The journey

You begin your journey to these sacred waters by flying or taking a boat to Iquitos, Peru, the Gateway to the Amazon. You are picked up at the airport and taken to the Iquitos port. Proceeding from there by speed boat, you cruise down the majestic Amazon River and stop at a small port, where a brief shortcut in a mototaxi by land takes you to another port on the Napo River and the village of Mazan. Then, you are transported to the lodge by one of our speedboats.  Only a few minutes upriver from this friendly village, you join the confluence of the Mazan River, a beautiful tributary that leads to pristine primary jungle.

For most of his life, Don Antonio has used the extensive knowledge and experience healing local natives.  This almost forgotten knowledge of medicinal plants and shamanism was shared by him to groups of researchers and students of ethnobotany, pharmacists and other disciplines.  During his many years working as a healer, he assisted prominent authors of research texts regarding medicinal plants of the Amazon.
