About This Center

Raíces Del Cielo, or The Roots of Heaven, is a jungle hide-away that is a gem in the Mexican Caribbean.  Near Fresh-Water cenotes for excursions, with its own fresh water pool, amidst the rich varieties of trees, and the jungle sounds of a treasure of birds, one can feel the lineage back to the ancient mysteries of the Mayan culture.  The temazcal holds a living, breathing bridge to this rich culture through the ancient sweat lodge ceremony that purifies body, mind and spirit.  

Upon entering, you feel the unique magic where nature and artistic design merge into sublime harmony. Through conscious cultivation of inner and outer practices, you live personally an encounter with the root of your (contact info blocked) all within a supportive environment of a spiritual family. The large modern Kitchen and Dining area are exquisite for fine dining experiences, simple shared meals, or nutrition classes.

The individual casitas are perfect for romantic couple bonding time, or the larger houses can hold large groups with comfort for all.  There is a variety and rich array of possibilities that can effectively serve as paradise where your needs can be met: body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Coming to The Roots of Heaven Retreat Center was a step from my normal life into a magical spiritual experience. The Temazcal shaman gave us a mysterious connection to ourselves and to nature. The chef served food artistically designed and of exquisite taste. What’s more, he said that it was his pleasure to serve me! What a secret gem this jungle holds. --Eduardo from Argentina
