Edible ExplorerInto the Wild at Habitas Bacalar

Surrounded by swooping palms and slow burning copal in the Yucatan Jungle, I felt instantly embraced by Habitas Bacalar.  Before I was led to my room, I was welcomed into a copal ceremony. While the tree resin burned, Habitas staff told stories of copal being used for thousands of years to clear land and spirit of negative energy.  From the shamanic breath work to the use of tamarind from the ancient trees that first lined the property when they began its construction, every choice is deeply intentional. The hotel honors tradition and weaves ancient practices into every guest activity from the moment I arrived.
