Our temazcal is the real hot spot here in Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, prepare to cleanse your body, mind, and soul. Hey, who knew sweating could also be spiritual?
This ancient ritual has been practiced for thousands of years throughout 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, while an experienced Shaman chants and guides you through your therapeutic journey.
Experiencing a Temazcal will make you feel refreshed and revived. 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.
This Mayan steam bath ritual has so many benefits, besides detoxifying the body it also helps cleanse the respiratory system, aid recovery and reduces chronic fatigue.
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 sunburn.
