Temazcal A traditional native
Mexican purification ceremony


This is the real hot spot in Riviera Maya. Temazcal is similar to a sweat lodge but it’s much more spiritual—cleansing your body, mind, and soul.

Ancient & Authentic

This ancient ritual has been practiced for thousands of year’s through-out Mexico and Central America. It takes place in a small adobe igloo, sealed in total darkness. Red-hot lava rocks are placed in the center and doused with water infused with local aromatic herbs, as an experienced Shaman chants and guides you through your therapeutic journey.


After sweating out all your spiritual and physical impurities in temperatures up to 104ºF, you’ll leave with a sense of inner harmony, enlightenment and rejuvenation.


  • Wear a bathing suit without zippers, metal clasps or buttons.
  • Eat a light meal before the ceremony.
  • Do not wear jewelry.

Temazcal can be too hot to handle for some. Do not participate in the ceremony if you suffer from any of the following: heart conditions, high or low blood pressure, epilepsy, if you are pregnant, or if you have an open wound or intense sun burn.
