From Riviera Maya: Private Temazcal & Cenote Ceremony

3. From Riviera Maya: Private Temazcal & Cenote Ceremony

Take part in a traditional Temazcal purification ritual that includes a swim in a cenote. Immerse yourself and learn about the Prehispanic ritual and come out feeling cleansed and refreshed. Enter the sweat lodge and feel how your body and mind begin to release tension, stress, and toxins through the use of heat, steam, and infused herbs. Feel your muscles relax and your pores open up. The ceremony lasts for approximately 2 hours, with a number of breaks to let out the excess heat and to make sure you are feeling comfortable. Learn about the numerous health benefits, particularly for the skin, circulatory system, respiratory system, and immune system. Temazcal is also 'good for the soul', providing tranquility and a feeling of weightlessness, leaving you feeling relaxed and lighter than usual. After the ceremony, visit a nearby cenote to wash off all the traces of sweat and tension, completing the relaxation process. The cool water feels especially refreshing after the heat of the sweat lodge. You will also have a delicious meal of regional delicacies and fresh fruits prepared by a local family.

From Tulum: Temazcal & Cenote Private Experience

4. From Tulum: Temazcal & Cenote Private Experience

During our ceremony, you will enter a sweat lodge (an igloo-shaped hut). Once inside, hot volcanic rocks are placed in the center, and sage and copal infused water is poured over the rocks to produce steam. While every ritual is different, this ceremony lasts around two hours which includes a shaman-led series of thanksgiving and chanting. The ceremony begins outside the sweat lodge, next to where the stones are being heated. Standing around the fire we focus on our attention on our gratitude for the forest and earth. Kneeling and kissing the ground as a symbol of appreciating our Mother Earth (the temazcal represents the belly button and the rebirth of the participants) we pay respect to everything that makes life possible and we remind ourselves of what truly is important in our lives, releasing unnecessary weight and thus rediscovering our natural balance. After finishing our ceremony we visit a Cenote to complete our cleansing process as the Mayans used to do many centuries ago. When you are ready we strengthen our bodies with healthy, regional foods and seasonal fruit.
