Ayahuasca Retreat in Costa Rica

New Life Ayahausca is one of the longest standing ayahuasca retreats in Costa Rica. Over the years we have worked hard to develop compassionate retreats options that encompass a range of healing modalities for the highest therapeutic value. Our belief in quality over quantity can be seen in many different aspects of our 5 and 7-day programs.
We offer small groups in an intimate setting with no more than 9 participants per retreat. Private rooms are provided for every guest, emphasizing the importance of having a safe personal space to process and integrate the experience. The retreat price is all-inclusive, covering everything from airport pick up to the ceremonies, meals, waterfall excursions, and more.
Matthew, our ayahuasquero has been a student of the medicine since 2014. He continues his training every few months in Peru, completing traditional plant medicine dietas under the guidance of his teacher. Following the Peruvian tradition, our ceremonies are offered in complete darkness, guided by Icaros, or medicine songs, and are accompanied by other instruments such as the gong, guitar, drum, flute, kalimba, and singing bowl.
In addition to the ceremonies, we also offer Kambo, Yoga, and Massage as complementary therapies. While Matthew drinks that brew at every ceremony to work with the energy of the room, there are always 2 assistants available as non-participants. His wife Jeanae responds to the women, and Jason responds to the men, assuring everyone feels supported in the experience.
