The Sacred Mayan Journey, embarking on its 7th year, will take place on May 23-25 in the Playa del Carmen area. The event recreates one of the most ancient traditions of the Mayan culture – the yearly pilgrimage of the Maya who braved the ocean on their canoes (yes – those waves in canoes!!) to cross from the island of Cozumel to worship their goddess Ixchel.
The 3 daylong event is held at Xcaret, an archeological park, located only 15 miles from the Grand Palladium Resorts complex in the Riviera Maya. This event would be perfect for couples looking to take their wedding guests on a unique outing, or for families looking to expose their children to the Mexican culture and heritage. Join the Sacred Mayan Journey by booking your stay at one of these amazing 5-star resorts where you will be only a 15 minutes ride away from experiencing Mexico in a whole new way. The Grand Palladium Riviera Resort and Spa would be a perfect choice to incorporate modern luxury with Mayan history & culture!
During the three days, visitors will enjoy a display of folklore, music and ceremonies as well as an exquisite example of traditional Mexican Cuisine. Even if you can’t make it this year – plan on visiting for 2014!
