After the ritual is over you will be invited to typical Mayan dinner with a family from the community which take place deep into the rainforest. During all the time you are accompanied by a professional certificated guide who will will provide you with the detailed information about everything you see, taste and feel. The tour takes place in the evening hours and includes round transportation from your hotel.

The tour will start with hotel pick up. Then, you will arrive to the ecological reserve “Dos Palmas”, 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 to play the sea snail, which you will use during the ritual to unite to 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 to take energy and to relax.

The guide was informative, professional, attentive and I just can’t say enough to let you know what a great day we had. Smartest thing I ever did finding this company. Absolutely positive all around.
The guide was extremely nice and he was very informed and was happy to answer any questions we had. He led us through various activities at Chichén Itzá and throughout the day to keep us entertained. Would highly recommend this tour and also very welcoming for children as well.
Excellent all around!! Galo was our tour guide and he was incredible! Bus was large and had plenty of space for any souvenirs purchased and bags. All of the stops up to and including the Chichen-Itza was amazing and well worth it. Incredible experience! Highly recommend

An absolute must, the tour was awsome, the guide explanation were great, the purification ceremony a wonderful experience and the temazcal top ! Swimming at night in the cenote is amazing.
We loved this tour. This is not the typical “go to a restaurant and try different things”, it’s a cultural experience. Very educational and everything that we had was delicious. Our guide explained how the market worked and why it worked that way. Understanding and immersing yourself into a culture is what traveling is about, and that is what this tour does. If your looking for a taste of “real” Mexican foods and culture, this is it!
