Vikara can arrange a wide array of additional services including:

 

  • Private Plant Medicine Ceremony - Ayahuasca and other plant medicines are powerful tools that address all aspects of a person’s existence (physical, mental and energetic), calling on the participants to embark on a journey of self-discovery in order to uncover the root of imbalances, understand ourselves and grow.

 

  • Temazcal -  The sweat ceremony is intended as a spiritual reunion with the creator and a respectful connection to the earth itself as much as it is meant for purging toxins out of the physical body.

 

  • Moon Sessions  - For Women only: Moon sessions are an ancient ritual that help heal, balance and activate your second chakra, cut co-dependent cords, harmonize your cycle and deactivate implants. Let your female goddess shine and experience a session with our therapist!

 

  • Massage- whole body massage with essential oils and Reiki.

 

  • Isla de la Plata Excursion- Isla de la Plata is a great opportunity to experience more of Ecuador’s diverse nature, observe the famous blue-footed boobies, and maybe see some sea turtles, dolphins and whales during the boat ride to the the stunning island (whale watching only from May to September). The day trip includes transportation to and from Puerto Lopez, the boat ride, lunch and a snorkeling session off the boat.

 

  • Horseback riding- Always dreamt of riding a horse at the beach? This is your opportunity! A guide will take you either on a stunning journey along the beach or on a scenic ride through the mountains with a beautiful viewpoint.
