Spiritual trips to find yourself in Mexico

despertal-espiritual-viaje-rutopia-

There is a new way of traveling, emphasizing spiritual awakening and finding oneself. Indeed, Mexico is full of beautiful places that offer the opportunity to explore this country and the possibility to find our inner selves.

On these trips, people seek a practice of wellness, not only through contact with nature but also through transformative experiences.

Regarding wellness tourism, it is worth taking into consideration the words of Andrea De La Holz, a specialist on the subject, for whom a trip of this kind should include the following: “elements of lifestyle, physical and mental elements, spiritual and relationships with oneself, others and the environment.

In this sense, Mexico is the ideal destination for spiritual trips to find yourself and a truly transformative journey thanks to its natural spaces, ancestral practices, and the knowledge that communities have preserved over time.

Do we want to embark on a journey that will change our lives? Then, with Rutopía, we can go to these spiritual sites and recharge our batteries.

Having said all of the above, we have selected some destinations surrounded by peace and away from the noise. Places that offer activities to connect with the body and mind.

Pre-Hispanic rituals for healing body and soul

Firstly, through the Lacandon Jungle, we can experience a traditional ceremony immersed in this ecosystem. Here we will meet Don Antonio Chankin, one of the oldest Lacandones of Nahá and the community’s spiritual leader. Between songs and the smell of copal, he will allow us to be part of a ceremony to Hach Akium, god of the Lacandon Maya.

Rituals in San Juan Chamula

Another alternative is the traditional rituals of San Juan Chamula, Chiapas, which is one of those rituals done to cleanse the soul or spirit. In this ritual, the Chamulas mix Catholicism with old Mayan practices. In addition, it takes place inside the most eclectic churches in Mexico.

Temazcal, a sacred space

The temazcal is a sacred as well as a medicinal space. It consists of steam baths in the middle of nature, which begin with a ritual that prepares our body and mind to enter a state of relaxation.

Hence, the temazcal brings all the wisdom of pre-Hispanic times, its healing and therapeutic benefits. This practice survived over time, and different communities practiced it.

Immerse yourself in hot springs to find yourself

Hot springs are known for their sacred and magical properties and their healing or curative effects and therapeutic action. For that reason, people usually frequent these sites to treat skin conditions, muscular or inflammatory injuries, etc. In Mexico, there are many places to live this experience; some of them are Chiapas, Hidalgo, and Oaxaca.

Fill yourself with energy in paradise

This activity takes place in the community of Chunhuhub, where our local guide will take us to a mystical experience where we can connect with the Ya’ax ché tree. An organism venerated and sacred by various pre-Hispanic cultures in Mesoamerica, with attributes ranging from cosmological to medicinal.

Escape to one of these destinations and disconnect from the material to connect with the spiritual.

Spiritual trips to find yourself doing yoga on the beaches of Mazunte

In Mazunte, we can find yoga retreats along with spiritual retreats. Practicing yoga here is a wonderful way to combine physical exercise with consciousness, strengthening your mind and body—a noble practice of loving and being loved.

Massages to be reborn in Cobá

Coba is one of the most impressive Mayan archaeological sites in our country. Nearby is a traditional healing center where we can receive massages with local honey. Also, Mayan medicine treatments and a rebirth bath.

Wings, Songs, and Colors: Bird watching

Bird watching is a practice that allows us to connect with the environment in natural spaces. Mexico has ideal conditions for this practice, thanks to the great variety of species within its natural areas. Birdwatching can be a beneficial practice both physically and psychologically; in addition, birdsong and other sounds of nature have health and wellness benefits.

Traditional medicine for spiritual trips to find yourself

One of the most ancestral customs and with more history in the country is traditional medicine. An experience that we can live in the Taselotzin Ecotourism Center, where the practice of traditional medicine is still rooted. The Hotel Taselotzin, located in the municipality of Cuetzalan, in the Sierra Norte of the state of Puebla, where indigenous women called Masehual Siuamej Mosenyolchicauani operated by a cooperative.

Disconnect to reconnect at Azulik

Last but not least, Azulik is one of the star hotels in Tulum and never ceases to amaze us since its construction focuses on the importance of reconnecting with oneself and always respecting the environment. Besides being immersed in its peculiar biomorphic architecture, which will leave us breathless.

