Carlos and Jessica, husband and wife, run Nada Brahma Healing Center in San Ramón, Costa Rica. The center is situated about 45m from San José’s international airport. Transfer to the center was a breeze, Carlos himself picked us up. The grounds are beautiful and serene, on top of a hill overlooking a valley vibrant with lush tropical jungle, the Pacific Ocean at a distance. Accommodation is adequate, and altitude helps keep pleasant temperatures day and night. It was my first time doing ayahuasca, and Carlos and Harold, who works with him, were conducive to a very loving and enriching experience. You feel safe and taken care of, so you can take time to look at yourself from a completely different angle using traditional medicine from the Amazon. You may come for the ayahuasca, but this retreat is so much more: a vegan detox week filled with tasty, healthy dishes; a digital detox giving you time to connect with others, contemplate nature and recharge yourself with a good night’s sleep; other traditional healing practices and medicines, like temazcal sweat lodges and kambo; nature walks to the nearby waterfalls, and if you are as lucky as we were, an outing to thermal baths at a nearby volcano. Really a once in a lifetime experience, well worth the price. I recommend it.
