Trends / Spring Break

Why hit the beaches when you can spend spring break doing psychedelic drugs at one of the world’s most famous landmarks? Cusco is home to both the ancient Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, as well as a hot spot for Ayahuasca healing. It’s the perfect spot for students who love to travel and want to experience epic relaxation techniques.

The famed Inca Trail is a great way to kick off an exciting spring break trip. The path taken by the indigenous people from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu is one of the most visited historic relics on Earth. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also traverse the Vilcabamba trek, a series of Inca trails that pass through snow-capped mountains. This trail sees far less foot traffic.

When you’re done exhausting your body, it’s time for a little spiritual healing. Etnikas Ayahuasca Retreats offers incredible packages that put on a spiritual journey with an authentic Ayahuasca shaman. Note: Ayahuasca — a combination of the ayahuasca vine and the chacunra shrub — is considered a hallucinogenic drug and is illegal in the United States and United Kingdom, If you choose to partake, make sure it is administered by someone who knows what they’re doing.

There are plenty of retreats available, but Etnikas is easily the most popular. Check out its website to learn more about the healing techniques available and how to book your trip.
