Ayahuasca in Bolivia

The Bolivian Amazon

Pisatahua is an integrative plant-medicine and ayahuasca retreat, located in a remote area of the Bolivian Amazon.

Found in the heart of the Aquicuana Reserve, the 80 hectare center is situated in one of the most biodiverse areas of the world.

This idyllic setting provides a comfortable environment for those seeking a responsible way to explore the Amazon, while safely working with ancient plant medicines.

Plant Medicine

Pisatahua is locally-owned and managed by residents of the Aquicuana Reserve.

Our healers (Don Marcial and Don Rene) live onsite with their families. They are responsible and respected community members, dedicated to the shamanic path, with decades of experience. 

Our international staff is competent, professional and attentive.  They provide guidance and personalized assistance throughout this journey.

Integrative Medicine

At Pisatahua we incorporate a diverse range of plants and healing-modalities for an integrative approach toward holistic health.

We recognize the need for multiple interventions including dietary medicines, yoga, mindfulness, intention-setting, reciprocal relations and through a connection with mother-nature.

We receive a maximum of 8 guests per retreat to ensure each individual receives the personal attention they require on their unique path of awakening.


Guests receive fresh-organic-local food that follows a traditional ayahuasca diet, while maximizing taste & nutritional value.


Activities include ayahuasca ceremonies, guided nature hikes, canoe rides, floral baths, & meditation/ yoga classes. (All activities are optional).


The well-being of our guests is our number one priority and we operate with precise health and safety protocol.

Guests can choose to stay in lake-view cabins with private bathrooms and showers; or in isolation cabins located deeper in the jungle.


Pisatahua was sustainably constructed with locally-sourced, natural materials, while minimizing the removal of vegetation.  The center employs energy and water conservation measures and waste recycling programs.  Through our non-profit extensions, we helped secure the protection of over 20,000 hectares of Rainforest. 



We believe in reciprocity and are committed to partnering with our neighbors to support the maintenance of our land and traditions.  Proceeds from our retreat assist community development programs including environmental sanitation efforts, reforestation projects, and the provision of scholarships.
