Do you offer financial aid?

We understand a retreat with us is an investment in oneself which can take time to prepare for. Part of our mission is to help make this type of healing as accessible as possible for all those who seek it. As such, we have a general scholarship program as well as a BIPOC scholarship program for those committed to their healing journey, and who would otherwise be unable to attend a retreat with us. We ask that you only sign up for this program if this is the case for you, otherwise you will be taking a spot from someone who truly needs this support. These scholarship programs work on a lottery basis, please click the links for more information and to apply.

For select retreats at certain times of the year, we also offer partial scholarships. We have a partial scholarship application here for those who may be supported by this. If you don’t currently see any dates listed, check back at a later date, as we update this offering based on availability.

For those who are working within a budget, we also offer economical private tambo lodging options at our Playa Blanca, Costa Rica location. These tambos offer a lower-cost way to attend a retreat with us, utilizing shared bathrooms and showers, and no air-conditioning. To view more information about this lodging option, select an available retreat through our retreats page here and select and appropriate start date on the calendar in order to see available lodging options and details about each accommodation.

Additionally, while we normally ask for 50 – 75% deposit in order to secure your spot, we evaluate payment plans on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us at for more information if your situation warrants additional assistance.

If you are a veteran, Soltara partners with VETS, Inc and the Heroic Hearts Project, a non-profit organization which offers financial aid to veterans of war wanting to undergo ayahuasca treatment.
