Temazcal Experience

Get ready for an awakening of your spirit, Mayan style. Temazcal is a healing experience that comes full circle through chants and guidance from our Maák Bacab, 'the guardian of Bacabs.' Traditional herbs combine with steam generated by the heat of volcanic stones to restore mind, body, and spirit. Together, in a sacred space that symbolizes our Pachamama, Mother Earth, we will be reborn as the elements of water, earth, air, and fire come together as one.

Meet Our Máak Bacab

Legend has it that the Mayan gods created Máak Bacab, meaning 'the guardian of Bacabs' to hold the world at each of the cardinal points. Through rituals and ceremonies, the Máak Bacab invites people to get to know each other on a deeper level, helping them open their minds and souls to be reborn at the sacred precinct. The Máak Bacab celebrates union, strength, and the prosperity of relationships, spreading positive energy throughout the resort and infusing Mayan elements into the guests’ experience.

As Máak Bacab, Julio Cesar Morales will host ceremonies at the resort to enlighten guests on respect for nature and further connect them with The Universe. Since he was a boy, Julio’s family guided him on this healing path. He then intensively studied the practice of Temazcal, massage techniques, and cosmetology.
