A lot has changed with Natures Hospital. They lost some key people and forced out the Jr partner who kept things running smoothly and kept Alfredo from taking advantage of guests. Please ignore my past review in 2012

He charges you with the help of his son (35 years old, student of law) for things you never receive, perhaps more so when you are a woman(?).

The rooms are full of mold and the beds are damp. They don't have enough food to feed you. I don't understand why not. They charge... More

Great trip. Very nice staff, simple but great food. Deep in the jungle but didn't have wildlife or bug issues as other parts of the Amazon. Best part of the stay was the Shaman. It is rare to find a Shaman as good, and as authentic as Alfredo. There were also plenty of other activities when not in a Ceremony.... More

Being about an hourish outside of Iquitos, Peru, this center is right smack in the Amazonian rainforest. Now, although the jungle here, itself, is not as filled with wildlife like many other parts of Peru, that does not take away from the beauty and majestic quality of the area. The center is nestled in the rainforest unlike many other centers... More
