Flights are not as reliable as westerns are accustomed to and it is possible your flight and / or your flight number will be changed, or your flight delayed.

The Local currency is the Sole (S/.) however it is better to bring USD ($), in clean notes. Torn, damaged or old notes are not accepted. Money exchangers offer a better rate than Banks on every day except when Banks are closed.

 

Climate

What is the weather like?

We are 13 degrees south of the equator and 2,000 feet below Cusco. This provides a fairly constant climate, we do not have the traditional four seasons, we have two, wet and dry. It is difficult to be precise as to wen the seasons change as recently things have been changing. However September to April can be considered the wet season and April to September the dry season. This does not mean it doesn't rain during the dry season as it can and there are mostly dry days in the wet season. So it is more likely to rain September through April but in the last couple of years mostly in the afternoons and only for a couple of hours and it is colder in the evenings when the sun goes down, however we have a large log fire. During the rainy season it is warmer in the evenings.

 

The Medicines, Prescription drugs and Diet

Where are the medicines sourced?

Our Ayahuasca comes from the Amazon, we have known the source for seven years. We do not use additives such as Toe. Our San Pedro is prepared on site and those wishing to know how we do this we will give demonstrations. Sapo again comes from the Amazon.

Can I continue with prescription drugs?

It depends on what they are, we will need to be informed prior to the retreat and provide specific advice.

Can I take Marijuana?

No, Marijuana needs to be stopped at least seven days before you arrive, longer is desirable and better. Ayahuasca and Maijunana are not compatible.

Diet prior to the retreat

At least three days before you arrive you need to completely stop all red meats and specifically pork and reduce dairy products to a minimum. It is important to reduce all animal fats to an absolute minimum. Small amounts of chicken and fish will do no harm however if they can be avoided then that is better. During the retreat all meals are vegetarian.
