Chose etnikas as an option to do ayahuasca outside of the jungle in peru. Upon arriving to the facility the water was not working, which means the toilets would not flush. The first ayahuasca session I had was done in a house with no running water. Buckets were used to flush the toilet. This turned into a giant mess during... More

I will not go on about the ayahuasca experience itself as many other reviewers have already covered that what i will talk about is how my impression of the staf was soured at the end of my stay at etnikas. First off i paid 875usd for a 5 day retreat and only stayed 3 days. Was offered no refund and... More

I understand everyone is different so will have very different experiences in this ceremony. All who I had spoken to before had wonderful experiences, for me however it was utter madness - a tormented hell i thought would never end. All 4 of us in our group had traumatic experiences lasting 6 hours and will never touch it again (maybe... More

Just completed the 3 day retreat at Etnika's near Cusco, Peru (2 ayahuasca ceremonies). The facility itself is beautiful, peaceful, and surrounded by nature. The people that work at Etnika's truly are beautiful souls. You leave feeling like you are saying goodbye to your family. If you are considering trying Ayahuasca I 100% recommend Etnika's. You feel very safe and... More

I and a friend completed the 1-day ayahuasca experience on July 21, 2014. The nurse and an interpreter came to our hotel in Cusco the day before to complete a medical examination, questionaire, and to provide instructions for the event. We were picked up at the hotel at 7:30 am the next day and returned at approximately 7:30 pm that... More

Ayahuasca is more power than any mushroom or LSD. So I was very scared to try it even though people I respected over the years insisted I should. Finally after about a decade of hearing how mindblowing DMT is (the active hallucinogen) we gave it a shot at Etnikas and boy are we glad we did. Ayahuasca did not just... More

I spent three profound days at Etnika's retreat. If you would like to try for the first time or to continue your work with Ayahuasca, it is a very safe and beautiful place. The staff is very attentive, the shaman and the medicine are powerful. The rooms are cozy, blankets and heaters will keep you warm. There is a hot... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience at Etnikas was. The staff are warm, loving and professional and genuinely care for the well being of their guests throughout the ayahuasca experience, which can be intense and frightening. If you are considering an ayahuasca experience, look no further. I hope to be back in the next 12 months. I... More

This is the absolute highlight of my trip to Peru - it is the most worthwhile thing I have ever done. The staff and shamans are all incredibly warm and helpful guides who radiate love and wisdom. The retreat is beautiful and peaceful and you are kept warm and comfortable at all times. The Ayahusca is intense and at times... More
