Infrastructure: High tension electric poles were installed to the property from a half-kilometer away, and 3-phase underground electric service supplies power to the Mayan Baths and the residence. A well drawing from the hot water aquifer provides 12 liters per second at 100° F (40° C) and has tested potable, is crystal clear and odorless. Legal rights were acquired to 120,000 cubic meters of use per year by registered deed. Constructions: A 2,700 sq. ft., two-story, three-bedroom, two-bathroom, house was constructed on the south-east edge of the property for future use as an office/manager’s home. The development’s main entrance structures have been partially completed at the front of the property, and a 25-foot (7-meter) wide primary access road was built through the property. A subdivision with 17, 1/4-acre lots with its own private entrance and road was constructed at the front of the property on the cobble stone road connecting with route 51 to San Miguel just 10 minutes away. The completed first phase of the Mayan Baths consists of a subterranean labyrinth of tunnels with arched brick ceilings, stone lined passageways, hand carved cantera stone columns, quartz crystal walled thermal water filled caves and tunnels, and an outdoor jacuzzi cascading into a large infinity pool. Mayan symbolism is artistically featured throughout the underground. The Baths’ longest water filled passageway is precisely aligned with the winter solstice so that on December 21st of each year, when the sun reaches its southern most position on the horizon, its rays shine straight down the tunnel reflecting off the quartz and crystal rock walls, casting an orange glow 150 feet deep into the back of the cave. The feathered Mayan Vision Serpent, Kukulkan, messenger between their king and gods, is found at the end of one of the passageways rising as a plume of smoke from a simmering caldron. Fashioned of colored pebbles, the Mayan “Tree of Life” adorns the floor of our “Topo Loco” bar. Mayan glyphs carved in cantera stone border the doors and mirrors in the bath/dressing room, and the sink spigots are in the form of jaguar heads, the animal who protected shamans from evil spirits. A replicated Mesoamerican Temazcal (house of steam), the traditional Mayan sweat lodge, is under construction just below the main pool. Used in ritualistic ceremonies of detoxification, healing and relaxation it is also a spiritual journey of rejuvenation, purification and a reconnection with mother earth.
