Experience the adventure of a lifetime with our Temazcal tour, as we delve into the world of ancient Maya. This tour is more than just a visit to a sacred site; it’s a transformative experience that immerses you in the traditions and customs of this ancient civilization. Our journey begins with a visit to the “House of Hot Stones” where you’ll have the opportunity to participate in an authentic Mayan purification ritual, the Temazcal, led by a knowledgeable shaman.

Our professional and certified guide will accompany you throughout the tour, providing insightful information about the culture and customs of the Maya. We’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you to the ecological reserve “Dos Palmas,” a small Mayan village nestled deep in the rainforest. Here, you’ll visit a traditional Mayan cabin and be introduced to the sea snail, an instrument that will be used during the purification ceremony.

Step into the ceremonial circle and be a part of the spectacular ancestral ritual of purification. Enter the Temazcal, an old sacred steam bath, and emerge refreshed and rejuvenated. The Temazcal is a unique and powerful experience, where you’ll be surrounded by the elements of fire, earth, air, and water. The hot stones and aromatic herbs used during the ceremony are believed to cleanse the body and soul, leaving you feeling renewed and revitalized.

After the ritual, take a leisurely walk through the rainforest to reach a cenote, where you can swim in its crystal-clear waters under the starry sky. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, served in a traditional Mayan jicara, which you can keep as a souvenir. The cenote is a natural wonder, a magical place that the Mayas considered sacred. Swim in the clear waters and feel the energy of the place.

End the evening with a delicious, traditional Mayan dinner, shared with a local family. Taste the flavors of the Mayan cuisine, which is a fusion of ancient and contemporary ingredients. The meal is served in a traditional Mayan home, where you’ll be welcomed by a local family, and have the opportunity to learn about their daily life.

The tour concludes with a return trip to your hotel, making for an unforgettable night filled with history, culture, and magic. Join us for a Temazcal tour, a journey that will take you back in time and leave you with memories that will last a lifetime. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the ancient Mayan culture and experience the transformative power of the Temazcal.

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!
