As you can see, it is both breathtaking and amazing. You can feel what the ancient Mayans felt especially when the oarers come past you for the canoes. They are men and women of all ages who make this incredible journey. I even got a picture of one of the 70 year old woman who do this every year! It can take 12+ hours to get their depending on weather and winds. Then they go to bed and head back!
Interested in attending this year? The 11th Annual Sacred Mayan Journey leaves May 26 from Xcaret Park. The next day, the canoers will board their canoes again, to end their journey at Xcaret. You can watch them both take off and come back in and cheer them on. Like I said, it is awe inspiring knowing what they went through and talking to a lot of them. They will tell you how worth making this journey is. I can honestly say it is a once in a lifetime experience that will leave you inspired. You want to do something different on your vacation? This is the experience that will literally make your vacation and you will tell everybody about.
