Bluestone Ayahuasca Retreats, Mexico

About us

We are a family, a tribe of the soul and we hail from all over the Americas. We’re from Venezuela, Argentina, Peru, Mexico and the United States. We work in English and in Spanish. The person organizing the retreat is an American who has lived for over 40 years in Latin America, the last 10 working with Ayahuasca in both Peru and Mexico. She speaks your language and with many of you she shares a culture.

Our ayahuasqueros are two couples, husband and wife teams. They have the compassion and wisdom that come from years of working with Ayahuasca. They trained with the Shipibo, the Amazonian culture whose principal medicine is Ayahuasca. They are savvy, committed and prepared. They are also musicians of the first water with an uncanny sense of what and when to play. Their fine musicianship lifts the energies of the ceremony to yet another level, enhancing and facilitating your experience.

The rest of us all take Ayahuasca for personal work and know what it means to go through a process. Some of us are healers. We are there for you as you need us. We are good companions for this journey, so whether you come as a novice or an experienced taker of medicina, you’re in good hands.

We ask that you come with a lot of good will, a dash of flexibility and a sincere desire to change. Good will and flexibility are indispensable companions for any foray into new territory, and taking Ayahuasca for the first time, at least initially, feels like moving into the unknown. Flexibility keeps things flowing and a sincere desire to change is the motivation that’ll bring it all together for you.

Change is inevitable, personal transformation is a choice. Make the choice

Venue Highlights

Retreats take place at a center sited for its natural beauty, and we work to keep the energy high and clear. The center is located in the heart of the jungle with bungalows, a pool and the traditional space for Ayahuasca ceremonies called a maloca. Our property is far from the maddening crowd and alive with the murmurings of Mother Earth; a stress-free environment that is energetically contained and sustained. Our retreats are designed to let you take maximum advantage of the medicine and the processes it brings up for you. You’re free to go as deep as you wish and we’re there to support you as you do so. We interact with you on your request. All accommodations come with en-suite bathrooms and ceiling fans.

Menu Types

  • Vegetarian


The optimum diet for working with Ayahuasca is vegan which we modify slightly with the occasional fish or egg dish. Our meals are homemade, right down to and including the tortillas. We work with regional fruit, vegetables and herbs in novel and traditional combinations. You’ll enjoy vegan tacos, gazpachos, vegetable soups, seawood wraps and more. Some light fasting on ceremony days is required.

*If you have special dietary needs, advise us and we’ll work with you.


Fly into the Cancun International Airport. The ride from the airport to the retreat center is about 40 minutes and we meet your plane. Google Maps: El Ramonal, Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

      Life Changing Experience, I am eternally grateful to Bluestone and their staff

    Hello all, I made the decision to visit Xochipilli Retreat Center (Bluestone) after reading a few reviews and ultimately talking to Sharon. She made me feel safe, confident and excited to embark on this journey with them. I could not of asked for a better location, staff and experience. Their accomodations were wonderful, the food was delicious (and super healthy) and it was well organized throughout. I cannot recommend them enough for this type of experience. As for the experience, I can honestly say that it changed who I am at a core level. I went to Cancun with expectations as to what might occur and what resolutions I might encounter. I never imagined I would leave with the gifts I was given. For the first time in my life I was introduced to who I really am and I was given an identity by Mama Ayahuasca that has changed the way I interact with the world. The “Mama” stripped me of fears that have been holding me back for so long, and illuminated a path for my future that I see so clearly I can almost taste it. I believe this allowed a quantum leap in my development, and I stand here today more confident than I have ever felt in my life. I wake up with a sense of purpose beyond my 9-5, and I go to sleep excited to continue the journey the next day. Simply put, my experience has turned me on to a level of living I have only ever heard motivational speakers talk about and I never imagined I would be there. I am eternally grateful for the work happening at Bluestone. They are wonderful people who follow through on their purpose to help people realize themselves. I truly believe that anyone who is willing to trust the Bluestone experience will leave that place different and better for having gone. - Julian Macias

      I Trust Them with my Life

    I just complete the Heart of the Jungle Retreat and words can not express what I feel. I have found my family tribe, who were there every step of the way as I learned more about me. They nurtured my gifts as I am highly sensitive to energy, and allowed me to step into my calling. They saw me and loved me and allowed me to be me in a very powerful way. I trust the staff with my life and that is a very important aspect when you are doing this type of work with Ayahuasca. I plan to do all my future Ayahuasca ceremonies with this group, and I will be back very soon. I can't say anything negative, it was all amazing and so very good. I love you all deeply and I will see you soon! xo Rena Wells

      Happier and grateful than never

    I have no more words than gratitude for this place, the people, each of them in this center are amazing and Im so grateful for the moment in which God and the entire universe put me in this place for my physical and spiritual healing. I experienced ayahuasca last year with them and for sure this was the most beautiful experiences I have ever had in my life,, but this place, Sharon, Sandra, Amina, Arturo they’re extremely loving and careful people! Worth it a million times to be there

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
