The price of an ayahuasca retreat for 7 days with 3 ceremonies can range anywhere from just a few hundred dollars all the way up to around $7000!


Why is there such a big difference in price? There a few things to consider:







 You might also notice that overall, the price for an ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica is more expensive than similar retreats that are offered in Peru or even Ecuador or Mexico. This is because Costa Rica has a much higher cost of living that retreat centers must consider when determining their price. Many camps in Peru are completely off grid, have no electricity or internet services. 

Also, a lot of places with lower prices take more participants to offset their costs and you may end up in a ceremony with 50 - 100 people!

Acoomdations play a big role in price as well. As I mentioned before, if a center is taking a large number of participants, its likely most accomodations will be shared. If you want a private room or a retreat with an intimate group of 10 or less, you'll have to pay more.


For excample, you may find a retreat in the $500 range but chances are its shared accommodations or camping, shared bathrooms, and a very rustic location with a high participant to facilitator ratio.

Even in the $2000 price range, you will often be looking at shared accommodations for a week-long retreat, although the number of participants to facilitators is usually lower.

When you get into prices at $4000 and above, it's usually considered a 'luxury' retreat and accommodations so you pay a premium to have pampered services. 

New Life Ayahuasca tries to find a balance in our prices so that our retreats can be accessible to people from all walks of life.

. Our prices are $2500 for a 5-day retreat or $3000 for a 7-day retreat. 

We offer private and shared rooms, private bathrooms, and our retreats will never exceed 12 participants.



New Life Ayahuasca was formed in 2014 by Matthew Mormello and Jeanae White. They met in Costa Rica by chance, attending the same ibogaine treatment facility for opiate dependency.  After ibogaine, they continued their journey of personal healing by participating in ayahuasca ceremonies.


Through the power of plant medicine, both Matthew and Jeanae were able to completely transform their lives. They transitioned from lives consumed by depression, hopelessness, and misery to a life of beauty, joy, and overwhelming love.

Empowered by the medicine and enchanted by the beauty of Costa Rica, they both risked everything to establish themselves in a foreign country while rededicating their lives to helping others. 


It is with a deep and humble respect for sacred plant medicine that the vision of New Life Ayahuasca was born. 


Costa Rica is arguably the most beautiful country in the world.

Our wonderful locations in the mountains offers the perfect climate and tranquil atmosphere for an ayahuasca retreat. 

The abundance of nature supports an individual seeking to expand and enhance their spirituality and connections to life.

We are located in San Ramon, about an hour from the capital of San Jose and SJO airport. Our facility is situated on 20 acres of land filled with lush vegetation and nature trails to discover.
