The Pearl of the Caribbean will be shown in a gala screening and there will be exhibits attended by the leading figures of the entertainment world.
Sacred Mayan Journey – In late May, the annual recreation of the pilgrimage of the ancient Maya to worship the Goddess Ixchel takes place. A race from Xcaret Park to Cozumel comes alive with participants in pre-hispanic-style canoe vessels.
The race represents the journey that would take place as the pilgrims rowed across the Cozumel channel to visit the shrine to pay tribute and then return. The journey is about 25 miles each way and has taken place every year since 2007. An interactive Mayan market is held in conjunction with this event.
