You’ll receive an explanation of the ritual the Maya people use to cleanse body and soul, and have the unique opportunity to partake in its curative powers. Learn about the symbols, elements and plants, including resin from the copal tree, commonly used to relieve symptoms and ailments.
Once you’ve sweated out your impurities, refresh with a cenote swim. Then observe women from a local Maya community as they prepare authentic dishes for dinner. You’ll learn to make your own tortillas before sitting down for a delicious meal.
