Drawing inspiration from ancient Aztec healing traditions Cala de Mar opened recently a temazcal ([temasˈkal]). Temazcal is a type of sweat lodge in the shape of a circular dome that originated with pre-Hispanic Indigenous people. In ancient Mesoamerica, it was used as part of a curative ceremony thought to purify the body after exertion such as after a battle or a ceremonial ball game. Enjoy the privacy of our very own Jatsima Temazcal dedicated to the Ocean Mother. Book in advance your private Temazcal Ceremony led by a shaman or guide and ... >
... expect to enter the Jatsima Temazcal sweat lodge where rosemary, basil, lemongrass and other scents organically grown in our garden waft over the steam created by the shaman as he or she will gently throw water over a pile of hot rocks in a pit. You will be kept hydrated with herbal tea and fresh fruit. You are permitted to lie down, walk around, or sit still -- whatever it takes to cleanse body and mind. To close the ceremony you will experience a refreshing shower in a cliffside setting with an ocean view.

Cala de Mar is also reenergizing its wellness offerings as it pertains to physical fitness with a new bike partnership with local artist, Nicolas Peña. A Guerrero native and third generation artist, Peña pulled inspiration from the surrounding vibrant colors of nature in the destination to design one-of-a-kind beach cruisers available for guests to use while staying at the resort. Guests can observe eccentric flora and fauna on a bicycle tour through an ecological and wildlife reserve teeming with crocodiles, iguanas and exceptionally unique bird activity.
