I booked the 7 day retreat with 3 ceremonies and some time at Machu Picchu in July for early August. It was a sort of a whim idea but after reading the reviews, I just had to go. With the unbelievable support and guidance from the Etnika's staff and the incredable work from the Master's, this 56 year old recently... More

The journey was nothing short of an amazing and transformative experience. The staff in place is professional, nurturing and caring and went beyond measure to make me feel safe and part of the family. For me, I left feeling reborn...all the grief and sorrow I carried just melted away. It's intense but so worth it!!! I'd totally come back again!!!

Staff and Shamans were always helpful and friendly. Especially during the ceremony, we always felt cared for and looked after. I recommend this place to anyone looking to have there first Ayahuasca experience as it is a legitimate, professional and safe place to do so. Also, one thing that Etnikas have that others don't as far as i know is... More

My husband (54yo) and I (43yo) recently completed 3 days retreat with Etnicas. It was our first trip to South America. This place is a jewel in the Sacred Valley. We will never forget our fantastic experience, will always hold the people we met during this trip dear to us. The online booking (Sandra), nurses (Michelle and two other ladies)... More

If you are reading this, the medicine may be calling you. This is certainly what happened to me. I had planned to do the Inca trail a year prior but only heard of traditional plant medicine a week before leaving and it sent me to Etnikas. Loving, attention to detail, true in spirit and tradition, safe and dedicated care. Michelle... More

You hear stories about some places where the conditions are bad and they stuff as many people as they can into each ceremony. NOT Etnikas. You receive individual attention and are well taken care of during your entire visit. These are life changing ceremonies and you should invest in a good center like this one. I'd give a higher rating... More

I only had the resources for a two-day retreat, which includes only one ceremony. I wish I had been able to stay longer as my feeling is that experiencing la medicina is a progressive undertaking. First you are deconstructed then built back up. I took the pre-ceremony preparation very seriously and for a few weeks before arriving had been maintaining... More

I was told about this experience by a friend who went. As soon as he told me, I was booking my trip that month. I was In Peru that next month and went by myself. I would have stayed if I could have. The Etnikas team was so genuine and supportive. Paco is such an incredible person, I cannot say... More

Etnika's proved to be a reliable, professional and caring place to explore Ayahuasca. I booked a 3 days retreat (2 ceremonies) and my main concerns were safety, logistics and quality of the experience. Safety: I was looking for a place that could provide me with minimum "western" safety standards, and I was completely satisfied with their service. Etnikas brings a... More

My experience with Etnikas was incredible. The multiple ceremonies, offerings, and the ayahuasca experience were all genuine, deeply spiritual and transformative. I didn't ddoubt the staff for a second. They were truly caring, very professional and yet very personal. In particular, having medical staff on hand was very reassuring. I would recommend this company to everyone.
