    What to Expect
    If you opt for a private temazcal experience, start by meeting your guide in your hotel lobby; for a small-group tour, make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Playa del Carmen.

    Travel to the “hot stone house,” a traditional lodge where the temazcal ceremony takes place, and meet the temazcalero guide, who will answer any questions you have about the cleansing ritual, and invite you to join a salute around the fire.

    After an initial cleansing ceremony with copal and herbs, enter the temazcal, which is heated by volcanic rocks believed to have purifying properties. The temazcalero will guide you through four cycles of increasing and decreasing heat, incorporating herbs, mud, honey, aloe, and refreshing teas. Soak up the aromatic, cleansing steam as you listen to live music and traditional singing.

    You can leave the temazcal at any time to cool off, or ask the temazcalero to adjust the heat for your comfort, and most sessions last around 90-minutes. After your time in the temazcal, lie down in a hammock for a quiet interval, with cool drinks and fresh, seasonal fruit.

    This temazcal tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or at the centrally-located meeting point in Playa del Carmen.
