After pickup from Tulum you’re transferred to the sweat lodge where your ceremony takes place with a small group. If you opt for a personalized experience with your private party, your tour includes round-trip transport from your hotel.
Begin around the fire with an introductory talk from the ‘temazcalero,’ a shaman who will guide you through the Maya purification ritual. Enter the temazcal and feel the heat of volcanic stones in the darkness. Aromatic herbs and resin from the copal tree, commonly used to relieve symptoms and ailments, help put you at ease and cleanse the body of negative energy.
Using mud, honey, aloe vera and refreshing teas, you’re guided through four intervals of increasing and decreasing heat accompanied by songs and musical instruments to restore curative powers.
After your 1.5-hour session, take a cold plunge and eat seasonal fruit with provided water. You’ll be transferred back to Tulum refreshed and renewed.
