The Temazcal

An ancient ritual

The temazcal is a Maya sweat lodge dating back centuries to the pre-Hispanic era, a ritual of gratitude to Mother Earth and the Universe. This ceremony helps eliminate toxins, purify the respiratory and digestive systems, stimulate blood circulation, and many other benefits.

This ancient Maya tradition guides you through different levels of heat and steam created by a blend of volcanic rocks and medicinal herbs within a spiritual and introspective atmosphere that honors the elements and the four cardinal points. Afterwards, cool off in the clear, cool waters of a nearby cenote: a natural spring located in the jungle. Our guided temazcal sessions are available Tuesdays and Fridays (additional fees apply); book your session at the spa.
