Why 3 nights, 4 days?
In 3 nights and 4 days, we’ve found that our guests are able to:
disconnect from modern life and work
detox enough for the medicine to work at a deeper level
soak in the natural surroundings (also considered detox)
still have enough time to explore other parts of the country
Many other retreat centers offer 1-2 weeklong retreats, which are surely incredible. However, as many of our guests can attest, 3 nights of ayahuasca is already quite intense and the most important lessons are often learned in the days and months to follow, as one returns home.
We encourage all our visitors to return for another retreat and are thrilled to see familiar faces 🙂
4-day ayahuasca retreat description
Cost: $480 ($120/day)
Duration: 4 days, 3 nights
Location: Outskirts of Puyo, Ecuador
Description: Our 4 day / 3 night Ayahuasca retreat is ideal for those that wish to experience as deeply as is possible in a short amount of time.
During these 3 nights of ceremony, you are more likely to completely prepare your body and mind to receive the medicine, a process which usually takes 1 -2 nights/sessions. Following this process, the medicine can work in other ways. Read more about this in our FAQs page.
While the focus of this retreat is Ayahuasca, we work with various other sacred plants throughout the retreat, such as Mambe (Coca), Tobacco (in its various forms – powder, paste, smoke), Sita (the bark of an Amazonian tree, and rapè (hosca).
Each plant has its own healing properties and purpose that we will have the opportunity to learn from.
Our 4 day, 3 night Ayahuasca retreat includes:
Transport from Puyo to retreat center and indigenous community where rituals will take place
Accommodation in simple cabins constructed traditionally using local materials such as caña guadua and straw roofs. Depending on availability, there are private and shared cabins and shared bathrooms. Mosquito nets are available in each cabin.
Meals – we offer a vegetarian breakfast at around 11am (Dinner is skipped prior to the Ayahuasca ceremony each evening.)
3 Ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 during each night of the retreat (8pm-5am)
Oversight by Taita Alejandro Ayuryü, founder of Alma Healing Center and certified practitioner of ancestral medicine.

Alejandro and the Alma team.
Alma Healing Center offers individuals and groups an exclusive, safe and authentic Ayahuasca retreat in Ecuador to experience the healing power of ancestral master plants including, but not limited to, Ayahuasca.
Our retreats take place in a small, Kichwa indigenous community about an hour’s drive from Puyo where guests stay in simple, locally-constructed huts and participate in numerous rituals with medicinal plants, as well as daily hikes and music, ensuring a close connection with la Pachamama, our earth mother.