We had an amazing honeymoon thanks to Rutopia in Mexico
We had an amazing honeymoon thanks to Rutopia & Jorge. Initially I had just contacted them to get some ideas about my trip, but I ended up booking our trip to Mexico with Rutopia, after a lot of back-and-forth planning with Jorge. We wanted to visit and see both cultural/historical/gastronomical/vacation places in Mexico and our trip made that happen. Our hotels were excellent. Our drivers and guides were always on time. The activities were fun and informative. Couldn't ask for more. We did not encounter any problems, we did not have to pay any extra money for an activity either. Everything went perfectly well. Special thanks to Angel who was our guide in Merida and Chichen Itza.

Perfect trip for a woman in Mexico
The Mexican Eco company Rutopia is excellent. As a solo female traveller, I was very pleased with the custom itinerary planned for me by Sibila. All of my requests were fulfilled, from urban tours and decent, clean hotels in CDMX to horseback riding, hikes and cooking lessons in beautiful Guanajuato. All drivers and guides were professional , knowledgable and arrived on time. I was very reassured by Melina from Rutopia, a warm and and very diligent person who checked in with me every step of the way both before my trip and during my days in Colonial Mexico. I heartily recommend this company as a reliable source for trip planning in Mexico.

Super easy way to plan a great trip Mexico
Jorge and Melina did a great job and I was very happy with my trip. On very short notice during the high season, Jorge put together a perfect itinerary. I hate to plan and Jorge took all the work out of it. He put together a good balance of the big, can’t miss sites and activities that were a little more off the beaten track. Jorge helpfully worked with me to adjust the itinerary to meet my interests, and in hindsight, I only wish I had gotten more involved. Every tour they arranged was fun and worthwhile with knowledgeable and professional guides and comfortable transportation. During my travels, Melina kept close tabs on me to make sure things were going smoothly. The few times I sent her a message, she quickly responded and she would check in on me every couple days when I hadn’t been in touch.

A dream vacation in México
My husband and I had the best vacation of our lives while visiting Oaxaca, Mérida, Valladolid and Puerto Morelos in México. Vanessa helped us tailor the trip and then Marisol coordinated the final details. Anita, from Rutopía, was always responsive to our questions and concerns while we were in México. In Oaxaca, Alex, our guide from Etnoturismo, made sure we fell in love with that city. And we did indeed. The colors, the food, the people are just amazing and have a special place in our hearts. The guide we got for Chichén Itzá, Juan, was very knowledgable and took great photos of us. The hotels chosen by our local specialists were breathtaking. We wouldn't have been able to plan such a wonderful vacation without their help. Muchas gracias!

Mayan Site Tour in Yucatan Penninsula Mexico
Rutopia did an outstanding job with the arrangement and execution of a 9 day tour of Mayan sites in the Yucatan peninsula. We provided Rutopia with the general parameters of the trip we wanted and they suggested an itinerary. After our approval, they set up the hotels, transportation within Mexico, and site tours. The hotels were good quality, and all of the drivers and tour guides showed up on time. We were very impressed with the quality of the tour guides and learned a lot on the trip. Jorge handled setting up the itinerary, and Melina handled the execution of the trip and was readily available via WhatsApp throughout the trip for any questions or issues. Melina was particularly helpful in changing our transportation arrangements to the airport at the last minute per our request. I would recommend Rutopia and would use them again for future trips.

Fantastic Will do it again
My wife and I had a fantastic holiday in Mexico thanks to Marisol, Ana, Teresa and their colleagues & partners. The entire itinerary and arrangements were put together in less than 4 days. What we really liked about Marisol & her team was that they were only a message or a phone call away for any query/suggestion, etc. The trip was bespoke to the extent that Rutopia had kept in mind about our interests, food habits & executed bookings, tours. They were also very flexible in catering to last minute changes/requests. The team took upon them to ensure that our entire trip was comfortable & safe by taking care of even small stuff that one normally finds out post getting to a place. We would definitely like to use their services again!!

