The Sacred Mayan Journey: a voyage to Cozumel Island
Year by yeaar an incredible tradition named The Sacred Mayan Journey takes places as groups of
canooers embark towards Kuzamil, or Cozumel Island as it is known today. From Mexico’s coast,
they fight against the Caribbean Sea’s current to reach the island and ask for the favor and fortune
of Ixchel, the moon regent and fertility goddess.
This 2017 will be the 11th year of this wonderful journey that has made locals and foreigners close,
together embarking in a unique voyage worldwide, filled with emotions, tradition, preparation and
strength. Amongst the 300 participants you can find 38 different nationalities from Argentina, Spain,
Venezuela, Chile, Italy, France, United States, Canada, New Zealand, Rusia, Switzerland, Uruguay
and the Netherlands. Under the gaze of thousands of assistants, the canooers will begin on May
26th, from the once known town of Polé, towards the Caribbean waters by dawn, to reach its
destination after a few hours of strength to overcome the obstacles of the journey. For them it is
important to bond with their teammates, and prepare months in advance under strict conditions to
reach their goal.
These brave men and women arrive to Cozumel and into the Chankanaab creek in the afternoon, to
ask the favor of the goddess, as a symbolic trip to ask health for their families, better economy and
fertile crops for their people. The next day, May 27th, they’ll go back to the coast starting at dawn.
Do not miss the opportunity to witness this incredible and mystical event, for all ages, open to the
