Meditate inside a cenote in this magical spiritual experience

There’s no doubt about it; more tourists seek untraditional spiritual experiences, especially when they travel to mystical destinations such as Tulum. 

This is why this small and magical city of Quintana Roo has begun to offer new experiences that will make travelers forget about the fast pace of everyday life and bring people closer to a new level of inner peace and awareness. Can you imagine meditating inside a Mayan cenote? 

Why meditate in a cenote? 

For those who don’t know what a cenote is, it’s a reserve of fresh water trapped in caves and underground rivers that come to light with the collapse of their domes over the years. These are famous for their beauty and fascinating depth, which often hide secrets of pre-Hispanic life. 

Cenotes were sacred spaces for the Mayans. With their crystal clear turquoise water, it was the perfect space for them to connect with their ancestors and gods. They would even use them for sacrifices and offerings. Nowadays, they have become natural settings where you can absorb peace, energy, and wisdom. 

Luckily, Tulum is the perfect place to get involved in these bohemian and spiritual experiences inside them, with many tours that include guided meditation and live music.

How do I sign up? 

The experiences typically have a cost that ranges between $150 and $250 USD. They include transportation to and from the cenote to your residence or hotel, live music, food, and snorkeling equipment. It all depends on your budget!

Keep in mind that music plays a vital role since the shape of cenotes and water generate magical acoustics that embrace your body and make it vibrate at unique frequencies. Once the musical session is over, we recommend that you close your eyes and absorb the silence created within the cenote. Listen to your mind and your thoughts, and breathe deeply. 

The highest-rated tours are sold and organized by Viator and Mexico Kan Tours; however, you can search online to find an experience that suits your personal needs. The best thing is that if you’re a non-Spanish speaking traveler, they also offer tours in English, German, French and other languages.
