Experience a deeper side of Mayan culture on this outing where you will enjoy the privilege of practicing two ancient rituals with a local shaman. First, the cocoa ceremony, where you will smell, feel, and taste raw cocoa, which the Mayans called “drink of the gods.” Then, experience a traditional temazcal ceremony, which takes place in a natural sauna made from volcanic stones and involves four stages of ritualistic purification. Enjoy some light refreshments while you rest in a hammock afterward.
At the beginning of the tour, you will go to a Maya ranch. There will be waiting for you a unique experience: a mysterious cocoa ceremony – Drink of the Gods, as it was called by the ancient Maya. The main advantage of cocoa is the enzymes of happiness contained in it, as well as a large number of microelements that improve the body’s resistance. The ancient Maya believed that during the ceremony, people can communicate with spirits and Gods, heal from illnesses or solve a complex life problem, we can get in touch with our personal wisdom, we connect with the love that resides in us, we get in tune with nature and the Universe. It is a way that helps us to open the body and the mind to experience the soul. Local shamans still practice this ritual. After this delicious experience, a purification ritual in the “house of hot stones” which has survived to our times will give the perfect ending to this day. Temazcal – An ancient ritual, guided by an Indian shaman that has always been a source of health for the people of this land.
