€121,86

Mexico inherited a long list of invaluable traditions from Prehispanic times, some of them are still very present today like the Temazcal. Let those exceptional and unique traditions heal and purify your body and soul in a way you never experienced before.

Your tour begins in the heart of a jungle in a Mayan community. Dive into their traditions, their beliefs and their daily life.

Afterwards, it is time for the amazing purifying ritual of a Temazcal. The chaman of the community will perform the ritual with you. This ritual bath consists of water vapor of aromatic and medicinal herbs and takes you to contact with yourselves and the fundamental elements of nature through songs and prayers.

A Temazcal is healing on the all levels – the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Reviews

  • "Surprising experience"
    We never heard about this before, but were so surprised when we took the tour. We wanted to do something out of the ordinary and really Mayan. This tour was incredible. You could talk to the community and see how they have lived their beliefs for centuries. The Temazcal was an eye-opener - you will be able to open up to yourself so much in this ritual - it was just incredible!

  • "Off the beaten track"
    We enjoyed this program a lot as it is not the normal tourist attraction. We could engage with the people of the village and try some of their tortillas. The ceremony was well planned and done. I could imagine this ritual going on like this for centuries. Really unique experience!

    The experience was authentic and interesting. Normally I wouldn't think Mexico has so many different cultures that are still alive today. Drink lots of water before you go - The sweat lodge is pretty warm.
