Playa del Carmen, enjoyable the old Xaman-Há!

Where does this wonder come from…


Playa del Carmen, the ancient Xaman-Há (northern water in the Mayan language) was the obligatory step for the Mayans of the region on their pilgrimages to venerate the goddess Ixchel, goddess of love, gestation, water, the moon and the medicine, which had its sanctuary on the island of Cuzamil, now the island of Cozumel, once a year the Mayans, both men and women, left in canoes from the port of Polé, today Xcaret, to ask the goddess for her favors, this event It is still carried out from the Xcaret park, which has kept this tradition alive to the delight of our visitors.

Later, during the Spanish invasion, this area was not very important since only two founded towns are registered, that of Salamanca, in the place today known as Xel-Ha, and that of Xaman-Há founded by Alonso Dávila, landowner of Francisco de Montejo.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a gum company from Yucatan managed to obtain permits for the exploitation of forest resources in the area, thus arriving the first settlers of the current era. Until 1980 Playa del Carmen was a small fishing village with no more than 1000 inhabitants.
