La Punta del Paraiso

About us

We are a shamanic healing centre at the heart of the Amazon Jungle in Peru. We offer ayahuasca retreats, master plant diets & other healing services. To know more, please visit our website - www.lapuntadelparaiso.com - or Facebook page - www.facebook.com/lapuntadelparaiso.

When I first met Pedro, I was going through a rough period in my life. I felt disappointed, hurt, lost... When I went to the jungle, I was reminded of the connection I share with Nature and what was missing in my current life. I felt so much love coming from the people at the centre, from Pedro and from the medicine... It gave me the strength I needed to come back home and change/face what I needed to face. It made me wiser, stronger and a more aware/conscious person. I can really say it was a life changing experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who feels ready to grow and overcome their difficulties!

Venue Highlights

We are located approximately 44 km outside of Iquitos into the jungle. We are fairly close to the main road so it is easy to get from the center to the city if necessary. We offer Ayahuasca & San Pedro 10-days retreats with ceremonies of maximum 12 people. We also offer Master Plant Isolation Diets and other plant medicine treatments (kambo, ajo sacha, bufo, etc). If you make a reservation with us, we will take care of transportation from and to Iquitos. We have comfortable accommodation at the jungle with electricity and clean shower/drinking water. Our meals are prepared by a local cook and respect the Ayahuasca dietary requirements. Our shaman, Pedro Panduro, is an experienced medicine man coming from a family of 'curanderos' who has healed hundreds of people from all over the world.
