Private Ayahuasca & San Pedro Retreat in the heart of San Pedro de Vilcabamba, in Loja, Ecuador. Casa Del Sol works with small groups to optimize the quality of your experience, and share the space as a family. Blessed with a beautiful location within the Valley of Longevity, we integrate ourselves with its powerful medicine; our retreats include walking through its mountains, cleansing ourselves in the waterfalls and in the river in front of our home. We make offerings, meditate, practice yoga, hold sweat lodges and plant medicine ceremonies to encourage this integration.

At Casa del Sol, I bathed in beauty, love and sacred respect for life in all its forms. The people, ceremonies, hikes, services and care that make up an 11 day Casa Del Sol retreat were, for me, transformative. They have shifted and shaped my after-retreat experiences of the 'real' world to see its beauty in new ways. Ximena and Santiago are profoundly beautiful in every way. We visitors are enriched by them in ways too many and too sublime to describe.

WOW. I don't know even where to begin. I had the honor of experiencing Casa Del Sol from 12/10-12/22 2020. It has officially been a week since my profound experience on this property. After sitting with the experience, I want to make something very clear, Ximena, Santiago and Mateo are all so dedicated to their work intention, how they hold ceremony, space and people on their property. My LIFE & ENTIRE EXISTENCE has changed because of these people and this retreat. To even try and write words to capture this awe inspiring event does not give this retreat or these people justice at all. I will be chewing on my experience for a good amount of time. One thing that stuck out was how every ceremony, every activity and every connection was specifically planned to help a clients intention towards healing as much as possible. Santiago speaks from almost half of his life dedicated to the way of the Andean people and the way of the Native Americans of the now US. This man has knowledge beyond his years and I highly recommend listening to every lesson this man presents, as it can profoundly change your perspective on life. He is a beautiful, strong man that perfectly emulates the masculine side of the divine. He speaks in power with knowledge of indigenous cultures and also has this ability to relate to all people participating in the retreat with his humor. Ximena as well completely emulates that of a divine goddess, feminine, mother and a person that is dedicated to their purpose. She literally blew my mind everyday of just being in her presence. Her softness, intelligence, and grace is just absolutely profound. Her willingness to connect heart energy with every person per group is something I will never forget. She held space for me in a ways I needed most. She will always be a figure that I look up to. Mateo is the son that is the oldest of their children. At a ripe age of 20, he surpasses most "intellects" in the US for understanding of the deep mysteries, present embodiment and maturity. A musical prodigy (my personal opinion) and a teacher at heart, his balance and focus helped me through processing and ceremony and I am happy to continue having relations with him. Writing this brings tears to my eyes of how truly amazing these humans are and how none of what I am writing even starts to capture them in reality. Years ago, I made a choice that had devastated my life for 4 years. I had held so much anger, trauma and fear and it changed my being and how I showed up to the world. I searched for therapy, which was somewhat beneficial. But being a plant person and steward of the Earth, working with plant medicine was something that called me. After this experience, for the first time in almost 5 years, I have found peace, within myself, with my traumas and with my life. I am able to love myself again. I do want to stress that this is anything but a vacation. At least that was how I looked at it. I had intense intentions and focus to heal from this experience and this is the mindset one should have going into these retreats. By setting my mind to intention and healing, these people helped me reach deep, through mentally painful and physically straining experiences. This is not for the light hearted and this medicine should not be treated as such. The amenities for the experience were perfect.The food was organic, fresh and local. The ladies who kept the retreat house and guest rooms were unreal amazing. The property itself is on a river, with somewhat of a permaculture atmosphere. The family also held beautiful space for people who had lost loved ones through authentic ceremony praising the four directions. I had found out that my husbands grandfather died the last day of our retreat. As such Ximena held a sacred circle to honor my grandfather with the family and group. Truly incredible. The relationships I have made will forever hold a place in my heart. I truly feel as though I have family at Casa Del Sol and in Ecuador now. I will be absolutely be back! MUCHO MUCHO AMOR!!

I am eternally humbled and grateful to have chosen Casa Del Sol for my first experience. I am honored to have met and be apart of this beautiful, powerful, spiritual, grounded family. Hands down the best thing I have done in/for my life so far. I arrived in need of deep healing. I left fulfilled, at peace, empowered, spiritually lighter, humbled, with many insights, and enlightened. I formed lifelong friendships and bonds I hold close to my heart. My journey has been very powerful and very deep. The whole way I felt guided spiritually and in good hands. They cater to your specific needs with love and care. Extremely cleansing, emotionally, physically, spiritually. The teachings I learned from the shamans here left me moving more mindful. More in tune. Some life lessons worth sharing from the shamans.. Ximena taught me..sometimes we feel that we need to constantly consistently suffer. That we cannot find the light, the love. We do not have to lay uncomfortable in our pain. Lighter days are ahead of you if you get up and don't be lazy. To open your heart and do the inner work. To never lose sight of love. She helped guide me to the light when I needed it the most. Such a strong, soft, loving women. I adore her admiration and love for pachamama. Santiago..a very wise, gentle, powerful shaman. He has much respect for others and the medicines. He said a lot of enlightening phrases during my stay. One is to be mindful. To give gratitude for where we put our feet everyday. His open heart has warmed mine up into opening mine. That love is everywhere. Connection. Mateo..their oldest son. A strong spirit and powerful soul. Highly impressed by his maturity and intelligence level at his age. He is on bright path to shamanism. Along with his parents, he also shows great gratitude to our planet. He taught me the true power of your voice and breath. How to be in tune with your body and highest self. More importantly, to scrape your tongue every morning.

So much to say about Casa Del Sol, it’s hard to formulate everything into a review. Santiago, Ximena, Mateo and their staff are amazing. They truly care about everyone that comes through their door and will do everything in their power to help you through whatever your reason is for coming to them. They have the ability to truly look inside of you and pull things out that shouldn’t be there spiritually. The whole property at Casa Del Sol also feels like a safe haven sanctuary for when you need to decompress after a ceremony or before to get into the right state of mind. From listening to, or getting in the river or walking around the property itself it is a fantastic place to be. I’m extremely thankful to have been a part of their work and grateful to be one of the family afterwards. Im looking forward to seeing their continued work on the property and seeing them prosper in helping others.
