Essentially, the experience during this retreat is yours to create and is sure to be unforgettable!

This wonderful retreat includes 8 yoga classes held in a stunning yoga space which looks out on the surrounding natural beauty. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys and insects) will transport you to a place of natural serenity deep within yourself during your practice; especially in Savasana, the final resting pose. Yoga props and accessories are provided. There will be a variety of styles practiced during the retreat: Hatha, gentle, restorative, yoga Nidra, and some yoga flow.

Hatha yoga classes will be held twice daily with the morning session being an uplifting, energizing class and the afternoon session designed to calm and restore mind, body and spirit. Meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques) will also be practiced daily during class.

If you have little or no yoga experience, the classes will be adapted and modified accordingly. Those who are not flexible are ideal candidates to begin a yoga practice. There is no competition involved in yoga, least of all with yourself. Everyone works from their own body awareness giving the best of themselves.

Every day is different at Tambo Ilusión although every morning starts with mindfully sipping a cleansing and alkalinizing cup of warm lemon water on your porch watching nature wake up around you followed by a morning yoga session and healthy breakfast. Afterwards, enjoy a swim in the beautiful private lagoon, walk along the 1.4 km trail of the protected forest to explore and hug a tree, observe birds and monkeys in their natural habitat. Cleanse your aura by taking a “baño de plantas”, enjoy a Reiki session (Reiki is a wonderful way to relax, heal and sooth emotions, stress and anxiety. This non invasive therapy will nurture and nourish you deep within and give you the time to relax, be still and receive), color or journal by the lagoon or in your hammock, etc. You will also have the opportunity to take a stroll with Johanne and escort Ayla, our equine friend. We will stop at a viewpoint on the way to admire the stunning sunset (weather permitting) and Ayla grazing benefitting from both equine and sunset therapy; both known to be soothing for the soul!

Essentially, the experience during this retreat is yours to create and is sure to be unforgettable!

You will have free time each day to dedicate to no one but yourself in this lush tropical jungle because you deserve it!

You will be encouraged to keep a journal for the week. Suggestions and writing exercises will be provided to get you started.

    Internet access?

    At Tambo Ilusión, we live in a low electromagnetic field area and pride ourselves of offering a digital detox experience to our guests thus there is no Wi-Fi service available.

    To have some access to the internet, guests can plan ahead and make an arrangement with their cell phone supplier about an international plan before their departure for Peru or purchase a prepaid SIM card at the airport in Lima but the quality of the connection on the land is not great. Also, there is Internet service in town, a 10 minute mototaxi drive from Tambo Ilusion.

    At Tambo Ilusion, it is possible to send a quick email to your loved ones to let them know you arrived safely and to make your check-in the day before your flight.


    We are located in the Amazon rainforest at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level. At times there are few mosquitos and at other times, there can be a lot, especially at sun down. It is recommended to wear long-sleeved, light colored, loose fitting shirts and pants, a light scarf, and socks, especially at the end of the day when mosquitoes are more active. When going into the forest, it is highly recommended to wear clothing that covers most of your body, keeping as much of your skin covered as possible.

    Always carry insect repellent (biodegradable if possible).

    The incidence dengue in the Tarapoto area is extremely low. There are no required vaccinations nor the need for malaria medication for the Tarapoto area.  There is no malaria or yellow fever in this area.

      Johane and Armando are great hosts and will welcome you like a member of their family. Your journey will be definitely peaceful and relaxing with a extraordinary opportunity to swim in a private natural lagoon swimming-pool. Try Johanne's breakfast and you'll never eat the same after this rich experience. Authentic people in an authentic place. Only nature. A must-do !
