From Josh Berman:

I'm a travel writer, author of MOON BELIZE, and I'm inviting you to participate in my next book. Where are you planning to travel in 2012, THE YEAR OF THE MAYA? Are you going to the source of the Maya prophecy -- to Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, or Mexico? What do you expect to see and experience during the year that the ancient Maya's 5,125-year Long Count calendar clicks over?

That's what will happen on December 21, 2012. There are sure to be massive gatherings at Palenque, Tikal, Xunantunich... where else? I just saw a Guatemalan elder speak in Denver, Colorado. He said "Don't be afraid! The Maya community does NOT interpret the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012 to mean the end of the world, but rather that we are entering a period of Mayan Energies called the '6 Knots' of energy vortexes." Then he invited me to his village, Coban, where they are building a school and offer an herbal medicine workshop for visitors.

There are many ideas out there about the signficance of "the most intriguing date in history," but make no mistake: La Ruta Maya will rule in 2012. Are you planning any 2012-specific tour packages? 2012/calendar-related events, ceremonies, etc.? I'm looking for big and little events across the Yucatan, Chiapas, Guatemala, Belize, Copan, wherever things are going to happen. This is for a book to be published in fall 2011. I'd love to feature Maya village community-based tourism projects in addition to the government-sponsored rutas and official calendars.

Please let me know: jberman AT gmail DOT com

Thanks for your participation.

Josh Berman

Update, the URL has changed to: http://www.facebook.com/2012travel

I know it's early and not everyone has planned this far ahead, but if you have, and can get me information in the next 10 days, your event may very well end up in my book, out this fall, 2011. Thanks!

This is the final call for 2012 packages, tours, ceremonies, or events to get listed in my new book (overview of 2012 travel in all the Mundo Maya)... contact me as soon as possible if you are planning anything or get left out in the 2011 dust...

Might not have to wait that long. The real date is 13 Ahau which is 28 Oct 2011. Ahau '13 'according to the Chilam Balam is' Holy completion of time, truly'.

I agree interesting on the real date guessing that means many people will miss the boat on the real celebration. Have to add Oct 31 2011 into 2012 plans now.
