Playa del Carmen, Mexico - May 25, 2021: Five men sit atop a tall pole, performing the Papantla Flyer ritual at Parque Fundadores in Playa del Carmen. The ritual consists of dance and the climbing of a 30-meter (98 ft 5 in) pole from which four of the five participants then launch themselves tied with ropes to descend to the ground. The fifth remains on top of the pole, dancing and playing a flute and drum.
