Selva Madre

Ayahuasca Sanctuary

We are the number one rated ayahuasca wellness center on Tripadvisor for Iquitos and are led by Don Luis "Lucho" Rimachi, who has owned Selva Madre for almost 10 years
We are located in the jungle just 15 minutes outside of Iquitos, Peru by boat and we will help you on this powerful healing journey with love and care
Don Luis started his training at age 12 with his grandfather as a traditional Aguaruna shaman. Don Luis is now passing his knowledge to his sons (and daughter when she is ready)
