommend Etnikas, and would recommend the full 5 days with the 3 ceremonies. I will definitely be going back! Thank you Etnikas!
