Firstly, before joining the ceremonies, in any case, do some background checks to ensure that the shaman you are enrolling is ethical, legal, and respected.
Ceremonies can be organized in local and private centers in countries where Ayahuasca is legal.
Although there are many alternatives in this regard. There are issues that need to be considered which affect the prices of ayahuasca retreats.
Programs vary between all-inclusive or extra-cost. Therefore, your research should take full account of what you get for your money.
Many people travel abroad to Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Brazil to join the Ayahuasca ceremonies.
First of all, if you’re trying to minimize your flight costs. When you buy your ticket, it is important to purchase flight costs.
If you are already in Colombia, Peru or a nearby country, you may not need to fly. In terms of routes, you have several options for buses.
Food, accommodation, possibly other plant medicines and various tour products like visits to local villages, sightseeing, hikes etc. are other expenses. And it depends on all inclusive or extra costs.
Many retreats are far away from other city, center, townships and therefore need to be all inclusive but are also extra prices they can charge for these services and a tourists desire to hike in the jungle etc.
Looking at the costs alone is a bit misleading as each retreat offers different things for the price. Some have transport included, others include activities and massage while yet others have mandatory doctor ‘checkouts’ for those attending and onsite medical help. Basically, finding an Ayahuasca retreat isn’t about price only. You need to find the place that is correct for your needs, wants and budget
