The Fauna

We created a protected area so the animals are safe

Naturalia is a protected area of 25 hectares of rainforest. No one is allowed to walk in without being invited, and even less hunting or cutting trees.
During your stay here, you will be amazed by all the butterflies, dragonflies flying around. It is also very easy to spot beautiful frogs. We are lucky to have small monkeys passing by, up on the trees on a regular basis.
If you are lucky, we also spot sloths! They come down their trees by night around our facilities! We always ask our guests if they want to be waken up in case of an encounter.
The jungle is pretty alive during the night too. Don't hesitate to use your flash light if you here noises around your bungalow. It might be a sloth, monkeys, an ant eaters or an opossum....

The Flower Baths

A beautiful and refreshing cleansing ritual

The flower baths are made of water and amazonian aromatic medicinal plants.
You will have a flower bath before every Ayahuasca ceremony.
The purpose is to remove negative energy and attract positive energy.
The flower baths are prepared by the shaman, and he pours the bath's water on you, in the middle of one of the rivers running through Naturalia.
When it is done, you just have to air dry before getting ready for the ceremony!

The Flower Baths

The Flora

You will never see a tree or a plant the same way

Just by pronouncing or reading the words Amazon Rainforest, we already feel the magic.
We will show you crazy trees with roots growing from up to down, trees which are considered as master plants, like shamanic teachers, medicinal plants, other master plants, what grow in our areas, natural hives and much more..
For those who have been trained, the rainforest is a giant pharmacy. We show you how one plant could be use for different purposes.
Welcome in the world of the plant medicine!

Meals and Ayahuasca diet

Or how to prepare our body for the best experience ever

Nowadays, it is unfortunately very common to eat processed food, processed sugar, very salty.
We sometimes drink a bit too much of coffee, sodas or alcohol.
This is the reason why the Ayahuasca diet exists. It is like a detox to prepare our body.
It is recommended to start it 3 or 4 days before the retreat, the sooner the better.
It consists in eating without salt, sugar, oil, milk and dairies, red meat, pork, chili, acid fruits, tea, coffee and alcohol.
All the meals you will eat here are respecting this diet and you will surprised by how tasty they are!
We will adapt them considering your own diet restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, allergies)

Shaman and Ceremonies

In the respect of the ancestral tradition of the Amazon

We work with maestros (shamans) who comes from a lineage of maestros. They are from the ethnicity Shipibo Konibo. They originally live in Pucallpa, one of the many provinces in the Amazonian part of Peru.
The Shipibos are considered as the guardian of Ayahuasca.
The maestro(a) leads the ceremony with their Icaros (healing chants). In the Maloca (temple), all the participants lay down on mattresses with pillows and blankets. They are monitored by a facilitator, always pending to react if anyone needs anything.
After the maestro(a) ends his/her Icaros for every participant, flute and guitar are played to bring a feeling of peace and relaxation before the end of the ceremony.
At the end of the ceremony, everyone is free to go back to their place or stay in the Maloca

A bit about us

Who we are and why is Naturalia special

Paula and Manu share the same vision of the world and their love for Nature.
They have been working in tourism in the most remote areas for the past 15 years.
In their past lives, they became Emergency first responders and secondary care certified then trainers. So they know how to take care of people in case of emergency, and most important, how to prevent it.
Manu entered the Ayahuasca and plant medicine world in 2015 while Paula was studying psychology.
Combining their knowledge and experiences makes them a wonderful team to help and support their small groups of participants (5 maximum).
The 2 of them makes a team who can speak 7 different languages.
They put all their love in building Naturalia and they are ready to share their paradise with you.

A bit about us

The Bathrooms

A neat and safe place to get freshen up in the Jungle

We understand and believe that bathrooms/showers are a place that must be neat, safe and of course nice!
So we combined rustic and modern style for your comfort.
Our shared bathroom area has 4 showers, 2 European toilets with flush, and 2 sinks.
Even if all our bungalows have private toilets, we added 2 more toilets in the shared area.
All the water coming out from the sinks tap and showers is fresh and drinkable treated water.

Our Furry Family

Because we love animals and we believe they should be happy too

We cannot talk about Naturalia without introducing you to our lovely rescued dogs and cat family.
We currently take care of 5 dogs. 3 of them found us while we were building and never left. And 2 others were found as almost dying cubs around the local native communities and we decided to take them with us and give them a happy life.
Let us introduce you to Gorda, Blanco, Chocolate, Mucura and Mei.
There is also Nube, our beautiful cat. She was a stray cat who was surviving in the streets of Iquitos. She is now living the life in the jungle.
Beside our own cat and dogs, we took as a mission to help other animals in the native communities. We sterilized, took care (by ourselves or sending to the vet) abandoned or hurt jungle dogs.

To Reach Naturalia, the easier way is to fly to Lima, Perú, and from there take another flight to Iquitos (1h30 flight). There are several companies flying daily, but we recommend LATAM airlines.
From Iquitos airport, you can take a motocarro (kind of tuk Tuk) for 20 soles (about 5 USD) to downtown.

We recommend you to arrive in Iquitos at least a day before the retreat starts.
