PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q. Roo — The Sacred Maya Crossing will be held on May 26 and 27; around 300 people distributed in 30 canoes will stage the ritual that the ancient Mayans did to pay tribute to the goddess Ixchel.

At a press conference, Leticia Aguerrebere, director of the cultural show, reported that at 5:30 am on Friday May 26, at the Xcaret Park facilities, the barter market will be held to emulate the Mayan trading style, and subsequently there will be a dance dedicated to the white owl, king vulture, red macaw and flamingo, birds of great importance to the Mayan culture.

The departure of the 300 canoeists will take place at dawn in front of two thousand people, whose access will be free if they arrive at 5:30 in the morning.

Price tickets

Although the admission in Chankanaab will be free for both days, the entrance to Xcaret park will have a cost depending on the required services; the costs for the event can be consulted at the official site: http://www.travesiasagradamaya.com.mx/

According to Aguerrebere, the Sacred Maya Crossing has been investigated and documented since 2007 by Xcaret, in coordination with experts from the Center for Mayan and Philological Studies of the UNAM, so it has scientific bases that make it very close to what the ancestors did originally.
