Doing Ayahuasca in Costa Rica, why?
Costa Rica offers the best scenario possible to attend to Ayahuasca retreats, and experience the benefits of one of the most powerful entheogens known. And we are going to explain to you why.
From the Amazon, to the Costa Rican Rain Forest
The Sacred Plant of Ayahuasca has arrived from the ancient and mystic Peru Amazonian jungle, to the heart of Central America, Costa Rica. In the 90’s it was directly brought to these lands by descendants of the Shipibo lineage, an ancient peruvian indigenous people stablished mainly on the Amazon rainforest. And here in Costa Rica, The sacred plant of Ayahuasca has found a new home, that potentiates its energy and power to a new level.
A Natural Sanctuary. Costa Rica is widely known for its commitment to conservation and sustainability, and as such, it has set aside a significant amount of land as protected areas. In fact, over 25% of the country’s land is designated as national parks, wildlife reserves, and other protected areas. This amounts to approximately 3.4 million acres (over 1.3 million hectares) of protected territory.
This is a remarkable achievement, considering that Costa Rica is a relatively small country, covering an area of just over 51,000 square kilometers. The country’s protected areas are home to an incredible diversity of flora and fauna, including over 500,000 different species (Around 4% of natural species estimated to exist on the planet).
That said, you will be able to heal and do the spiritual work you are looking to accomplish, as well as enjoy the natural wonders of the country that possess the highest density of biodiversity in the world.
A Rich Cosmovision based on Cultural Diversity
Costa Rica has a strong Aboriginal & Pre-Columbian heritage. Borucas, Huetares, Bribríes, Cabécares, Malekus, and Chorotegas, are some of the most important groups that habited this lands. Their cosmovision, beliefs, and traditions are still strong on rural areas were their descendants still are organized on protected communities, where they way of living remains intact.
We also have a strong afro-descendant cultural background, thanks to all the workers that helped during the construction of the Atlantic Railroad during the XIX century, coming from Caribbean countries like Jamaica and Belize. Limón (Province) is the heart of this beautiful culture, but thankfully their culture has been widely spread nationwide during the last decades.
Therefore, Costa Rica offers the perfect scenario to receive visitants from all across the world, and invites them to open their hearts through this warm and diverse cosmovision. You can check multiple testimonials from different visitors around the world on our Testimonials page.
