Summer is around the corner, and even though it starts in June, we can feel its vibrant atmosphere and warm weather since May, making it the ideal season for a refreshing beach escape. No matter your preferences and passions, in the Mexican Caribbean, there’re always festivals and events to welcome one of the most exciting seasons of the year. Let’s find them out!
Sacred Journey, Xcaret
Embark on a traditional expedition that has been performed for more than 500 years. This ancestral journey commemorates the splendor of the itzaes communities as navigators that created one of the most important shipping routes in the country.
The ceremony starts with a purification and healing ritual in the Mayan port Polé, a popular place that today is known as Xcaret. You’ll navigate through the Ekab Sea, today known as the Caribbean Sea, onto the Cozumel island. Once there, participants will pay tribute to the goddess Ixchel, just as ancient Mayans did it.
