This wellness retreat in the Amazon is perfect for you if you’re looking to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and immerse yourself in adventurous new experiences. This journey with the Sápara people will introduce you both to their jungle and their way of life.
The 7-day trip will begin with 5 days at the Naku Healing Centre located deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon. You’ll be trekking through the jungle and clearing your mind as you develop a powerful connection with Mother Nature. Whilst journeying within Ecuador’s Amazonian jungle, you’ll certainly broaden your horizons as you encounter the rich culture of the indigenous Sápara people. The Sápara, known for working in the spirit and dream world, will instill within you a new perspective towards life as you undergo a mental and spiritual transformation.
For your final two days, you will be staying at the all-inclusive Baños in Ecuador. Here, you will spend a day unwinding in the thermal pools, meditating, and taking part in activities to help you integrate your culturally immersive experience. The following day, you will be given the opportunity to visit a community Cacao farm and partake in healing Cacao ceremonies whilst also learning about the traditional cultivating of the plant. You will end your day at the Tena riverside Shandia Lodge where you will be welcomed with open arms by the Kichwa people. By the end of the week, you’ll emerge as a refreshed version of yourself, inspired by the wisdom and wonders of the jungle.
Kickstart your wellness transformation under the beautiful blue skies and soothing sunshine of Ecuador. Throughout your magical journey you’ll be provided with all-inclusive accommodation and nutritious, vegetarian meals. You will, however, need to book your own flights to and from Ecuador.
