Full description
The tour will start with hotel pick-up. Then, you will arrive at an ecological reserve, a small Mayan community in the forest, that maintains its traditions. Here you will visit a typical Mayan cabin where you will learn about its old customs.

You will have an introduction to the ceremony of Mayan purification. You will learn how to play the sea snail, which you will use during the ritual to unite us with the nature. Meet with the Shaman around the ceremonial circle where you will be part of a spectacular ancestral ritual of purification and will have the unique opportunity to enter the Temazcal (old sacred steam bath). Walk in the rain forest until arriving at the illuminated natural well (cenote) at night to swim in crystalline waters.  It is an unforgettable experience to enjoy this moment, gain energy and to relax.

Hot chocolate is served in a typical Mayan jicara, which you will be able to keep as a gift. Enjoy a typical Mayan dinner with a family from the community, before going back to your hotel.
