Sacred Mayan Journey

A few minutes before sunrise, in front of the Xcaret inlet, the powerful sound of the "tunkul” drum indicates that the 10th edition of the Sacred Mayan Journey is beginning.


Four hundred canoers will depart from here. Both men and women after months of preparation and encouraged by the great fighting spirit, will cross the sea on traditional canoes to Cozumel Island, to receive the message of the goddess Ixchel.


Live this ancient tradition on May 20th and 21st, which Experiencias Xcaret, along with the effort of the canoers, has made possible for ten consecutive years.

Diary of an oarsman

We row;
fire in our muscles,
salt in our eyes,
wind at our bow,
and sun on our skin.


We burn and burn, until we have nothing more to burn.

We row and row until we can´t row any longer - then we row on.
