Bufo Alvarius Sanctuary

About This Center

The idea of Bufo Alvarius Sanctuary was first visioned five years ago, when I found a cure for my depression and anxiety in this sacred medicine. At that moment I didn’t have the resources yet, but I clearly remember having set my intent of sharing this medicine, that later became reality.

Today I can proudly present and lead the whole team of dedicated professionals, who are glad to guide and serve you at the Bufo Alvarius Sanctuary in Tulum.

Our mission is to lead the transition of the human race to the age of Aquarius, by breaking the patterns of the old paradigm, and healing the world one by one.

Hoy puedo presentar y dirigir con orgullo a todo el equipo de profesionales dedicados, que están encantados de guiarlo y servirlo en el Santuario Bufo Alvarius en Tulum.

Nuestra misión es liderar la transición de la raza humana a la era de Acuario, rompiendo los patrones del viejo paradigma y sanando el mundo uno por uno.

Religion is belief in someone else's experience, spirituality is having your own experience ------- La religión es creer en la experiencia de otra persona, la espiritualidad es tener tu propia experiencia

      Most beautiful and life-changing experience!

    The Bufo Alvarius Sanctuary is such an amazing place surrounded by jungle and beautiful nature with pool, outdoor gym and bonfire spot and hammocks to hang around and to recover after a heavenly Bufo Alvarius Session. The ceremony is set up in a tippi tent which makes it very special, as you can feel the healing power of this magically place. The retreat came as well with the most delicious food (Yummy VEGAN options) and home feeling accommodation in nature optic. Everybody there is incredible friendly, open hearted and helpful, supportive and want you to have the best time! During my stay I also enjoyed a bone doctor, a massage therapist, daily wheatgrass juices, Kambo Healing Sessions, a day trip to a hidden jungle Cenote, a bonfire meditation and a jewelry workshop which all of them have been incredible amazing and organized by the bufo Sanctuary Team (especially Andrew). I just can say if you are looking for a place to heal, transform, hang out with friends with delicious food or just to let your soul bounce, this is the magical place to be! ❤️
