Voladores de Papantla

Admire an ancient tradition recognized worldwide

The ritual ceremony of the “Voladores” (flyers) is considered Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, which gives it a great cultural value that we proudly present in Xcaret Park. Watch them fly through the air!

This custom of Mesoamerican origin expresses respect for nature and the spiritual universe. During the ceremony, four Voladores de Papantla climb a pole while one more flyer remains sitting on the edge of the platform, while playing with a flute and drum melodies in honor of the sun, the four winds and the cardinal points. After this act of invocation, the dancers launch themselves from the platform to which they are tied by long ropes, imitating the flight of birds and drop down to the ground.

Witness this great ceremony and get involved in the preservation of one of the most spectacular traditions of Mexico!

Opening hours: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 h. y 3:00 p.m.
