11 days Ayahuasca and Sanpedro Retreat on the beach of Ecuador

About This Event

Plant medicines have been at the core of human health care as far as human history dates back. The indigenous Amazonian tribes consider the plants to have spirits, and those spirits to be the source of great power and healing. The plants help us guide towards understanding how to free ourselves from internal blockages and connect to the energy and essence that lives within us. Simultaneously, plant knowledge reconnects us to the humility, intention and integrity that underlies our existence.

At Vikara, we strive to provide a safe space for participants to continue their journey of transformation and experience the ancient wisdom and healing potential of plant medicines.

The nearest airport is José Joaquin de Olmedo located in Guayaquil City.

To come from Guayaquil you have 2 options:
· We can arrange for our driver to pick you up at the airport for an extra charge (some of our retreats include transportation)
· You can take a bus from the bus station.

Taking a bus from Guayaquil:
Take a taxi from the airport to central bus station in Guayaquil (may cost between 3 to 5 dollars ).
At the bus station, you have to go to the C.L.P (Cooperativa Libertad Peninsular) and ask for a ticket for a bus DIRECT to Olón. There are many buses to Olón, but only de Direct one could bring you faster.

The bus ride ends exactly at the Olón´s bus station. There we will be waiting for you :)
