Temazcal, Mayan ceremony

Excursion in Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Tulum

Tour Price : $600-660 Duration : 5 hours Languages: English, Spanish, French (basic)

For visitors looking to immerse themselves further into Mayan traditions and ceremonies, I offers the Temazcal Excursion (Mayan Ritual Sauna) A spiritual experience, you are taken to the heart of the jungle to participate in a cleansing ceremony with a native Shaman, followed by a Temazcal to purify your soul. Temazcal is a tradition from the ancient Mayan culture. It takes place in a stone shaped igloo which represents the womb of mother earth and works with the four elements: earth, water, air and fire.

Once in the darkness of the igloo, heat is given off by volcanic rocks. Water poured on those rocks is infused with medicinal herbs. As your body gets hotter, this process will purify your mind, body and spirit. According to Mayan tradition, the Temazcal provides a deep detoxification. It increases temperature in our organs, helping to rebalance the minerals in your body, improving the immune system, eliminating toxins and helping to prevent disease. After the Temazcal ceremony you will cool off and relax, swimming in the crystal water of the cenote and complete your evening with a traditional mayan dinner.

The Temazcal Excursion combines a cultural and spiritual ceremony experience in a peaceful atmosphere, teaching you the traditions, beliefs and ways of life of an actual Mayan family. Welcome to the Mexico!
