Chontachaka Ecological Reserve

About This Center

The Asociación Civil Reserva Ecológica Chontachaka is an environmental, ecological and non-profit organization. Our objective is to work for the defense and conservation of the Amazonian forests and of all the beings that inhabit them.

The Ecological Reserve Chontachaka is formed by professionals, collaborators, volunteers and above all, by nature lovers. All its members have experience in fields such as ecology, health or education. They are people who for years and for different reasons have been involved in the wonderful world of the Amazon rain forest.

We always give the option of performing yoga, meditation and Tantra sessions. The places are specially chosen to connect with the environment. We also offer the possibility of encounters with Sacred plants through ceremonies by experienced healers.

According our ethic guidelines, all of the meals prepared in our lodge are vegetarian or vegan.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. 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.
