”Authentic, Spiritual Ayahuasca Experience in a Safe, Clean and Well-Organised Setting"

Oni Shobo is an authentic shamanic center situated in a mature forest well away from Iquitos but easily reachable by boat. The property is large and well-organized consisting of a maloca and several bungalows and is now being expanded to include a day-room with kitchen and eating area. This area will likely be open by the time this review is published.

Each bungalow has a private bath and shower. This is probably the best feature one can find in such a center.

The proprietor and the cook went to great lengths to accommodate my diet and the meals were always abundant and satisfying.

Celestina, the shaman, knows her job. She is strong and will make you work hard but also achieve your objectives or at least make the Plant do so on your behalf. The Medicine is very effective.

Oni Shobo is a very spiritual center situated in a very natural setting where one can be at one with the forest. Both Jorge and Vera, her partner, do their utmost to ensure that the guests achieve their objectives. They also offer any additional logistical support that may be necessary.

I wholeheartedly recommend this center to anyone who is serious about taking an Ayahuasca retreat.

“Ráj na zemi”

Děkuji Oni Shobo za skvělou péči a plnění každého mého přání. Na čas, který jsem zde prožila, budu dlouho vzpomínat. Prožít mesíc na tak krásném místě, kde poletují motýli nejrůznějších barev a zvědavé opice přicházejí každým dnem blíž a blíž, je nezapomenutelné. Navíc, když celé dění můžete pozorovat skrze sítě vašeho tamba a hovět si přitom v hamace, je více než příjemné. Díky výborné domácí kuchyni si ani člověk v dietě nestrádá. Ochutnala jsem různé druhy ryb, které donášeli rybáři ze San Pedra čerstvě chycené, banány připravované na nesčetně způsobů a velké množství šťavnatého ovoce. Vzpomínat budu i na výlety do okolí, kdy jsme navštívili záchrannou stanici zvířat, motýlí farmu, pluli po Amazonce pozorujíce růžové delfíny nebo se vydali k obřímu prastarému stromu. Děkuji šamance Celestině za její péči nejen při rituálech. Děkuji za to, jak skvělá a hodná byla a jak mi dokázala pomoci. Děkuji Oni Shobo za skvělou práci, kterou odvádí a věřím, že se na toto místo ještě vrátím.

"I was really satisfied with the location, service, food, accommodation and organization"

The owners of the center were waiting us at the airport, took all our baggage and brought us comfortable by minibus and ship into the center. Our accommodation were perfectly prepared and cleaned. Shortly after comming were prepared tasty luch. All our wishes were satisfied as soon as possible for all time our stay there. I really love the place of the center in the middle of the jungle. You can comfortable enjoy the nature, butterflies, monkeys and sound of the forest.

Věrko, děkujeme Ti za spolehlivé služby, laskavou a láskyplnou péči a taky za to, že jsi našla Celestinu. Dalo by se toho napsat mnohem víc. Tato cesta rozhodně není cesta pro každého, ale u Tebe ji lze vyzkoušet s naprostou důvěrou.

“The best week of my life”

Oni shobo is a magical place!! I have never been so happy in my life as in the beautiful jungle. The tambos are very comfortable and clean. The managing people, Coco and Vera, took of everything care in the nicest, best way! Also all the other workers were very nice and efficient. If you want to visit the jungle and also explore your deepest, inner feelings, I can only recommend you to come to Oni shobo. I looking forward to the day of my return!

“Beautiful and safe Ayahuasca experience”

After going again through pictures here, I actually started missing the place again.. Beautiful nature and I saw they built floral sauna in this short time we were there. Vera and Coco came to pick us up and drove us to the retreat centre, which is a baby diamond hidden in the jungle. They are very warm and friendly people, but they also understand you need time for yourself to reflect and they don’t dig in you with questions. These are people you want to be surrounded with when drinking ayahuasca. They both went a great extend over to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. We forgot to mention in a visiotrs’ book how greatful we are also to all the maintenance, cleaning staff and the cook, who was despite the strict diet making delicious and varied meals. Our tambo was clean and equipped to the perfection. And shaman Celestina- what a wonderful woman!. Her chanting was so soothing and beatiful… She was also around during the day ( unlike other shamans who come for ceremony only and disappear immeditaly when it is over) and made us energizing floral baths. She has 38 years of experiences in shamanism, shaman is also her husband and her son. We trusted her completely and she was working very kindly with our energies. Our host were as mentioned before really friendly.. Coco comes from journalistic background and Vera is a farmacist, who decided to learn from the nature.. Her knowledge of plants and herbs is absouletly amazing. The whole experience was a peak of our journey to Peru. I advise Oni shobo to people who are seeking personal approach, to people who prefer to be treated like human being rather than just tourists. We will come back..
