Get to know the secrets of Mayan purification

Enjoy a pre-Hispanic ritual, special to clean the spirit and the body. Begin with a welcome ceremony with a shaman, your guide, at the ancient Mayan ceremonial center of Polé, surrounded by the jungle and an underground river.

Then, enter the temazcal, a round, low-ceilinged building that represents the maternal womb. Here, the four elements are unified in herbal vapors, created by the interaction of cold cenote water on volcanic stones.

Feel how these vapors surround your body and mind. Listen to the voice of the shaman, while a new energy invigorates you and replaces everything you no longer need.

At the end of the temazcal, complete the purification process with an immersion in a river pool with refreshing waters.

Renew yourself with the temazcal ritual at Xcaret!
