MAYAN SACRED CROSSING 2018

The Sacred Mayan Crossing was a ritual performed by the Mayans in which they rowed in their canoes towards Cozumel with the purpose of worshiping their goddess Ixchel.

A journey to the past
This adoration ritual for the goddess Ixchel was a sacred ritual performed yearly since ancient times in these Mayan lands, and began days before in the known market of Kii´wik, where different kinds of products chosen for the offering were traded.

Those were festivities in which brave canoeists prepared to embark on the sacred crossing and attract the favor of the goddess Ixchel. You have the opportunity today to travel to the past and witness a wonderful ancient tradition.

LIFE AND DEATH FESTIVAL

In México, each town, each region has its own traditions, its own habits and customs. But there is one tradition that we find in every one of them throughout the country: The Day of the Dead. On this holiday, Mexicans remember and honor their deceased loved ones. In Playa del Carmen, the Xcaret Park hosts the Life and Death Festival to celebrate the varied traditions of the Mexican people about the Day of the Dead. You may be able to appreciate exhibitions, offerings, theatrical performances, dances, tours and concerts between October 30 and November 2. .

WHALE SHARK

If you are looking for unforgettable experiences during your visit to the Caribbean Sea, the search for a whale shark is an adventure you should not miss! El tiburón ballena tiene una particular característica que lo diferencia de otros tiburones: su bella piel con lunares blancos y el gran tamaño de este espécimen, siendo el pez más grande del mundo. The activity begins on board a boat departing from the beaches of Holbox or Cancún, and after a while, once the animal is spotted, tourists are invited to swim and snorkel a few feet away from the whale shark. This tour is perfect for people age 15 or older. These gentle giants have a docile nature; they are harmless and non-threatening to humans. It is best to carry out this activity between the months of May, June and July.

Ironman is the most demanding triathlon competition and it takes place every year in Cozumel, Quintana Roo during November.
