Celebrate the Awakening of a New World Order with the Mahékal Mayan Awakening Package

(in Accordance to the Mayan Calendar: Dec. 12, 2012)

Negatively described as the “end of the world”, MAHÉKAL BEACH RESORT Invites guests to Come Learn about the True Meaning of the Mayan Calendar And Why Now is the Time for Celebration, Not Fear

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Quintana Roo, México--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mahékal Beach Resort, located in the heart of the Riviera Maya adjacent to the historic Mayan Ruins, is offering a unique travel package for travelers looking to learn more about the Mayan Calendar and the events surrounding December 21, 2012. Described by many as a Mayan paradise, Mahékal Beach Resort and its one of a kind palapas style bungalows are nestled between lush tropical jungles, an 800-foot pristine white sand beach and the turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea. Starting September 15, 2012 and lasting through December 21, 2012, the Mayan Awakening Package is being offered to educate travelers on the true story of the Mayan's forecast of the end of the world.

“There has been much misinformation presented in regards to the Mayan Calendar and the events to take place on December 21 of this year,” said Emilio Palazuelos, general manger for Mahékal Beach Resort. “Our resort has close ties to the Mayans, their history and their ruins are right here in our backyard... It is our wish to clear the misconceptions surrounding 'doomsday' and invite travellers to partake in a unique exploration and learning package we have put together for this Fall.”

Although today many legends, myths and beliefs prevail, the Mayans did not actually predict anything about the end of the world. In fact, Mayans did not believe in a beginning or an end, but instead saw the world and time in a cyclical fashion. December 21, 2012 marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one that will propitiate conditions for re-establishing the equilibrium of the Earth.

“It is more of a rebirth and awakening of a new world order,” said Palazuelos. “And here at Mahékal, with our belief in the Mayan tradition and culture, we would like to celebrate this exciting and historical time by inviting people to come and learn more about the Mayans and what the Mayan date truly represents.”

The Mahékal Mayan Awakening Package includes accommodation for two in a Garden View Pueblito room surrounding lush green gardens, two Mayan massages following the original Mayan traditions and a unique Mayan Cultural Tour for two visiting the ruins of Cobá, an authentic Mayan village and a beautiful typical Cenote. Additionally, the package offers a one hour lecture for two on the highlights of the Mayan Calendar and the truth regarding the events of 2012; plus a unique Mayan gift to remember the Mayan 2012 events. This package also provides round-trip airport transportation to the hotel for two and daily breakfast and dinner or lunch.

The price for a four night stay is $1,162 and the price for a seven night stay is $1,508 (with all taxes included). The package is available from September 15 – December 21, 2012 and may not be used in conjunction with any other promotional rates. It is available for purchase online directly with the hotel at reservations@mahekalplaya.com or by phone at toll free +877-235-4452. Package subject to availability.
