The Mayan Steam Lodge was by far my most favorite activity I completed while staying in Cozumel. Petrus is a phenomenal guide and person and truly makes you feel as if you are experiencing the ancient Mayan ritual as it has always been done. Before the entire ceremony begins, Petrus educates you very well on the Mayans and specifically their calendars. I really liked this part of the experience because it made me better understand what I would shortly be going through. I don't want to give away any details of the ceremony as it should be a surprise to all, but it is very enriching and meaningful and the effects of the experience will stay with you long after you return home. To those saying it gets very hot - well, it does. However, it does not get VERY hot until the VERY end and if you lay down on the floor it lowers the temperature and strain on you significantly. I am a VERY small person (100lbs) and I was very, very badly sunburned that day and I did just fine. Petrus also cut me some fresh aloe to help with my terrible sunburn and it felt as if it healed it right up! I am horrified of natural bodies of water (rivers, lakes, oceans) and yet somehow they got me to get into the Cenote afterwards - which was very refreshing. If I ever return to Cozumel I will definitely repeat the experience!
