Botanical Garden, Cenote-
Our 35 m. in diameter cenote is partially filled with many of nature's earth's jewels, as a result of thousands of years of the earth's natural movements, wind, and hurricanes and has become what locals call a "chorchal" (kor-ch-al). 3m below the ranch's surface we have created a charming botanical garden, a quiet place to connect with the power of limestone walls, and internal water holes.

(Cenote, (say-NOH-tay) called dzonot (ZO-note) by the ancient Maya were defined by the Motul dictionary, a dictionary of Mayan hieroglyphics, as "abysmal and deep" or "hole filled with water". Cenotes are formed when the roof of a cavern collapses due to erosion. The level of the water also contributes to the creation of cenotes: if it is too low, it does not provide enough support, which causes the roof to weaken and cave in.

The depth of each cenote depends on the amount of natural debris that has accumulated through erosion in addition to the remains of the roof that collapsed. The water that gathers in these amazing natural wonders is a crystal clear turquoise color with a very pleasant temperature of 78°.)

Temazcal or Indigenous Sweat Lodge-
Crafted from the regions natural limestone our igloo-like structure can seat up to 8 guests. The temazcal ritual is based on traditional healing methods used by indigenous Mexicans in which the properties of fire and water are combined to purify the mind, body, and soul.

The tradition of the temazcal. From pre-Hispanic heritage, Mexicans have recovered a ritual ceremony that was celebrated among indigenous cultures as a therapeutic cleansing. In our days, this steam bath has been taken up with the intention of experiencing the magic connection that has been forgotten and that exists in the Earth and in all parts of our being. Volcanic rock is heated until red-hot and is placed in the center of an igloo-type construction, where the group reunites.

During this ceremony, the group gets comfortable inside the temazcal and the stones are called for. The door is closed, sealing off all light and sealing in the heat. Herbs are thrown on the stones to create a curative vapor, heating the temazcal to even higher temperatures. The body may reach a temperature of 104°F ó 40° C during the temazcal.

The Neighboring attractions include:

 


The natural wonders of the Yucatan Peninsula
are countless, but some of the most unique to the area
are the cenotes. Cenotes are created by an underground river system and are fresh water sinkholes that
the Maya considered to be sacred.
In addition they were an incredibly important fresh water source, and the Mayans also believed they were the entrance to the underworld.

* Millions of years ago, the ocean covered the Yucatan Peninsula. Some 15,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age, the sea level descended approximately 250 feet.

For thousands of years, the porous land surface, formed by fossilized coral and limestone, had filtered rainwater which dissolved parts of the subsoil. This process created a system formed by flooded underground rivers and caves. This phenomenon is truly unique, and makes up the largest network of caverns in the world.
