Itinerary / Program Information

Our retreat program is based on the traditional practices in Africa. It is about immersing yourself with Iboga We come to the temple together on the first day of arrival and we do not leave the retreat centre until the work with Iboga has been done. This retreat is about deep healing not about distractions, trips to the beaches and waterfalls can be done after. Our Iboga provider for these retreats will be Luis Makonza Da Silva. As a western teacher of Bwiti, Makonza is unparalleled. His ancestral lineage of black panther provides the strongest protection and guidance. Watch the jungles come alive with the iboga spirit in this totally immersive experience.

Venue & Amenities

At Ikara Retreat center, we have the most magnificent views of the pacific ocean visible from all parts of the property. The vista is so overwhelmingly large that it feels like the oceans horizon is higher than us. We have 180 degree ocean views which includes the islands of Manuel Antonio National Park. This vista brings a great sense of peace and calm to people, Being above the ocean but also in cool mountain air, we are ionized here. The center is quiet and as a result we have regular animal visitors to the property. Everyday we see colibri (hummingbirds), toucans, tolomuco (tayra), pezote (white nosed coati), agouti, white faced capuchins, mariposas (butterflies), eagles and a wealth of frogs, amphibians, monkeys, birds and lizards. There are sloths and wild cats (ocelot, jaguar, puma and margay) but they are all elusive. ​

Our retreat centre has a purpose built yoga deck overlooking the ocean, a pool where you can sit and watch the capuchins in the tree above or listen to toucans while watching the sunset. There is a mix of manicured gardens and jungle to explore. Plenty of space to be by yourself.. Growing on the property we have bananas, aguacate (avocados), pipas (coconuts), jengibre (ginger), manzana (apples) and more. ​​To be honest, the animals eat most of it!

​​Ikara means meeting place in the Adnyamathanha language. The Adnyamathanha are Indigenous People from the Flinders Ranges in Australia. We wanted to bring a piece of true Australian culture with us to our new location in Costa Rica.
