Find Out All About Antique Mexican Traditions via a visit to a Temazcal Cancun

Experience the Mayan culture at its fullest, as we transport you to the heart of the jungle to experience one of the most antique Mexican traditions. Visit Temazcal Cancun , a type of sweat lodge which is used during ceremonies of care for purification of the body, to look after diseases or to improve health.

On this tour, you will have the opportunity to experience an authentic ceremony of the ancestral Mayan culture, offered by the chaman of the Mayan community. Visit the circle of sea snails, where you will learn to blow in sea snails to ask permission to Mother Nature for entrance to the Temazcal. Taste the “balche”, which is a Mayan drink that helps to open pores – made by bark of trees, honey, water, of zacate and lemon. Also, learn some Mayan words to use inside the Temazcal.

Mayans believed that the Temazcal, with its shape of igloo, represents the stomach of Mother Earth – and people who enjoy the ceremony will feel that they have been reborn. Cap off the entire ceremony with a swim at a nearby cenote, and enjoy the amazing crystal clear waters.
