Menu/CuisineAt Pisatahua we follow a traditional ayahuasca diet, while maximizing taste and nutritional value. We provide our guests fresh-organic-food from the Amazon. We never provide packaged, canned or processed foods. We avoid any simple sugars, hydrogenated oils or processed grains. Our food is “real” and locally sourced.
Much thought and preparation has gone into our menu. We place special emphasis on raw fruits, vegetables and juices. We incorporate healthy fats through nuts and seeds. Additionally, we provide filtered water to all guests in their rooms and common areas.

AccommodationsAll cabins were designed through the adaptation of local construction techniques to meet the needs of our guests. Our cabins maintain the rustic appeal of a jungle lodge, without sacrificing many of the amenities of a modern hotel. All cabins are secluded and extremely spacious. They are fully furnished with clean private bathrooms, washbasins and showers. Cabins have high thatched-roofs and sit one meter above the jungle floor.
Each cabin room comes equipped with 2 twin/or 1 super-king bed, shelving, solar-powered lighting, night-stands, an indoor hammock, a writing desk, chairs, and fresh drinking water. We provide fresh linens, towels and laundry service.
All cabins are situated facing the lake with enormous windows to maximize ventilation and views of the Aquicuana Reserve.
