According to Mayan beliefs, the jaguar spirit lives in all people, empowering us to rise up and explore. It is this spirit that has driven us all, since the time of ancient travelers, to reach this place called Xcalacoco. It is here, on this land, with traditional dances and ceremonies that our community continues to pay homage to the sacred elements of Heaven and Earth, Water and Air, Fire and Life.
Day 1: Cenote Offering According to Mayan legends, the Offering to Chaac is based on a beautiful love story between a brave prince, Chachazib, and a beautiful princess, Nicte-Ha. Their story took place beside the clear waters of a sacred Mayan cenote. The two shared a love so profound and tragic that their story continues to be shared in local legends to this day.
Day 2: Ceremony of Fire
Surrounded by the intense heat of the fire, the Chilam gives thanks for all the kindness and gifts the Great Creator offers us each day—the sacred elements of Water, Sun, Wind, Earth and Life. As the villagers dance to thunderous drums, the entire community of Xcalacoco unites in a common prayer for harmony. In this final ceremony we make a collective commitment to continue feeding the Fire of Life.
