About us

eco tour



A month long personalized Shamanic retreat is definitely recommended if you can spare the time to devote yourself to your healing work as you can reach much deeper levels of understanding and can achieve a more complete detoxification than would be possible in the shorter retreats. In a month, you may be able to move to the root of deeper underlying issues and address a strategy for future healing and recovery. Month long immersions involve ayahuasca ceremonies in addition to the possibility of working with other powerful teacher plants. Other plants will be determined by the maestro depending on your specific needs and what you wish to learn and achieve in your healing. A month will allow deeper work with challenging plants and more powerful results. Month long retreats can begin any time and can be extended if desired.

Travel and Pick up at Pucallpa Airport:

Santuario is an authentic traditional Amazonian plant medicine center situated off road in private property on  a highly unique geological site (a boiling river) in rainforest 2-3 hours outside of Pucallpa.

Venue Highlights

Situated on the famous "boiling river of the Upper Amazon," Santuario is a centre unlike any other in Peru for its unique beauty and magical environment. Here, the rainforest shimmers with energy and you will experience tranquility and the ability to go deep in your healing work not found any where in the world. Founded and run by the maestros and their family (Maestro Santiago Enrrique Paredes Melendez, his partner and wife Maestra Ayme Vargas, and brother Maestro Hegner Paredes Melendez) you will participate in authentic healing practices in the tradition of "vegetalismo" (plant spirit shamanism) in a safe and comfortable environment. Here the medicine is pure and powerful. Santiago Enrrique Paredes Melendez and his family have become renown in Peru for their knowledge of plant diets and Santuario has become the best place in Peru to commit to apprenticeships and long term, individualized study with Amazonian plant teachers.
