Xcalacoco Experience

Celebración Maya


On December 21-22, 2012 in Xcalacoco, we invite guests to celebrate a transition to the beginning of what we, and many Mayan leaders and scholars, hope will evolve into a new era of environmental sustainability and cultural consciousness, rooted in ancient Mayan beliefs and practices.

Sandos Caracol will present several events in honor of the Mayan traditions and communities that have, for centuries, existed on the indigenous Mayan land of Xcalacoco, located within the property of Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa:

  • A documentary video about Mayan culture in our theater and on television monitors throughout the property
  • A reproduction of a traditional Mayan Village on our main beach
  • A series of Mayan ceremonies written and performed by local artists and community members
  • Traditional Mayan arts and crafts produced and presented by local artisans
  • Temazcal ceremonies (extra fee)
  •  An academic presentation on Mayan culture and the Mayan calendars
  • Photo exhibition on Mayan Culture
