Magia Verde is all about creating a space in the Amazon where visitors can relax and enjoy the beauty of the jungle and the river that flows through it. Many friends and volunteers have helped to shape Magia Verde into this special place in the Amazon. By using sustainable materials and a respectful approach to the environment, Scott has created a unique and comfortable “village” in the jungle primarily constructed out of driftwood, river stones and bamboo.
Magia Verde is also dedicated to preserving and sharing traditional plant medicines including Ayahuasca and San Pedro.
Brian Scott Charteris was born in Canada, grew up in South Africa and has traveled extensively, always imaging the sort of place he would like to take his backpack. Following an epiphany on his first ayahuasca journey, he packed up his home in Western Canada for a more fulfilling life in the jungle. After years of searching throughout South America he found a spot by the Misahualli River in Ecuador and knew he had found his new home: a magical place of running water where sandy beaches meet pristine rainforest.
