|6000 feet up in the remote sierra Mazateca and 40K population|
Made the 6 hour drive north, with two like minded explorers, to the land of the Mazatecs, to find a curandera to guide us through a psylocybin mushroom experience. On often steep and winding 2 lane highways. We each had our reasons and visions were had.
Web research ferreted out two prime local curanderas, both elder mazatec women. I went with Ines Cortez Rodriguez. You can find her above (and north) of the market. Standing on the markets north side street one could throw a stone up to her house. She is on the street parallel to the market street and just north of the casa de cultura.
Senora Ines Cortez Rodriguez
Avenida Francisco I. Madero #8
Huatla de Jimenez
Her fee is 1000 pesos and I gave her a big tip because she is a fine lady in a noble profession and does a super job in her guiding. My friends went with Julia Juliana and also had a fine experience but a bit different ceremony and trappings.
I stayed on the main square in the Hotel Santa Julia. Super clean, hot water, nice staff, and 280p a night (about $15.50 US at the current exchange rate). A five minute walk from Ines house.
Nice view from my room down the city slope. Soaring birds thermalled out over the canyon.
