Xcaret – Riviera Maya

The Sacred Mayan Journey is one of the most anticipated events in the Riviera Maya. An event that rescues traditions of the Mayan culture, organized by Grupo Xcaret.

For those who do not know, the Sacred Mayan Journey is a millenary practice. It consists of taking a trip from Xcaret to Cozumel in canoes. Ritual performed by the ancient Maya to bring offerings in order to thank the goddess Ixchel – goddess of the moon, fertility and gestation – for the blessings received during the year.

In 2019, more than 300 canoeists made this brave journey, setting sail on Friday May 17 from Xcaret (before Polé) with the first rays of sunlight and reaching the island of Cozumel (formerly Cuzamil) around half a day.

During the night of Friday, the sailors enjoyed the ritual Night of Oracle, where they leave their offerings to the goddess of fertility. This is a night of celebration and joy.

On Saturday, May 18, the canoeists took their boats early to return to Xcaret around one in the afternoon. Upon arriving at their destination, very emotional moments were experienced. A positive energy of overcoming and gratitude was felt when they got out of their canoes, congratulated their fellow travelers and were reunited with their loved ones.

Undoubtedly, a very pleasant experience for all of us who enjoyed the event and especially for the crew that successfully completed the Sacred Mayan Journey.

Would you dare to navigate the waves of the Caribbean and rescue this Mayan tradition?
