More about the accomodation and food:
Nestled in lush tropical landscaped gardens, The Vine Center has numerous spacious and comfortable bungalows. Each bungalow has a panoramic view to the jungle and are surrounded by flowered gardens. You can enjoy sitting on the balconies, or relaxing in a hammock. Each bungalow has a private bathroom with hot shower, sofas, hammocks, 2 single beds or Queen size bed (for couples), mosquito nets, ceiling fan and are serviced daily by our staff. We also have one air conditioned bungalow which is available upon request. Retreat participants are expected to share these double-occupancy bungalows. The sharing is part of the fun! But, if desired, single occupancy bungalows are available at an additional cost for those individuals who require privacy. Additionally, we have dormitory style accommodation for five people that is situated next to the pond. This comfortable and beautiful space has a large shared bathroom.
SustainabilityHow we ensure sustainability:
At the retreat centre we grow our own ayahuasca vine and Chacruna plants and the tea is made here on the land with much loving care and attention. The Spirit Vine centre is devoted to ayahuasca and the spirit of the plants permeates through the land and everywhere in the centre.
Local CommunitiesOur engagement in local communities:
The nature of our not-for-profit center is philosophical, mystical, spiritual, educational, and cultural. All income from the retreats goes toward the upkeep and maintenance of the grounds and facilities, creating employment for locals and forest conservation projects including the planting of thousands of native trees on the land.
