Delve into one of the most closely held traditions of the Mayan civilization, Temazcal, in this cultural celebration of ancient Mayan life. If you like to relax, enjoy an occasional sauna, and experience an important component of the Mayan culture, this excursion is for you.
Derived from the ancient Aztec Nahuatl dialect word for "house of steam", Temazcal is a cleansing, relaxing, and purification therapy for the nervous system and promotes the reactivation of skin cells. The elimination of fat and stimulation of the blood vessels is activated in the bath, bringing also beneficial effects to the respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems. This is a holistic experience for men and women alike.
You will be led through the various phases of the process, from the recognition of North, East, South and West and their significance to the Mayans with the smudging ceremony. Then you will get into the Temazcal, where you will experience the four phases of cleansing and the five points of visualizations. After one hour in the Temazcal you will emerge reborn and rejuvenated.
As part of the cooling down process, you are invited to bath in the fresh water cenote only a few steps from the Temazcal or rinse off in a freshwater shower. Then feel free to enjoy and relax in a hammock while delighting in the fresh fruits and juices which are grown and harvested on the Xkan-Ha Reserve. As a departing gift each guest will be given a glyph as a necklace indicating the participant’s birthday according to the Mayan calendar.
Arrive to Xkan Ha reserve, in the middle of the jungle, where you will be welcome to lay down in one of our hammocks to:
