What to expect

You'll be let into the secret world of the Maya on this night tour with a difference. Visit a typical Maya house in the heart of the forest near Playa del Carmen and open your eyes to their food and rituals, then swim in a cenote during the hours of darkness – a feeling that's out of this world.

Journey to a Maya community in the heart of a forest and enjoy a spiritual experience that you'll find nowhere else. We'll firstly visit a typical Maya hut to learn about their ancient customs and meet the local people after which you'll be shown how to make tortillas and achiote chicken from scratch. Then a healer – or shaman – will take you step by step through the ancestral purification rituals including seashells and fire in a temazcal, a stone-built sauna.

Before dinner, we'll walk through the forest to an ancient volcanic cenote where you'll be able to swim in the crystal clear water. Finally, you'll feast on local dishes with Maya people before returning to your hotel.
