Sacred Mayan Journey Route 2020

Xcaret - Chankanaab - Xcaret


The former port of Polé (Xcaret) was the principal embarkment point for the pilgrimage of all the communities in the Ekab Maya region towards Kuzamil (Cozumel). The Sacred Mayan Journey recreates this route every year, starting with a departure ceremony to godspeed the Great Navigators. With the first rays of the sun, the oarsmen start their journey to the Ixchel goddess sanctuary for listening to the Oracle words carefully.
