Kapitari Ayahuasca Center

We teach people within local communities about ecological values, enabling them to interact with the environment so that ecosystems are protected and it offers the possibility that our people are involved in their own development, giving them simple and basic education to help them in the management of agriculture and animal care.

We establish a direct link between people who want a closer experience of life in the middle of our forest and thus assess the importance of caring for our environment.

We are committed to social change and the urgent awareness to educate the population of Loreto, which is turning a deaf ear to the global call to care for our resources and heritage of all.


To promote the care of the Biodiversity of our Peruvian Amazon, educating the public through awareness, instilling cultural values of respect for our environment and special care with our habits of life that often degrade our ecosystems.


Being an institution managing a cultural movement to establish training guidelines that can promote effective environmental education, to allow the formation of environmental awareness in the future means the hope of a more harmonious.

      One star too many

    I feel duped by this place. I would never recommend this Ayahuasca assembly line. I attended a retreat here in Jan 2015 and the first night I had a nightmare of an experience that was met with little to no support from any of the support staff or Don Lucho. At the time I felt I was just purging but realize now the bad energy around this place and the medicine here. I don't believe it's of pure ingredients and intent. On the second night a german guy had a psychotic episode that was handled so poorly. At one point there was no one looking after the 11 of that drank and were left to fend for ourselves mid ceremony. I woke up in the morning and along with my American friend and the German guy that freaked out we got out of there asap.

      Be careful

    I wouldn't say my retreat experience was a nightmare- but it wasn't what I expected. I did not feel like the staff at Kapitari truly cared how visitors were doing. I had a bad reaction to ayahuasca and no one seemed concerned. This is not a very nurturing place. If that is what you are looking for, look elsewhere.The facilitators were not into healing and were too busy on their own "trips" to notice what was going on. I can truly understand why someone died here. This is more of a business than a retreat. If you go, be prepared to fend for yourself.

  •   The most wonderful retreat - you will not be disappointed with the quality of care, setting, and love by 'from the sun'

    The two shamans, Don Lucho, and his son, Wagner, are really wonderful. They are healers and have a profound knowledge of many Amazonian plants. Part of your payment goes to developing the permaculture farm that is part of the retreat and some money also goes to the surrounding tribes. I originally planned on only spending one week at Kapitari but Lucho and the two loving, knowledgable facilitators recommended that I stay another week. I was given a special plant medicine following a personal consultation. Lucho and his family are the warmest people and made me feel welcome and at ease instantly. I could not imagine working with ayahuasca at any other place. The setting at Kapitari is beautiful. It is surrounded by lush rainforest and wildlife as well as a fresh water pool for swimming. Kapitari and the beautiful people I met there will always be in my heart and I will return someday.


Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
