Our ayahuasca retreats have been developed with both Andes Qero and Amazonian Shipibo Shaman. The retreat is run in a traditional manner extending from the way the plant medicine is prepared to the ancient knowledge and customs of the Shipibo and Qero cultures. The traditional base of the retreat is tempered with modern medical practices to ensure our guest safety and allow them to assimilate the experience in the best way possible.

I have just returned from a 3 day retreat at Etnikas and cannot express how grateful i am for this wonderful place.

I was very apprehensive about booking with Etnikas. I had been doing research for years and wanted it to be the perfect experience. I really wanted to go to Iquitos but with my itinerary I couldn't make it happen so I decided to just go for it. I am so happy I did. From day one the staff was so... More

I travelled to Peru with the main intention of taking Ayahuasca for the first time. After months of research, this is one of the only places that I felt a strong pull towards. The people and the retreat centre are all worth their weight in gold. The Gardens are a great place to meditate in, with beautiful friendly dogs that... More

After writing two long diatribes and having them pulled from the site I'm going to try to keep this short and sweet - so hopefully nobody is offended and asks for my review to be taken down yet again. The other 1 star reviews are spot-on, please read them. I didn't like the place, I didn't like the people, and... More

I believe this is a wonderful organization and a great place to experience plant medicines with caring, authentic staff. Gabriel, Coco, Ivan, the nursing staff and shamans were all fantastic. Etnikas is also doing great work in Cusco and neighboring communities that should be noted and supported. I had a difficult ayahuasca experience, but have already gained tremendous insight into...

Me and my brother went there for a 3-day retreat and it was just awesome. Of course ayahuasca confrontates you with your fears and deep emotions but the staff is very professional trying to take your fears and help you all time. You also get a good view into the culture and religion of the traditional people of Cusco. I... More

I went to Peru with the idea that I might do an Ayahuasca ceremony but wanted to be sure it would be safe, as it would be my first time and I was aware of the risks. The guide on a walking tour in Cusco recommended me Etnikas. I did my research and saw the great reviews. I was told... More

I had a life changing experience on this retreat. I had no idea that I was living a life of post traumatic stress, and carrying such a heavy burdon in life. I was able to forgive myself and those who hurt me. I so strongly recomend this to anyone who feels like they need a change in their life. I... More

I visited Peru in March to hike the Inca trail and fell in love with Cusco so decided to return for a 3 day ayahuasca retreat. Etnikas came very highly recommended by a friend I met in cambodia. I have not experimented with other drugs before and was a bit apprehensive at first, however after meeting the staff and being... More