Journey to Mexico City, Cholula and Cuetzalan
We had a wonderful time. We started out in Mexico City with a 2 day tour filled with museums, food, and beautiful sights. We then went on to Cholula to experience the culture in a smaller town, see a local market, and eat traditional food. We finished the tour in a small town called Cuetzalan, where most people speak an indigenous language. All of our guides were great. Thank you for a memorable vacation!

Travel with soul
I have traveled twice with Rutopía (family trips) and both have been wonderful experiences. Places of enormous beauty and biocultural richness, impossible to get to know in conventional tourism. Best of all: the hosts! Lovely people who know and love their cultures and territories and know how to transmit it with affection, pride and a great sense of hospitality. Undoubtedly, we will travel with them many more times!

Chiapas, Neri and her family
I traveled to Chiapas for an ecotourism experience with Rutopia and I liked it very much, the team responds very quickly to all questions and accompany the traveler throughout the experience, I missed my flight and they were very flexible to accommodate the entire itinerary, My destination was the lakes of Tziscao, where I was received by Neri with his family in very nice cabins next to a lake with incredible views and a magnificent tranquility, with them you make experiences of beekeeping and coffee and tours to nearby lakes, Montebello is a must! 100% recommended.

Super local agency
We have worked with Rutopia for several tours in Mexico in the Yucatán and Chiapas and we have never been disappointed. Authentic experiences, with locals, in magical places and off the beaten tourist track. Our contact Marisol was always super available and responsive, understanding and anticipating our desires. And she speaks very good French. I highly recommend Rutopia!

The best moment lived in Mexico
We were traveling as a group of friends with nothing organized. We like to improvise and be able to find alternative plans to the conventional tourist routes. We arrived in Puerto Escondido - Mexico's paradise - and started looking for options. A Mexican friend recommended us to contact Rutopia and we did. We explained our way of traveling - which they quickly understood - and in a few hours they came to us with a perfect selection of activities. We chose one of them and the next day we found ourselves galloping through beautiful hills, crossing a small lagoon in canoes, bathing on an unspoiled beach at sunset and sipping freshly picked coconuts with some mezcal. We had dinner in the only hut on the beach, eating fish that had been caught that day from the lagoon. Then we went to see the luminescence of the placton with paddle canoes until we were surprised by one of the biggest and reddest moons I have ever seen in my life. We ended up sleeping in bamboo huts a few meters from the waves. There were no more than 5 huts on the miles of beach that we could see. And at ALL times with an exquisite treatment - sympathy, kindness and attention. This is just one of the plans we booked with Rutopia, which definitely changed the course of our trip. Without a doubt, I would repeat this experience in any place I would like to visit in Mexico. Viva Mexico!

Super organization, great accommodations and nice team
The trip was perfectly organized, we were always exclusive or in very small groups and had freedom to do our own activities. All accommodations were fantastic and sustainable, the food almost always local and very good, we could always fill our Rutopia water bottles and travel as plastic free as possible. We were met at the airport and had assistance getting a rental car. After that, we traveled independently but had our fixed dates and reservations with Rutopia. It was the perfect mix!

Circuit in Yucatan
Discovering wonderful and surprising sites, Mayan communities with an unforgettable welcome, breathtaking landscapes, a very pleasant climate in the middle of March...and smiling people! A big thank you to Rutopia and his team for the elaboration of this ideal circuit, alternating nature, city life, simplicity and comfort. Thanks to Mélina for the follow-up during our trip. We don't speak Spanish well enough, and we appreciated having a French-speaking contact person who could be reached if necessary. We still have a lot to discover and hope to come back very soon, and with Rutopia without hesitation!

Perfect
For those who don't like to manage logistics like hotels, rental cars, activities. And above all, to have someone who speaks fluent French that we can reach at any time for the unexpected... You are in the right place! Thank you to Chloe for the preparation of our trip, to Melina our Ariadne's thread and Teresa for her welcome and help at the arrival and departure. A big thank you to Enrique and Blanca from Nuevo-Durango for their welcome, their smiles, their family, a lot of emotions at the time to leave you. Thanks to Mémo for your teaching of Mexican customs (Sian Ka'an) The Yucatan is a magnificent region. And the population is very pleasant. Only downside Holbox... Too much dust, too much smell of fuel oil, too much tourist. I will keep in memory these wonderful moments!
