Playa del Carmen

PLAYA DEL CARMEN

Playa del Carmen Origin:

Long before we could call this port Playa del Carmen, The Mayan used to call this paradisiac touristic destination Xaman Ha, which in Mayan translates to “Water from the North”. Along with the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula, one of the biggest ancient secrets and quite attractive touristic destinations are the Cenotes and Caverns ; They were believed to be part of the Underworld and they were called Xibal Ba.

A commonly believed myth by the Spaniards during the colony, is that those Caverns and Cenotes  were used to hide Gold. As well as the Caverns and Cenotes, Ruins were looted by the spaniards to later find that gold meant close to nothing to The Mayan, and that the biggest wealth was around knowledge and Culture.

Their coin were Spices and other fruits such as the cacao or the gum, which is obtained from the Chicozapote Tree’s sap, which is abundant along the Mayan Riviera.
