Overview

We will transport you to the heart of the jungle. You will live a new adventure there and will experiment one of the most antique traditions of our country: Temazcal which is used during ceremonies of care for the purification of the body or to look after diseases or to improve health.

You will have the opportunity to live an authentic ceremony of the ancestral Mayan culture, offered by the chaman of the community.

Temazcal, with its shape of igloo, represents the stomach of Mother Earth. People who enjoy the ceremony feel a kind of rebirth.

You will discover the customs, the house, the faiths and the lifestyle of the Mayas since their ancestors until nowadays.

It was an amazing experience and Honestly feel reborn! Our guide was helpful, gave a lot of information and translated a lot of the ritual for us due to us not speaking spanish! Overall I can only tell that I’d 100% do this again!
