“Never before have I been to a place with such a profound spiritual presence”

“Most Prolific Experience of my Life”  July 18th, 2017  by Erik A

“I could not ask for a better experience. Maestro was professional, wise, and kind. The staff were nothing shy of accommodating and informative. Never before have I been to a place with such a profound spiritual presence. The medicine was pure and gave me and everybody there exactly what they needed. I would like to send my greatest thanks and appreciation to all that helped make this journey possible. “

“The property is truly unbelievable; set in the jungle, along the boiling river, how could it get better than that?”

“So glad I came!” 11 July 11th, 2017, by IanbK
I was lost in the sea of different centers one can find online, and am so so glad I settled with Santuario. The property is truly unbelievable; set in the jungle, along the boiling river, how could it get better than that? The ceremony were absolutely beautiful, not to mention immensely powerful. The icaros were breathtaking, the food was great, my bungalow style room was real nice, and I could go on. All in a all, I cannot recommend Santuario more!!

“I expected something big but didn’t expect the life altering experience that I received.”
