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.
(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.
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°.)

have recovered a ritual ceremony that was celebrated among indigenous
cultures as a therapeutic cleansing. In our days, this steam bath

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
During this ceremony, the group gets comfortable inside the temazcal
and the stones are called for. The door is closed, sealing off all

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.
