The town of Vilcabamba

The Town

We are located around 12 miles (18 kilometers), 30 minutes south of the enchanting little old town of Vilcabamba. Being named the Sacred Valley, and also called the Valley of Longevity (one of the five official Shangri Las of the world) it is a popular destination for foreigners. Many come to visit and many come to live here permanently. It has been a Raw Vegan mecca and that has attracted many capable healers of all kinds, including local shamans who lead Ayahuasca and San Pedro ceremonies. This is so you don't need to feel like you will be way out in the middle of nowhere isolated from civilization, actually you will be out in the middle of nowhere located relatively close to some civilization. You can easily reach town on the best new highway in Ecuador in order to go shopping, eating out at a great variety of restaurants (some world class chefs have moved to Vilcabamba) socializing, partying, etc.
