What to Bring

We are in a remote location not close to any stores. During your time at the center you should expect to stay here and be out of contact. If you show up without an item you can plan on doing without it for the duration of your stay.  To ensure a comfortable stay at the center and during ayahuasca ceremonies, you should bring the following items:


****  SMOKERS  -  Please bring with you all you need to get through your stay. We will not fulfill any requests to get you cigarettes. You are welcome to walk to the village 2.6 km away to buy what they have available.

*** Please do not bring malaria pills. They are incompatible with ayahuasca, and are not necessary at our center. Malaria is not a problem at the Hummingbird, nor do we have many mosquitos.

*** Do not bring any kind of cold or cough medication as they are dangerous to take with ayahuasca.

*** Please do not use headlamps as your only flashlight. They routinely end up shining in other people's faces, and also into the moloca when people are returning from the toilets. Headlamps are very good to have for reading at night, but are not a good choice for ceremony.
