A long time ago...
The time could be perhaps 2000 years ago, when conch shells sound and drums echo. Once upon a time this very special location, where the jungle hands over its imposing majesty to a vast turquoise-blue sea, the canoes of the Mayan oarsmen approached the coast, bringing with them a renewed spirit after visiting the goddess Ixchel in Cutzamil (now called Cozumel).
Xcalacoco is the place where an oasis of tranquility and peace awaits, which mixes with the serenity that the exuberant natural beauty of this space provides. The crossing has arrived at its destination. The young maidens and the wives of the oarsmen are beautiful women dressed in lovely multicolored clothing that represents the inviting hope that their experiences in Xcalacoco share with them and all other visitors. The beautiful renewal that these oarsmen bring with them will set the standard for a new era, a time where we create a united collective consciousness between all human beings and the planet.
The Tatich (Cacique) and the escort of the present travelers to Xcalacoco have prepared a splendid welcome for these oarsmen, all of them grateful for the hospitality and support of the oaresmen who along with their two children, Kuha-Te and Mi-Ha, decided to permanently live at this site several years ago. Dishes have been prepared to keep the tradition of celebrating this special moment of the arrival of the oarsmen, whose chief goal is to transmit their ancient teachings to the guests of Sandos Caracol so that we all can learn to live in harmony with nature.
During the oarsmen’s short stay, we will live with them and learn to treat nature with respect, in order to maintain its balance and sustainability. We will enter their forests, pray in their temples, taste their food, treat ourselves with their medicinal herbs, experience their ceremonies and learn to Live Xcalacoco. Only in this moment, when we are all one and we understand how to reconnect with nature, can we return the jungle to its ancient majesty of 2000 years ago. From here, each traveler will carry this understanding to other parts of the world to share what he or she has learned, and in this way create respect toward nature among all human beings.
