About
TEMAZCALl have many physical benefits FLUSHES OUT TOXINS Sweat helps to push out toxins — a catch-all name for generally harmful bodies that enter our systems. Getting rid of them can help to improve your overall well-being. CLEARS SKIN The steam produced by pouring water with herbs over the hot rocks helps to flush out impurities in the skin, clearing the pores and creating a smoother look. Steam rooms could also help to treat acne. SUPPORTS WEIGHT LOSS Increasing the amount you sweat can help you get rid of water weight. While not a cause for concern, water weight can cause bloating and be uncomfortable. MENTAL BENEFITS DECREASES RISK OF DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMER’S Sitting in a sweat lodge is understood to decrease the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study published in the scientific journal Age And Ageing. RELEASES MENTAL BURDENS Finally, many temazcal ceremonies involve deep contemplation akin to mediation. “It’s a very ancient ritual, to be healthy, to be balanced, to stay calm in our minds.”

This was the real deal. I was concerned that this experience was going to be touristy and watered down. I am pleased to report that it was absolutely not a tourist show. The ceremony was authentic and educational. The English translator was very helpful to explain what our shaman was telling us. If you haven’t been vaccinated this experience is not a good idea. It involves 6-8 people in very close quarters breathing the same hot steamy air for about 90 minutes. But if you are vaccinated I highly recommend the experience for the cleansing and the cultural education.

I highly recommend attending this Temazcal ceremony! I went into this not knowing much about Temazcal but ready to dive in. I left having learned about its roots and having a powerful experience. You can tell everyone running the ceremony are just genuinely good human beings and deeply devoted to the ceremony. Come ready to look inward and challenge yourself, but also know everyone there will make sure you’re feeling comfortable!

The Temazcal was outstanding experience. The place is cozy and well taken care of, truly an oasis in bustling Playa del Carmen. Jonathan our spiritual guide was outstanding, striking a great balance between introspection and keeping things light enough to enjoy the experience. It felt cleansing and refreshing for both body and mind. Afterwards they served delicious fresh cut fruit, Jamaica water and guacamole - overall a great experience, can highly recommend!

The temazcal ceremony was such an interesting and positive experience. We took a cab farther into the town and arrived at the gate. We were greeted by a lovely Dutch woman who spoke English and Spanish. She was our translator and seems to be the guide. Two of the young shamans were preparing for the ceremony tending the fire we sat.in a covered porch area and chatted and my fiend and I got to know the guide and the other couple in the group. The ceremony was about an hour and a half and was in Spanish. There were hot stones brought in and placed in the center with deer antlers and water was splashed on them to create steam. Drums and singing were used in the ceremony of the door was closed and it was dark and got very hot. There are four parts to the ceremony and the door was opened between each on to cool down. You could lay down and out your head on the stone floor if you got overheated and felt like you needed to. I did several times but was able to complete the ceremony. You sweat buckets but feel so refreshed and light afterwards, emotionally and physically. It is an amazing experience and I would recommend it. It is not for the weak or if you are heat sensitive, over weight of not in good health, I would definitely not do it. As it gets really hot and uncomfortable at times. Afterwards, you take a cool shower to close your pores and are offered cucumber water, fresh fruit and gorilla chips and guacamole. This is such a neat experience and one I will always remember. I am so glad my friend took me.

Todos son muy amables desde el momento en que llegas. Me hacen sentir orgullosa de ser mexicana y que las culturas que hay en mi país sigan vivas, pues Xilonen y Coacoatl son aztecas originarios de CDMX con conocimientos Mixtecas y Toltecas, y que a parte haya tenido el privilegio de vivir ésta experiencia con ellos, es maravilloso! Su vibra es impresionante y hermosa! Lo recomiendo ampliamente! René nos llevó en su carro hacia los hoteles y el transporte! La comida súper sana y deliciosa! Gracias otra vez por lo que dan y lo que logran que las personas sanemos!

Everyone is so nice since you arrive there. This is a very nice opportunity of seeing more what’s Mexican culture about. People are real Aztecs and teach you about Mexica and Toltec culture. Is really a privilege seeing them keeping alive this ritual, make me so proud of being Mexican. This experience was amazing! Their vibes are so impressive, beautiful and peaceful! I definitely recommend this experience! René drove us to the hotel and to the transportation station, the food and the drinks are healthy and delicious! Thanks again for what you give and what you achieve in every person for our own healing and detox!

Absolutely amazing participating in temescal ceremony, a must do while in playa! The owners take such good care of you and put their hearts and souls into what they do. They also offer amazing massages which can be done before the temescal.

The owners are extremely warm and welcoming so after the ceremony you feel like you have friends to come back to. Would do this again in a heart beat.

I went to the Temazcal because it was suggested as a unique and healing experience. Since I had a sudden cause of death in my direct environment I feel psychically damaged and hurt. I haven't had any espectations before since ususally I'm not a spiritual person.
But it was really mindblowing and afterwards I felt washed, kind of reborn and a little reliefed.
And I was told to get answers someday. And I did: Right after the temasczal I was visited in my dreams.
After the procedure which lasted 1 1/2 hours itself we were served delious drinks and fruit.
Thank you very much, Jonathan and Meike?! for translating. I will come back the next time!

This ceremony is unforgettable, nothing I have experience in my lifetime.The shaman was great, he explain everything in detail, answered all our questions. The ceremony was conducted in spanish with an english translator during the whole ceremony. My husband and I had a couples massage after the ceremony, the girls were great. This was such a great experience I felt so relaxed, so purified…. wow I will definitely do this again!

A wonderful experience with Tita, Christian, and Oscar who were very welcoming. I learned so much and felt a connection to our ancestors, Mother Earth, and life. This was my first ceremony and I was surrounded by love, openness, family, and felt reborn. Not to mention my body felt amazing after. The experience positively impacted me physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I would recommend this to everyone.

So lucky to have found this place for the full moon temazcal! It's run by a local couple, they are very sweet, knowledgeable, attentive, and caring. A traditional experience right in the center of Playa del Carmen that should not be missed – it's affordable, available, and welcoming – highly recommended! Even though I do not speak Spanish and the ceremony is in the native language, I felt a part of the group and was able to participate with everyone in attendance. Great memories! Thank you so much for what you do.
