If the luxury of a five-star establishment is what you are looking for, Tambo Ilusion might not be for you. Tambo Ilusion is not a resort, it is more of a countryside home. Tambo Ilusion is a place for nature lovers. At Tambo Ilusion, guests sleep in "tambos", which are cozy rustic wooden cabins that are equipped with two very comfortable double beds and mosquito nets. Each tambo has a hammock hanging on its porch. The accommodation offers an electricity-free environment in the cabins, favoring the best ambiance to disconnect.

You will be provided with decent amenities such as clean and shared bathrooms, which are separate from the rooms and have flush toilets and hot water showers. Tambo Ilusion is dedicated to offer its guests a wonderfully rich experience at a reasonable price.

Striving for excellence

Tambo Ilusion is proud to share the award received from TripAdvisor: "Certificate of Excellence 2017". Tambo Ilusion has received this same recognition in 2015 and 2016. This award celebrates excellence in hospitality, and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.


As seen in National Geographic Traveller, this tropical nature reserve, operated by Johanne and Armando, a Canadian/Peruvian couple is ideal for a nurturing vacation. In 2014, Tambo Ilusion was chosen as one of Peru's top five yoga retreat centers in a publication of El Comercio. You are sure to enjoy your stay.

Johanne, Tambo Ilusion's host, is thrilled to share her passion and knowledge of plant based food preparation and yoga. You will experience time and again how wholesome food prepared with love and good intention is delicious, eye pleasing, and fulfilling. Johanne holds a vegetarian nutrition certificate and is a coach in psychology of eating. She worked as the cook in a hostel in Costa Rica for over a year as well as at Tambo Ilusion for 3 years. Johanne is happy to share her knowledge and passions with her guests. Johanne will teach you how to prepare and eat more plant-based foods and raw foods without the dogma and the fanaticism. Her goal isn't to convert anyone to vegetarianism but to encourage and inspire people to eat a balanced diet.

If you already follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, you might become savvier and come away with delightful recipes, as the possibilities of vegetarian dishes are endless. There's so much you can do with fruits, vegetables, legumes (beans, lentils and peas), whole grains, nuts, and seeds, which are all part of a balanced vegetarian diet. Come learn to transform these in delightful dining experiences that are sure to excite your palate and engage your senses.

The content of the cooking workshops within this retreat is informative, easy to understand, and digest. You will receive hands-on experience preparing food, practical tips and tricks, as well as taste delicious food. You will hopefully discover new foods like locro de zapallo, Johanne's vegan take on a popular Peruvian dish. You will learn to prepare healthy breakfasts, learn about super foods, sprouting, juicing, fermenting, dehydrating, making smoothies, nut and seed milk, raw desserts, and more. You will get to ask questions as you prepare meals from start to finish. The workshops are fun, relaxed, and practical.

Eating nutritious foods and exercising are two of the most important ways in which the actions you take on a daily basis contribute to our overall health and well-being. Thus, this program would not be complete without yoga practice.

Imagine six glorious days spent in a beautiful natural reserve, eating well, spending half the day in the kitchen learning the how-tos of vegetarian, vegan, and raw food preparation including raw desserts! You’ll meet Johanne in the kitchen at around 8:30 and will prepare breakfast together and take the time to actually sit down and enjoy our breakfast. We then get started with preparing the midday meal and will enjoy a sit-down lunch together. The second part of the day will be spent rejuvenating by practicing yoga and meditation, taking a nature walk, swimming in a gorgeous fresh water lagoon, lying in your hammock, etc. The evening meals which are prepared by Daniel, the new cook, will be served in the main house. Nights are meant to digest, rest, and observe the stars. You are sure to leave Tambo Ilusion feeling rested, empowered, and inspired in many ways.

Sample daily schedule

  • 08:30 Preparation of breakfast and enjoy a sit-down breakfast
  • 10:00 cooking workshop preparing midday meal
  • 13:00 Lunch
  • 14:00 Free time

A visit to a local market and a guided nature walk in Tambo Ilusion's protected forest trail is included in the program.

