Balam offers eco-tourism excursions to the travelers looking for a self-tailored trip, sharing by his side an archeological, anthropological and cultural adventure into local Maya culture. Besides this, he also offers temazcal building to hotels or individuals. It is part of the mission he set up for himself, which is “to allow visitors to discover and experiment an ancestral mesoamerican ritual”.
For more information, you can find a temazcal building practical guide on this website for example.
Once the building is achieved, you have to light up a fire inside to warm up the volcanic rocks, as well as some water mixed with plants. Everything must then be put in the hole in the center of the temazcal. To know more about the “temazcal experience”, read this article.
