Get acquainted with the pre-Hispanic Maya cultures of the Yucatan Peninsula during a shaman-led purification ceremony. After hotel pickup in Cancun, your guide accompanies you inside a type of ancient Maya sweat lodge called a temazcal.

You’ll receive an explanation of the ritual the Maya people use to cleanse body and soul, and have the unique opportunity to partake in its curative powers. Learn about the symbols, elements and plants, including resin from the copal tree, commonly used to relieve symptoms and ailments.

Once you’ve sweated out your impurities, refresh with a cenote swim. Then observe women from a local Maya community as they prepare authentic dishes for dinner. You’ll learn to make your own tortillas before sitting down for a delicious meal.

I search “temazcal near PLAYA MUJERES” this thing is 2 hrs away from here, even worse, we spent 1.5 hrs picking up people from many different places, all of them long distance among each other. The experience is overrated and there were big spiders inside the temazcal, food portions were very good and there is no chance to ask for anything else, not even freaking sauce. The only good thing are the guides, all of them are freaking hot and speak multiple languages.
