Private Coba, Tulum and Temazcal Combo Tour from Cancun
Then, you will be driven to Tulum, the archaeological site that is considered as an icon of the Maya culture in the Mexican Caribbean and the most beautiful of the Yucatan Peninsula. This ruin site is the only one located on the beaches of the Caribbean. You will enjoy the spectacular views of this place. Get the most incredible pictures of your trip at this unique place.
To culminate the tour you will experience the Temazcal a Maya ritual considered a source of health and energy. 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 shaman 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.
After the session in the temazcal, you can take a cold bath and then enjoy fresh fruit of the season and waters. Because of its interactive character, the length of the temazcal session varies, but it is usually 1.5 hours long.

Before the tour: On website, our tour was set to start at 8am, but got an email stating it was at 10am. When I inquired about this via email, they took awhile to respond affirming it was at 10am with no reasoning. On my arrival to Cancun, I called and their reasoning to change to 10am was because they wanted us to have a better experience at Temazcal. It is apparently better at night or when it is darker. During Tour: We had Carlos as our guide and Adrien as our driver. They were both amazing and our entire group felt safe with them. They gave us a run down of the day and even waited for us to get bathing suits from our rooms, which is needed for the temazcal. Carlos was also unsure why our tour started at 10am, he said they normally start at 8am because of the long day. We felt rushed through every site because we were trying to make our scheduled 4pm for the Temazcal. Carlos was very knowledgeable of the history and local workings of the entire area and all the sites. He even took us to a couple other spots outside of the itinerary. He knew all the perfects spots and angles for pictures. We had a group of 8 people. He kept us all in check or aware of what was going on. The Temazcal is definitely an experience for certain people. Half of our group really enjoyed while others were unable to do it. If you are claustrophobic I suggest you skip it. Overall a great tour, highly recommend it
