Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin with pickup at your hotel in Cancun, then travel to Dos Palmas, a small Maya community in the forest with a vibrant traditional life. Visit a local home to learn how historic customs are used to this day, then begin the orientation to the Maya purification ritual.

Learn to play the sea snail, a traditional instrument that you’ll use throughout the ritual. Meet a shaman in a ceremonial circle, then join a practice designed to unite the circle with the natural world. Enter the temazcal, a traditional steam bath that dates to pre-Hispanic times, and is used by indigenous peoples throughout Mezoamerica for health and spirituality. After experiencing the temazcal, walk through the jungle to an illuminated cenote for a nighttime swim in the cool water.

Refuel with hot chocolate from a natural Maya jícara drinking cup, which you may keep as a gift, then join a local family for a traditional dinner with soft drinks and water. This tour concludes with return transfer to your Cancun hotel.

Our tour guide, Ricardo, was excellent, very knowledgeable. The experience was authentic, and most importantly, a portion of the proceeds from the tour go towards a school for Mayan children to preserve the Mayan culture and language. Drink lots of water before you go. The sweat lodge - even though it's only 1/2 hour, is pretty warm.
