Your tour begins with hotel pickup early in Cancun or Riviera Maya. You will board a vehicle and be driven to Chichen Itza to arrive at around 10:30am. You will explore the site with your guide and stay there for about 2 hours. Chichén Itza was a center of commercial and religious power and is considered one of the most important vestiges of pre-Hispanic culture. See its main landmarks, including El Castillo. After a great time here, your driver will be waiting to take you to the ‘Sacred Blue Cenote’ of Ik Kil (“place of the winds), where you can swim in the waters of this natural well inside a cave covered with lush vegetation. Then, you will enjoy a buffet lunch at the cenote’s restaurant. (Drinks not included).

After lunch, you will head to the lodge where Temazcal takes place. Your arrival is programmed at 17.00-18.00 p.m., its best time to enjoy this unique experience. This experience starts with an introductory talk from the “temazcalero” guide, who will answer questions, followed by a salute around the fire.

After a small cleaning ceremony with the copal and aromatic herbs, you will enter the temazcal and start experiencing the heat of the volcanic rock and its red light in the darkness. The aroma of herbs and copal will give allow you to feel at ease, purify the body and create space to get rid of bad energies and purify intentions. Using aromatic herbs, mud, honey, aloe vera and refreshing teas, the temazcalero will guide you through four intervals of increasing and decreasing heat (by opening the door of the temazcal), and enjoy the curative powers along with songs and musical instruments.

In any moment, you can leave the temazcal or ask the guide to increase or reduce heat. This experience will allow you to find a space of positive and curative energies towards the body and spirit, as well as relaxation. All of this is done in a healthy and safe place.
Later on you will relax in a hammock and at the end of the excursion you will have a light dinner (tropical fruits and natural drinks).
You will leave Temazcal at about 7pm or 8pm and arrive in Cancun at around 9pm/10pm.
