If the luxury of a 5-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 Retreat Center, guests sleep in rustic and quaint wooden bungalows which have two very comfortable double beds and mosquito netting, its private bathroom with heated shower and a screened-in veranda where two hammocks hang for your enjoygment. Each bungalow has electricity as well as a solar lamp.

This is the perfect workshop for people who are interested in stress management, self-healing and personal growth with the added benefit of learning how to channel healing energy to help others. The ability to channel Reiki (spiritually guided life force energy) is then with you for life, and the more you work with it, the more you will be amazed at its inspiring power. Leave your doubts behind and jump headfirst into this life-changing experience. Anyone can be attuned to practice reiki and it is simple to learn.

A glimpse of the retreat

This retreat is a wonderful all-inclusive option that offers each participant the opportunity to soak in the Reiki energy and just "be" in order to become more in touch with this wonderful energy so that it can flow more freely through you and your life. Each participant receives two full-body Reiki healing sessions to experience the amazing power of Reiki themselves. Gentle yoga and guided meditation sessions, delicious healthy vegetarian meals, an herbal bath, a sunset equine-imity stroll where you will accompany Johanne to see their mare as well as being surrounded by the natural beauty of this nature reserve will assist you in your Reiki attunement process.

This program is for anyone who wishes to be introduced to Reiki in a calm and beautiful environment. It is possible to gain your first degree (out of three degrees) in a short stay with us at Tambo Illusion. You will be able to channel Reiki healing to yourself and to others before the end of this retreat. "When you heal yourself and assist others with their self-healing, you heal the earth. You do make a difference!" A quote by Laurel Steinhice, Channeling the Earth Mother.

Understanding Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, which promotes healing as well. It is a form of hands-on healing used to cleanse, balance, and heal while invigorating the mind, body, and soul. You’ll discover how to balance your chakras with Reiki. For those of you who have never received a Reiki treatment, it is a wonderfully relaxing and nurturing experience. A typical Reiki session usually lasts one hour.

Reiki is not taught in the usual sense; it cannot be learned from a book or self-taught but is transferred by the Reiki master to the student through the attunement or initiation (attune means harmony, and initiate means ceremony) process via a simple ceremony which is repeated at intervals over the course of the retreat.

What to expect

This is not just a Reiki course, this is the start of a very special journey. During the retreat, you will receive four initiations or attunements that literally "attune" you to the higher energy of Reiki to empower yourself as a conduit for channeling life-force energy for both yourself and others. Each Reiki attunement is a relaxing and beneficial experience.

The Reiki system of channeling universal vital energy is characterized by its simplicity. It is easy to learn and easy to practice. Currently, Reiki is practiced by millions of people around the world for its great benefits. Reiki can be performed in different ways. The receiver of Reiki can lie on a massage table, on a mattress, on the floor or sit in a chair. The receiver remains dressed during a Reiki session.

The energy of life

A Reiki practitioner, by using gentle touch can increase the life force energy which will facilitate relaxation and healing. The practitioner will act as a channel for the healing energy to flow through to the receiver. Although traditional Reiki involves "hands-on" healing, if you are uncomfortable with a healing touch, energy can effectively be sent into the aura from an appropriate distance.

There is an emphasis on practical experience throughout the retreat, as it is important that you develop your own individual skills and knowledge of Reiki. During the course, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing, as well as for treating others. One of the wonderful things about Reiki is that it starts with taking care of and appreciating yourself.

You will also learn to practice Reiki on plants, animals, the environment, and situations. You will receive two Reiki treatments, you will practice two guided auto-treatments, and you will give three Reiki treatments. Alongside Reiki attunements and training you will learn about the chakra system (scratching the surface) and more. You will leave this retreat a Reiki enthusiast.

Come spend quality time with us here at Tambo Ilusion where time is not measured by clocks but by moments.

Retreat location

Tambo Ilusion Wellness Retreat Center is very well located and is easily accessible. It is located less than 20 minutes away from the local airport and 15 minutes from the center of Tarapoto city, yet, when one enters the property, one feels totally immersed in nature.

As seen in National Geographic Traveller, 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). Tambo Ilusion is located in the rural area of Tarapoto, situated in the San Martin region of Peru (in the Amazon rainforest) where the Andes meet the Amazon offering spectacular views!

Tarapoto is the main gateway to the northeastern jungle of Peru, at an altitude of 356 meters above sea level, and it is 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 (2008-2009) "Trans-Andean" highway.

Tarapoto is the main tourist hub of this part of Peru, and it 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 north east 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 (the Machu Picchu of the north). Furthermore, beautiful landscapes, amazing waterfalls, lagoons, orchids, adventure tourism such as river rafting and hiking in the tropical Andes, as well as bird watching attract numerous visitors to this area. Tambo Ilusion is located in the Banda de Shilcayo district which is at the eastern limit of Tarapoto city. It is near the waterfalls of Ahuashiyacu, a main attraction of the area.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

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 (similar to Thailand's tuk-tuk) are included.

Arrival by bus

There are two bus routes to get to Tarapoto:

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 2 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 3-day boat ride Iquitos as well as a speed boat option - Yurimaguas on the Huallaga, Maran, and Amazonas rivers. Once in Yurimaguas, take a bus to Tarapoto (2 hours and 30 minutes ride).

Driving directions from Tarapoto

  • From Tarapoto, head towards El Distrito de la Banda de Shilcayo on the highway to Yurimaguas.
  • At kilometre 2.5 of highway to Yurimaguas (just past the entrance to La Laguna Venecia, a well-known landmark), 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.
