Come and experience the peace that comes from practicing yoga and meditation, eating well, breathing fresh air, detoxifying, letting go and becoming more connected with nature and your "Self".

The 'detox' process is simple but a diet and schedule must be respected, which can be a challenge while living a busy life. At Tambo Ilusión, we facilitate the process of this cleanse by offering a calm environment surrounded by nature and by taking care of you throughout the process bringing a hot lemon water tea to your balcony every morning, ensuring that you take your supplements, that your diet is adequate throughout the process, that you don’t drink anything cold, that you move your body through yoga practice, swimming, walking, and so on.

This cleanse is a simple and safe technique based on the consumption of fresh fruit extracts, superfoods, and a healthy balanced vegan and gluten-free diet to help eliminate toxins accumulated in the body due to dietary and environmental factors.

The focus of this detox is on cleansing the liver, the workhorse of the body. With the exception of the skin, the liver is the largest organ in the body and performs over 500 functions, far more than any other organ in the body. It is a vital organ that supports nearly every organ in the body in some facet. It is only the liver that can purify the bloodstream, and you only have one liver so come take care of your liver and yourself!

Your stay includes delicious healthy and balanced meals with no animal products, no fried food, no processed sugar and no wheat. Johanne will prepare fresh fruit extracts that are used in this purification process as well as homemade fermented food and drinks to help with digestion.

It takes a full 6 days to prepare the body for the liver flush by eating a diet high in alkaline-forming foods and low in fats to take the toxic pressure off your organs for the liver flush which is done on day 7 in the morning. Afterwards, you'll have free time to integrate all your experiences, relax and prepare for your journey home!

You will enjoy the Reiki sessions, nature walks, an herbal bath, a massage, yoga and meditation sessions and have plenty of quality time resting in your hammock or at the dock of the secluded lagoon. Being surrounded by lush green vegetation and getting in tune to the sounds of nature will further help the cleansing and relaxation process.

The yoga program for the detox retreat includes 4 gentle yoga classes including restorative yoga and yoga Nidra. A low-intensity practice to relax and create space in the body offers the right intensity when doing a detox treatment. The yoga classes include guided meditations and pranayama (breathing) exercises to help you feel better, more centered and connected to the earth.

The yoga classes are held in Tambo Ilusión's gorgeous yoga space which looks out on the surrounding natural beauty. The soundscape (the natural chorus of wind, birds, monkeys, insects, etc.) will transport you to a place of natural serenity deep within yourself during your practice; especially in Savasana, the final relaxation pose.

    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.

      Incredible Detox Retreat in the Serene Jungle

      Value for money
      I finished an incredible one week detox retreat with Joanne and Armando at Tambo Illusion, and it was a truly incredible experience. From the beginning they were so welcoming and made sure everything was set up perfectly in a nice peaceful environment for healing. The food was beautiful and I had the wonderful company of Joanne. She went above and beyond to make sure that I was doing well throughout the process and came up with remedies to help with my sleep. Whenever I asked her something she would have an answer or come back the next day having researched and come up with various suggestions. I felt so clean by the end of the week. I also had an amazing time on the beautiful property that they have restored over the years. Armando has so much knowledge about the land and various healing properties of plants in the jungle. I had a beautiful swim each day in the lagoon and had the time to be at peace in my own thoughts in the setting. What an amazing place and such beautiful people. I highly recommend going to Tambo Illusion for whatever your interests might be....health, nutrition, yoga, reiki, or even just to relax in such a beautiful place. Many many thanks to Joanne and Armando for helping me on my journey to a healthier life. II will be forever grateful.