The market experience is one that should not be missed while traveling. You will visit a food market so you can be part of the local scene and get a feel of the local culture. You shall get to explore regional cuisine and witness the variety of produce offered. You'll see the locals, including what they eat, how they dress, how they relate to each other, etc. This little adventure will enrich your travel experience. You could practice your language skills, take a few pictures, and you might buy a few souvenirs.

Retreat locatie

Tarapoto, Peru

Tarapoto is the main gateway to the northeastern jungle of Peru. Located in the San Martin province of the San Martin region, midway between the high jungle and the Amazon plains. Tarapoto is linked to the upper Amazon and the historic city of Yurimaguas by a relatively well-maintained newly paved trans-Andean highway. The city is located in the valley between the rivers Mayo and Ahuashiyacu and is the center of the terrestrial networks and of the areas between the mountains, the coast, and eastern Peru.

Tarapoto is the main tourist hub of this part of Peru and is often used as a jump off point for excursions into the vast Amazon rainforest where diversity in species reaches its maximum expression such as in Tingana and Pacaya Samiria national reserve and for tours of the northeast of Peru including the Chachapoyas culture in Amazonas with its fascinating but not well known archaeology and history, the Gran Vilaya ruins, and the Kuelap fortress (Machu Picchu of the North).

Furthermore, beautiful landscapes, amazing waterfalls, lagoons, orchids, and adventure tourism such as river rafting and hiking in the tropical Andes and bird watching attract numerous visitors to this area.

Tambo Ilusion

Tambo Ilusion is a beautiful nature reserve of 14 hectares (34.6 acres) recognized by the Ministry of Environment of Peru as a private conservation area (ACP). The objects of conservation are its natural spring and the forest. Tambo Ilusion is also a guest house and retreat center which offers alternative lodging and retreat programs. Located in the rural area of Tarapoto in the San Martin region of Peru, Tambo Ilusion will transport you miles away from the city life.

Tambo Ilusion is a place for nature lovers and for people who appreciate country living and who want to experience living on a conservation area in the jungle.

Recommended Airports

Driving directions from Tarapoto

From Tarapoto, head towards El Distrito de la Banda de Shilcayo on the highway to Yurimaguas.

At kilometer 2.5 of highway to Yurimaguas (just past the entrance to La Laguna Venecia), there is a dirt road on the right. Take that dirt road.

You will soon come to a fork, keep right.

Tambo Ilusion is about 500 meters from that fork.

Arrival by airplane

Peru is currently a very popular travel destination so it is recommended to book early for international flights (to Lima, the capital) and domestic flights. %Airport taxes and fees are now included in the price of the tickets for international as well as domestic flights.

The flight from Lima's International airport (LIM) to Tarapoto (TPP) takes one hour and fifteen minutes. There are four airline companies that fly daily to Tarapoto (Star Peru, Peruvian Airlines, LATAM and Viva Air). The flight from Iquitos (IQT) to Tarapoto (TPP) takes one hour. Tambo Ilusión is located 15 minutes away from the airport. Transfers to and from the airport by mototaxi are included.

Arrival by bus

There are two bus routes to get to Tarapoto. One is by passing through Chiclayo, to get to Tarapoto is a 30-hour bus ride (approximately 1500 kilometers or 930 miles) on a good highway. There are two decent bus companies: Movil Tour and CIVA. To make the trip easier, look into the possibility of cutting the trip by stopping in Chiclayo, a coastal city, for a day or two as the route goes that way anyways. In Chiclayo, there are two important museums: Museo Nacional Tumbas Reales de Sipan and Museo Bruning. Getting to Tarapoto by bus from any town north of Lima along the Peruvian coast is relatively easy.

The other option is a bus route from Lima going through Tingo Maria. This route is about 500 kilometers less mileage than going through Chiclayo, and it takes about 23 hours. The bus goes through the Andes to get to the jungle; it passes through a city called Ticlio, which is at an altitude of 4818 meters.

Arrival by ferry

There is a three-day boat ride to Iquitos and Yurimaguas on the Huallaga, Maran, and Amazonas rivers. Once in Yurimaguas, take a bus to Tarapoto (2 hours and 30 minutes ride).
