Many people come to Iboga House having experienced a plant medicine native to parts of the Amazon called Ayahuasca. Many people traveling to Central or South America are interested in visiting an Ayahuasca Retreat Center in Costa Rica and happen to find out about Iboga. Iboga and Ayahuasca have similarities and differences that many people agree on. A recent visitor who went to an Ayahuasca Retreat in Peru and then to our Costa Rica retreat center compared Ayahuasca and Iboga here. Essentially, everyone who has done the two plant medicines says that Iboga is a more direct and clear path to the truth, although for many Ayahuasca had benefits including removing layers, detoxifying, and beautiful insights.
