HotelChatter: Maroma's Temazcalera

No, it's not the liquor called mezcal. It's a temazcal, or a Mayan sweat lodge. That's where you'll find the subject of Day 3 of my HotelChatter series on cool hotel jobs: Nancy Aguilera, the resident temazcalera at the Maroma Resort and Spa on the Riviera Maya.

Her job includes stoking the volcanic rocks that superheat this miniature pyramid, and then interpreting the visions that guests have while inside, where they rub themselves with special mud and fruit essences before jumping into the Caribbean sea outside at sunset for a cooling, clarifying, mind-blowing experience.

Sound trippy? It is! That's why you need Nancy guiding you along the way. Read more about her in my article at the link below.
