This was a one-of-a-kind experience. The communication with the tour company was good. Our guide was fantastic. She explained a lot about the ritual on the way to the site. They picked us up at our condo around 4:15 pm. It was about a 45 minute drive to the temazcal site in the jungle. We chose the small-group experience so there were two other people on our tour in addition to my two stepdaughters, ages 16 and 17, and myself. This is defininitely an authentic experience-not a touristy sample of the Maya ritual. The shaman's daughter, Ruby, performed the ceremony for us and did an amazing job explaining everything for us in English though the prayers and chants were in Spanish. I was a little nervous about how hot the temazcal would be and whether or not we would be able to stand it for the entire 90 minutes. It definitely was HOT, but you can lie down on the floor or lean against the wall for some relief. The ritual is broken into four doors . They open the entrance to the temazcal between each door which brings in some cooler air. After the temazcal we had some fresh fruit and juice and relaxed for a few minutes. We fell in love with the adorable little girl whose family lives at the temazcal site. I wasn't sure how my stepdaughters were going to react to the experience but they both absolutely loved it and seemed to get a lot out of it. We got dropped off at our condo around 9:00 pm. If you are in the Playa del Carmen area, I would 100 recommend this experience to anyone who's open to trying something new.
