Who is this Ayahuasca healing retreat for?

The ocean retreat is created with water & beach lovers in mind.

It is ideal for those who have often longed during Diets/Ayahuasca Retreats to relax close to the water.

This retreat is for those who feel like they are ocean/beach people and see the ocean, the waves, and the flow of water as medicine too.

To be clear, this retreat is not for those who are looking just only for a beach holiday. This is a serious plant medicine retreat similar to what we offer in the jungle- a space to go deep, We offer the opportunity for transformational healing and life-changing experiences. Your commitment to working with strong plants and Shipibo Medicine still needs to be your priority and the primary reason why you choose to join us.


Peru Ocean Ayahuasca Retreat Accommodation & Location:

Participants will be staying in private huts on the beach. I first stayed at the lodge in 2017 with a friend while integrating one of the first longer dietas (samas) I completed. During that period of time, I enjoyed having a break from the jungle. Another time I spent almost one month there dieting and having ceremonies to continue my learning with a sacred jungle tree. This place was so comforting and supportive in my learning and healing process that I knew I wanted to create a True-Journey Retreat on the beach with the ocean in plain view.


Our accommodation is located on a sandy beach. The strong waves from the ocean punctuate the space with its rich vibration and ongoing movement.

​You'll be provided with a sweet and simple beach bungalow or room. Some of the huts have a private bathroom and some have a shared bathroom. The first people who sign up might receive a hut/room with a private bathroom. We will see ;-)

There is also a big swimming pool to take a swim and a small one to sit and relax below a palm tree roof.

Sometimes the waves are very strong and it might not be safe to swim in the ocean. The pool provides an easy option to jump into the water for a swim or just to relax, integrate, and have a soothing experience between ceremonies and deep journeys.


The venue is mainly built with the ecological materials of wood and clay. It is simple and harnesses an environment of creativity. The venue owner is originally from Spain and has expressed his creativity uniquely through the way in which he has built the space.


Where will the Ayahuasca ceremonies take place?


We have a very spacious Maloka. A typical ceremony building it is directly on the beach as well. Typically in September the weather is sunny, dry, and promises almost no rain. Often the scenery can appear desert-like. The long sandy beach invites you to take walks, do some exercises, or do some jogging in the morning or evening.


Whale Season in Peru

Between August and October, it is whale season on the Peruvian coastline. During this time whales pass through the area to swim south. It is a stunning experience to witness this and for me personally one of the most magical moments I’ve had.


Envisioning working with plant medicine, while on the beach, and possibly witnessing whale migrations evokes within me a sense of magical connectivity, healing, and deep learning processes.


Of course, I cannot promise the experience of seeing the whales, but usually, during this time of year, they can be seen from the shore.

The venue is situated oceanfront with a road passing behind the property.

This road extends along the entire Peruvian coast. If you know Peru, you know about it.

Although this is not 100% ideal, I like this place very much, as for me the stunning nature of the property and the beautiful sounds of the ocean waves outweigh the minor inconvenience of having a road passing by.

Retreat Accommodation Before/After:

I highly recommend arriving at least two days prior to the retreat start date so you can adjust to the climate and acclimate before working with the medicine.

After the retreat it is highly recommended to plan to take at least several days to adjust in a calm environment so as not to shock your nervous system. Post-retreat dieteros will find that they are more sensitive to stimuli, and it is important to consider post-dieta aftercare.

Guests traveling by air will arrive at the Tumbes airport. Tumbes is a city in the North of Peru. There are many hotels and Airbnbs around. 

Depending on your travel plans you can also travel from Lima by bus or internationally from Ecuador.

Personal note from Ute: Always in my life I have loved being in the ocean. Walking barefoot in the sand, jumping into waves and listening to them naturally carries me into a meditative state. When I particpated in my first Plant Dieta on the beach, having the warmth of the sun present, walking along the sand while processing my experiences, laying on the beach being massaged by the waves; this way of learning and studying with plant medicines just seemed so beautiful. I remember there was a certain ease and lightness with how the plant energies steeped into the energies by the sea. I’m fascinated by different natural environments and the unique powers that they hold. It is so interesting how the plant energies connect with us individually and how our learning processes are also shaped by the distinct nature of our environments. There is something about oceanic waves while sitting on the beach after ceremony and watching the stars. Or simply having the sounds of the waves nearby reminding me of the constant nature of flow. I love the prospect of new offerings in 2024 and this location excites me enormously. ​I enjoy offering our retreats in different natural environments that call to me, and where I also feel that I can offer you interesting environments to learn with Plant Wisdom. The jungle has a unique vibration. You are held in the density and sounds of the green and alive surroundings.  ​The mountains carry clear air, sprawling views, majestic locations for reflecting in the Apus, and inspire a different way of connecting to the earth. All these places offer their unique magic. ​Although the ocean and mountains are not the traditional Shipibo medicine setting, I highly value these different natural environments and how their energies interconnect with the Plant Medicines of the jungle. Beach life gives me a sense of ease, freedom, and lightness which combined with serious plant medcine work feels so wonderful. I am in a personal phase in my life where I want to invite more playfulness and ease; a lighter attitude mixed with deep dedication for healing is for me a balanced way of life. Preciseness in energy work is essential to me. To be clear and aligned while also creating space for ease and playfulness.

Do you have doubts ??? Unsure? This is okay and natural.
Maybe you like to read some of our FAQs.

How did you (Ute) choose the Shipibo Healer for the retreats?

With each of our Shipibo Healers I have done many months of Diets (Shipibo Plant Diets). I tested each of our healers by myself. I learned to trust each of them while I went by myself in deep own processes. By each one I felt guided and held very well over the years of working and learning with them. There were many challenges along the path so far and always I received support from them.
