La Luna del Amazonas

About us

La Luna del Amazonas is a local healing center run by maestro Don Guido Rimachi and his family.

La Luna del Amazonas means The moon of the Amazon, and during a full moon it will be clear where it gets its name from. On clear nights we have a beautiful sky and endless stars for you to enjoy from our star-gazing tower.

History of La luna del Amazonas

La Luna is run by two curanderos; Maestro Don Guido Rimachi and Don Benigno Dahua. The center was first opened in 1987 as the local village clinic by the Rimachi brothers, and used to serve mainly local patients. As time went on the word was spread, and patients from all over Peru and the rest of the world started to show up. Throughout the last 30 years people have traveled to Santa Maria de Ojeal for healing.

In 2015, Don Guido and Don Benigno decided to expand the village clinic into a full-service Ayahuasca healing center with private bungalows for visitors traveling abroad, wishing to stay many nights and focus on personal healing.

In 2016, the new facilities were opened with a different name, but the sacred Amazonian healing techniques remain. Our shamans work the traditional way with Ayahuasca, passed down through many generations.

Today, La Luna del Amazonas is both one of the oldest and the newest centers around. The center is traditional yet modern, perfect for those who want access to ancient healing in a comfortable environment.
