Blue Morpho’s Shamanic Retreat Center
Blue Morpho’s Shamanic Retreat Center
is purpose built for ayahuasca retreats and shamanic plant dietas. Located in the jungle outside of Iquitos, Peru, near the Itaya River, this location has been Blue Morpho’s home since 2005 and continues to represent the roots and foundation of our plant medicine work. Surrounded by lush, vibrant rainforest and nestled on 180 acres of Private Reserve, our retreat center is an ideal location that offers an intimate ambiance for your ayahuasca experience.
Featuring common areas with a tasteful, comfortable layout that encourages community bonding, a staff of top-tier chefs specially trained for creating wholesome ayahuasca-friendly meals, and several activity spaces for gathering and sharing. There is also an extensive network of hiking trails, two meditation bungalows, ornamental gardens, medicinal plants and a natural swimming lake. Local architecture, natural spaces, modern amenities and artesanal touches help make your time with us as unique and comfortable as it is transformational.
As of June 2018, we are undergoing a construction phase that will last through the remainder of the year. This project will bring improvements to infrastructure, new activity spaces, increase the quality of our guest experience, as well as sustainable land use developments. These improvements will not be taking place during any scheduled retreats and will not impact the retreat experience. Please check back for updated information and images as the construction project finishes.

The Main House
The main house is the central hub for daytime activities. It includes a lounge area, where we hold interactive discussions on retreat preparation and orientation, navigating the ayahuasca experience, and preparing to cultivate the wisdom of the plants into your life. Guests often spend time here during the day reflecting, chatting among themselves, or enjoying the sounds of the jungle. The main house also includes the dining area, beverage centers, as well as the kitchen and staff work spaces.
The Ceremony House
The ceremony house is our sacred space where we conduct ayahuasca ceremonies by night, and it doubles as a hammock lounge by day. We also hold guided meditations and some of our group activities here. Guests enjoy spending time in the ceremony house resting and relaxing during the day, listening to music or doing quiet activities in preparation for the night’s journey.
Guest bungalows are centrally located, with bathroom facilities that are shared between four or five guests. Each private guest quarters includes your own mosquito net, furniture and shelving for your belongings, fresh, quality linens, and a lock box for valuables. We offer three accommodation options: single, twin share, and matrimonial. Rooms are serviced daily. Bathrooms are modern and clean, with tile floors, high pressure water flow and hot showers. Updated bathroom pics coming soon.
Blue Morpho’s retreat center is spread out over our 180 acre Private Reserve, with the central area containing the main buildings and guest bungalows. The center also features several staff bungalows and service buildings that support the upkeep of the property. Additionally, we have a natural lake for swimming, a lake house that we use for yoga classes, dance classes, and other group activities.
