      Encuentro espiritual inolvidable

    Un lugar especial para vivir una experiencia introspectiva inexplicable. El anfitrión, Andy, es una persona con mucho conocimiento que con amabilidad y hospitalidad han hecho que la experiencia sea legítimamente espíritual. Estoy dispuesta a regresar pronto.

      Lovely Retreat

    Oh my goodness, I fell in love with Costa Rica at this retreat. The food, house, land- all perfect. Andres showed up around as well. It was almost fairytale like. I went with this resort as it is private and I did not want to be surrounded by strangers. I wanted to be able to focus on myself and not other people/energy. I fell in love with the country and will be back!

      Introspective journey

    I had a relaxing and amazing journey. Andres and his mother were soo kind. I will definitely come back again! The land is huge and I loved meditating on top of the hill. It felt like living like a local for a few days, which helped with the aya journey. No words can give justice to the amazing time that I had and for the amount of things that I learned about myself during this quest. Thank you again Andres, it felt like home in your presence.

      A special place for intimate experiences

    This is a great place for relaxation and experiencing sacred ceremonies with Ayahuasca. The nature around it and the hill are incredible. The level of service provided has high standards and they have a team of dedicated people, depending on the retreat that you book. I would strongly recommend booking more than one Ayahuasca ceremony to get more of the known benefits of the medicine and include more staff in the experience. If you book three they bring a quite special medicine musician for the last one from Costa Rica to literally make a concert with his guitar and songs about the elements of the earth, love, and humanity. This all feels that they are making a strong effort and are committed to providing a remarkable experience. My experience with plant medicine was very gentle and full of love that I am still feeling. It helped me understand most of my habits and have more universal thinking and acceptance about myself. Thank you, Casa de la Luz, for what you do. I felt very identified with what´s happening there. Big hugs!!

      A transforming experience

    I spend three nights in Casa de la Luz for a private retreat for me and my partner, this was our first time and we wanted to have a more accessible place than the Amazon jungle. The staff was very helpful and communicative all the time and most of them speak perfect English. The location is the typical big yard in Costa Rica, which features an antique style house with an open deck, hammocks, nice amenities, fresh fruit all the time picked up from the trees in the property and nature. They take you on this journey with the help of different tools and specialized staff. Andrés the ceremony leader knows how to work in the Ayahuasca ritual at his best and always providing nice and comfortable space to be. He is highly experienced in Ayahuasca ceremonies and has a natural empathy with the people quite rare to find, he really enjoys doing his work. I could feel that happiness and love are the two main things that encapsulate this place. The chef and food were great, healthy and balanced, using typical dishes from the country so you can have the Costarican experience as well. The ingredients are based on Ayahuasca Dieta and they offer other types of medicine. There was also a psychotherapist on-site that helped us prepare for the ceremony with dance therapy and special meditation sessions. This was very helpful indeed. Having that kind of support really makes the difference. I hope to come back soon and continue my journey with the help of these beautiful people. Thank you for everything.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
