About Mamaycuna.


Mamaycuna is a small, traditional Amazonian healing center situated on the banks of the Itaya river about half an hour outside of the jungle city of Iquitos in Perú.

We work with Ayahuasca and many other plant medicines in a traditional manner combining different spiritual teachings and practices from the various mystical schools.

It is the jungle home of Maestro Don Roman Castillo Pérez and his family, it has been a place of healing for many years and  is known as Mamaycuna; ‘Mother embracing her children’ .


Our mission.


To provide a safe and supportive environment for people who wish to do serious work on themselves at all levels, mentally, physically and spiritually.

To provide REAL healing for all patients, non messianistic and grounded at all times.

To offer treatment for diseases, injuries and illnesses; from depression, addiction and PTSD to cancer, hepatitis, kidney and liver disease among others.

To provide support before, during and after the healing/learning process. (One on One, Group, Integration, aftercare).

To work with integrity and provide a high level of patient safety and care (we are a member of the Ayahuasca Safety Association or A.S.A.)

To use only the best quality plants and materials to make all medicines made and used by us at Mamaycuna.

To support and help the local community.

We provide real healing and learning for those that are willing and ready.

Working with plant medicines is testing and difficult at times but the results are quite evident.

There is no magic bullet and each person has to work diligently on themselves daily to gain the most from their time with us.

Each medicine and treatment and/or practice should be used as a tool to heal, learn and grow, it is a process and requires discipline, honesty and patience.

We are on hand to guide and help you through the process at all times in our safe and secure environment and we understand the processes fully and will explain and clarify as needed and welcome questions.

We will be straight with you at all times and not tip toe around things. All in all we are here to help you heal yourself!
