2. 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. Upgrade your experience by including a visit to the Coba archaeological site.
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.
To finish off this special day, you can choose the option to visit the Coba archaeological site outside of regular visiting hours. This site is almost always free from many visitors at this time, allowing you to climb the Nohoch Mul pyramid and enjoy the evening views over the jungle in absolute peace.
