We provide basic rental services, or more detailed event planning.

7 meters off the ground your guests will sleep with the birds, monkeys and full 360 viewing. Walk through the gardens to one of our common areas to enjoy hammocks, our library or lounge chair before food is served. Enjoy the tranquility of the forest or dip your toes in the creek. There are jungle walks, sandy-beach river swims, and our cultivated connections with surrounding indigenous communities. 

Please let us know what you would like, and we will let you know how to make it happen. Be our guest!

Menu/Cuisine

Simple breakfast - usually consisting of oats, chia seeds, shredded coconut, dried fruit, and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc) along with fresh fruit (banana, mandarin, apple, mango, papaya, pineapple, passionfruit, etc.) and eggs

Wholesome, nutritious, and cooked-with-love meals - often based on various combinations of rice, beans, quinoa, sweet potato, avocado, yuca, potato, squash, split peas, and lentils, with delicious locally grown veggies such as beets, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, green beans, peas, corn, celery, and various herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil, mint, oregano, etc)

We typically will serve only two meals on days of ceremony, as it is helpful to limit stomach contents when ingesting ayahuasca as it will increase nausea and likely distract you from deeper processes. That said, we often encourage people to discover their personal rhythms and practices, and many people suggest not being weak and lethargic during ceremonies due to low caloric intake. Accordingly, if you tend to have lower blood sugar and need more consistent meals we often recommend eating a banana a few hours before ceremony or something similarly readily digestible.

Accommodations

Our treehouses are always one of the highlights for our guests, and rightfully so. They were designed by a group of specialists from Canada (www.vivreperche.com), and were built by hand and handheld machinery onsite by our staff. They are circular structures that can hold three people with plenty of personal space, they are equipped with very comfortable beds with bug nets and all necessary bedding, night stands and shelves for personal storage, and lanterns for lighting in the evenings.

Directions

Easy access from Puerto Maldonado, where there are multiple flights daily arriving from Lima and Cusco. From the airport you will go to La Semilla cafe in the plaza de armas, where our community has a superfoods cafe outpost run by our community member Cassandra and other friends of Novalis. From La Semilla we arrange transportation for you, and it is about a 2.5-3 hour journey total (45 min taxi ride, 45 min boat ride up the Rio Piedras, and a 3km hike into the land)

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
