Cozumel is a magical place with a fascinating history and Mayan influence that is still present to date. The Legend says that the island was the home of the Goddess Ix Chel, to whom the Mayans attributed power for fertility, health and love. Ix Chel determined the fate of men and woman and she did not only influence their life cycle and reproduction, but also had the power of destruction through storms and hurricanes. Ix Chel made the Island a sacred place by sending her favorite birds, the swallows (Cuzam). The union of the two words in maya; Cuzam (swallow) and luumil (place) gave the name to the Island Cozumel; the Island of the swallows.

For over a thousand years, Cozumel was one of the three most important sanctuaries in the Yucatan Peninsula, and woman born with the Mayan tradition, must at least once in their life visit the main temple of the goddess in Cozumel to purify their body and spirit and receive the benefits of fertility.

Currently each year, the celebration of the “Sacred Mayan Journey” takes place at the end of May, where the ancient Mayan traditions is recreated and the Mayan people crosses the Caribbean sea to Cozumel to worship the goddess Ix Chel.
