#4 of 169 Speciality lodging in Iquitos
Caya Shobo is a leading Ayahuasca healing centre nestled in a gentle jungle rainforest setting, just 45mins drive outside the historic Amazonian city of Iquitos, Peru. Caya Shobo closely follows the Shipibo tradition of healing. We work only with genuine Shipibo maestras and maestros who hold high knowledge of their ancestral traditions - in particular Master Plant Dieta healing. Caya Shobo is the only Ayahuasca Healing Centre in the world to have received endorsement from Coshikox (the Shipibo Konibo Xetebo Tribal Council) as to the authenticity of our medicine offering in accordance with the true Shipibo traditions. We welcome visitors of all ages and backgrounds who wish to experience the profound healing benefits of Ayahuasca and journey into an awakening of spiritual consciousness in the safety and care of highly experienced practitioners and the peaceful, secure environs of Caya Shobo. Caya Shobo has received thousands of western visitors since the facilities first opened 4 years ago and our healers have achieved profound results in treating numerous modern illnesses including depression, post traumatic stress disorder, certain cancers, and many other physical, mental and emotional ailments affecting the world's population today. ​ ​ Caya Shobo offers a variety of Ayahuasca retreats and package stay options for guests to receive healing services throughout the year. Prices include Ayahuasca ceremonies, plant treatments, accommodation, meals, airport transfers, laundry service, wi-fi. Standard rooms are shared double rooms - with own private bathroom (each guest has their own double bed). Rooms are simple adobe/concrete structures which allow airflow and coolness in the jungle heat, while providing protection from the elements, and are situated close to attractive ponds, gardens and common areas. Private tambos are isolated huts situated deeper in the jungle. No private bathroom but the feeling of being completely alone in the jungle.

I have been to Caya Shobo before (in 2019) and it was awesome. This time (August 2021) it was even more awesome. Ok, if you expect a five star hotel accommodation you are at the wrong spot. But this is not what Caya Shobo is about. The rooms are basic and clean, the food is perfectly adapted to your needs, nourishing body and soul because prepared with love ❤️. And this is one of the most specific characteristics you will find in Caya Shobo at every turn: Loving care for you. From the drivers who pick you up from the airport by motocar, to the gardeners and cleaners who maintain the grounds and buildings, to the guards who secure the property, to the women who prepare the food - even though you have long left Caya Shobo, you will carry the friendly, heartfelt smiles of all these hardworking people in your heart for a long time to come. On this strong, loving foundation, your soul work can mature to full bloom: Taken in hand by exceptionally competent and trustworthy facilitators, your well-being overseen by an amiable apothecary whose profound knowledge of medicinal plants is second to none, you will be guided into the ceremonies. And here you will meet - and this is the most important point for me - the best of the maestras and maestros, and only those who are exclusively dedicated to healing and helping people. (and not about manipulation and making money, because unfortunately there are such also in this profession). Loving, individual attention in small ceremony groups with the best shamans and compliance to high ethical principles - this is what the owners Beccy and Miguel ensure.

I always knew a trip to the jungle wasn't going to be a vacation and would in some way or the other shift my life. I had no idea just how much it would shift my sould and how grateful I am to have found this path in life. It took me 2.5 years but I finally had the courage to make the journey down south and face some major internal demons. The moment I got there, I was picked up by the moto + driver and brought straight to Caya Shobo. I was given a very warm welcome, given a detailed tour, and brought to my Tambo to relax. Fresh sheets, a clean towel and candles were waiting for me :) The food was very clean and delicious. Every meal felt so nourishing for the body. The water was clean and tea options plentiful. The staff and facilitator were so kind and made me feel like part of the family. The staff is so knowledgeable about the journey you embark on when you go to the jungle and provided endless support at all hours of the day and night. Since I went alone, having such a caring facilitator was absolutely critical and my healing would not have been as deep if it wasn't for his care and attention to the process. Caya Shobo, specifically Beccy and Miguel, have done an amazing job creating a sanctuary for self-healing and self-love. My experience was pure magic and one that doesn't end here, but really has just begun. Till the next time I see you Caya Shobo - thank you for showing me so much love ❤️

This most recent visit in February was my three visit in three years. I generally stay for 3 weeks and will be forever grateful I have discovered this center. The staff , volunteers and support system are fantastic. The rooms are clean and fitted with plenty of protection from the elements and the jungle insect and wildlife. The healers are top shelf and I will be returning for many years to come !

I stayed here in early 2018 for two weeks and had 8 ceremonies (my choice) although there were more offered. The hosts were helpful and the room was basic but clean and had bug nets and comfortable beds. The jungle sounds can be a little noisy at times but this healing center is beautiful. One Maestro in particular changed my life and his name is Walter. I have not suffered Seasonal Affective disorder or any depression since my time there and I am saving to go back. I met wonderful people and felt safe as a solo female traveler.

We arrived in Iquitos and there was a man already waiting for us to take us to Caya Shobo. When we arrived at the retreat they immediately showed us our room which was nice and clean with mosquito nets around the beds. They cleaned our rooms and bathroom frequently and made the room up with clean sheets,fresh towels and floor coverings. The food we ate was excellent and was specifically prepared to coincide with the plant diets. There was always enough food to eat. The beds in the Malowka were super comfy with fuzzy comforting blankets. The Malowka was cleaned daily. The Maestro's were exceptionally well gifted in the Icaros and I felt immediate changes when they sang to me or the group. I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD a couple years ago due to child hood trauma, addiction and alot of other trauma along the way.Thanks to the Maestro's at Caya Shobo I have life changing results and have found peace in places I never thought possible. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The othe travelers were all on same healing journey and we got to connect with them on a deeper level if we chose to during sharing time, or our free time. Caya Shobo is a great place to go to heal and we plan on going back as soon as we can. Also, the plants prescribed by the Maestro's have a deep impact on self and you can continue them when you leave. Caya Shobo is a place for healing and heal it does. Thank you for reading, Lisa Eimer
