About Iboga Wellness Center

Founded in January of 2014, Iboga Wellness Center has been in operation longer than any other shamanic, traditional Bwiti Iboga retreat in the Western Hemisphere.

Iboga Providers

Our providers have been initiated in Gabon, Africa, and trained by a 10th Generation Gabonese Bwiti Shaman. The ceremonies we hold are rich in the spiritual tradition and teachings of the Bwiti people. Levi has been involved with iboga for the last 13 years and served medicine for the last 8.

Our training allows us to create a safe container, from which Iboga can seek out and illuminate source truth that innately exists within every human being. Guests have the opportunity to study and perfect the Art of Living, which is the true Bwiti way.

Located in the Perez Zeledon region of Costa Rica, Iboga Wellness Center’s main retreat house is 9 bedrooms on a 4 acre property. The property has trails, lush plant life and beautiful views.

The Iboga Wellness Center Property

The 9 bedroom house is 5350 sq ft. and is plenty of room for our groups of 6 that come to see us. The property is a unique haven for rest and rejuvenation. Hang out in a hammock and watch the river down the canyon.

Property grounds are home to many species of birds and animals. The finca is alive and breathing. The IWC retreat property has more than 100 fruit trees, and many edible plants. Guests can take part in planting if they like.

Iboga Wellness located inland from some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. During the iboga retreat at least 2 trips to the beach are made.


Private, on-site chefs craft each meal with love and care, serving up locally-sourced, whole food, organically-minded creations that bridge the gap between traditional Costa Rican cooking and modern tastes. Any and all dietary preferences can be met, at each guest’s request.
