The Spring Equinox

Saturday, March 21, 2020 March 21, 2020 El Cid Resorts

Each year a blow-minding event takes place on the pyramid of Kukulcan.

On March 21st you can witness a truly remarkable occurrence at Chichen Itzá in the Riviera Maya. When the sun is descending, the natural lightning effect casts a shadow that resembles a snake crawling from the top of the pyramid to its base, down to the staircase, reuniting with a large stone serpent head, personifying Quetzalcóatl, the Winged Serpent, the God of Gods.

The festival celebrates the advanced astrological the Maya culture with concerts, sound and light shows on the sacred archeological site.
