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.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey Casa del Sol is a must experience for those who feel the calling. Ximena and Santiago are true and respected shamans dedicated to helping every single person who comes to Casa del Sol. The experience is like peeling back layers of an onion to its core. In this case you’re peeling back layers of yourself, who you think you are including ego, patterns, traumas, emotions, and much more. Whether you are new to plant medicine like I was, or experienced, all the elements of this retreat from sweat lodges, to San Pedro, to Ayahuasca, to, Kambo, to breath taking hikes, to group sharing is truly truly special and can be a very transformative experience. The benefits are priceless as the experience provides clarity to who you truly are, who you can become, your purpose in life, your capabilities as human, what connects all beings, and more.

What I appreciated most about this experience is the one on one attention you get from either Ximena, Santiago, or any of the trained facilitators. This is because the group capacity is perfect, not too many people within a retreat. Ximena, Santiago, and family take everyone in as if they are part of their family. They genuinely support and care for everyone. I am forever grateful for everything they provided, their kindness, their support, their hospitality and their love for all.

Casa del Sol is rooted in deep and profound respect and love for pachamama (mother earth), ancestors, and the highest ideals of what it means to be human. I highly recommend Casa del Sol for everyone seeking a deeper relationship with self and all beings and more clarity around life purpose, consciousness, and the responsibility this awareness brings.

From the bottom of my heart, biggest thank yous to Ximena and her loving family. (And her dogs).

I went in lost, feeling alone and at a crossroads in life. After the retreat, I left with clarity, peace, love in my heart and most importantly, a soul family I can trust my life with. Ximena, Santiago and Mateo provide the guidance, wisdom, love and light every soul on this planet desperately needs. I sincerely plan on returning in the future.

If you hear the call from Mother Aya and want to do it in the safest and most loving place run by a family of trusted and respectful shamans, look no further

Love, light and abundance to all. Aho 💜

The family that you always had but you didn't know yet.

I'm sure among the most supportive, understanding, experienced, honest, real and love driven facilitators that can be found for this matter.

A place where to share a magical experience with other brothers and sisters you very luckily will be connected forever.

If you are thinking about plant medicine look no further. Casa del sol is pure magic. Santiago and Ximena have put so much care and love into this space. The ceremonies are each unique, special and life changing. The food is healthy and delicious and the mountains around are absolutely stunning. There is no better place to re-connect with yourself and nature.

When I went to Casa del Sol Vilcabamba, I had high expectations for the retreat and I thought I knew what to expect. Little did I know that this sacred experience created by Ximena and Santiago was going to change my life in ways I never thought possible. This experience exceeded all my expectations and gave me so so much more than I can put into words.

Ximena and Santiago are beautiful souls that serve others with their whole beings. They welcomed us with open arms, and shared so much knowledge, love and wisdom. I will forever be grateful to you both and hold you close to my heart.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart 💛

If you feel the calling to go to Casa del sol for your healing journey, follow that calling. You will not regret it .

Lots of love

This was exactly what I needed. Before the retreat I was feeling so stuck and struggling to deal with all my past and current traumas. I really didn’t know where to turn. I had tried so many different types of therapy and healing and still I was stuck.
Throughout the retreat I was able to find peace within, joy, and a new love for myself. I hadn’t felt much of any of those in many years.
Ximena and Santiago are truly amazing people and healers and the medicine was powerful and made with love. You can feel their dedication to the practice and to each individual participant. They made us feel held and supported every step of the way.
The land and space was absolutely gorgeous! Clean and tidy inside with all the amenities you need. The meals prepared for us each day were delicious and clean. Nourishing to the body and soul. Thank you Nati! The landscape was nestled between mountain ranges with so much lush greenery everywhere you turned.
If you are looking for a change in your life or to become more connected to your spirit and the spirit of the land, this is the place to go.
I am beyond grateful for this family and will most certainly be coming back.

Regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey, Casa del Sol is worth your consideration. The couple Ximena and Santiago are true shamans in the purest sense of the word. Every element of the Casa del Sol experience is structured to peel back the layers of who you think you are and reveal: 1) who you really are; 2) who you can become and; 3) the source of what connects us all.
Whether you’re new to plant medicine or an experienced psychonaut like me, the combination of San Pedro ceremonies, sweat lodge experiences, ayahuasca ceremonies, kambo, beautiful hikes, and community discussions are truly special, unforgettable, and potentially transformative. Casa del Sol is a dedicated family affair grounded in deep and profound respect and love for the land, our ancestors, and the highest ideals of what it means to be human. I highly recommend Casa del Sol for everyone seeking a deeper relationship with self and all beings and more clarity around life purpose, consciousness, and the responsibility this awareness brings.
