    This was an interesting and enjoyable experience. Our guide was wonderful as well. I’m giving four stars because it was very $$, more so tan it needed to be, and the description was a bit misleading as we were told the ceremony would be led by a shaman who held great respect in the area and it was instead led by the same person who served as our guide and has been practicing the Mayan religions for only a few years. So while an interesting experience it was a bit unexpected that the Shaman had a kayak tours polo on and that made it a bit more touristy than authentic feeling. Secondly the description said we would receive personalized horoscopes based on the Mayan calendar and we did not receive those either. The guide was wonderful and we enjoyed the experience but it would be better to not build higher expectations than what would be delivered.

      Hi Aly,
      Thank you for the feedback about the experience! We have updated the page to better manage expectations about the tour. We will also check with the local guide about why you did not receive the horoscopes. Regarding the guide working in tourism, being a shaman is not a full time job in that area, so it makes sense that they need to work outside of that to make ends meet. However, we will pass on your feedback about the polo making the experience feel less authentic.
