Blue Morpho Shamanic Ayahuasca Center Guest donations are given out to Iquitos locals and neighboring villagers. Each tour many of our guests donate spare clothes, first aid items, shoes and other necessities. Once a year, Blue Morpho holds an event where locals can come in and individually pick the things they need from the all of the donations.
Each year around the Christmas holidays, Blue Morpho Shamanic Ayahuasca Center sponsors the community holiday party of the local jungle village “La Habana” called the “Chocolatada.” A “Chocolatada” is traditionally celebrated with gallons and gallons of hot chocolate, sweet cakes, snacks and beverages, music and clowns for entertainment.
Many families in the local surrounding villages of Blue Morpho Ayahuasca Center and Retreat in Peru cannot afford to buy birthday presents and throw birthday parties for their children. This year, with the help of guest donations and support from the Blue Morpho team, the village children of La Habana were all able to celebrate their birthday’s together.
