Chichen Itza Spring Equinox
Looking for a perfect way to end the long winter? What could be better than taking some time away to not only relax on the beach, but expose yourself to the famous culture of Mexico? If you are constantly craving a new adventure we know the perfect time for you to head down to Mexico, during the Chichen Itza Spring Equinox in March of 2013!
This festival originated from the serpent-like light occurrence that takes place every year on March 20th. Light and shadow snake movements descend down the steps of the Castillo pyramid. This occurs every year at precisely 4 pm and takes approximately 45 minutes for the snake’s shadow to get down the pyramid.
The legend behind this mysterious phenomenon varies from the prophecies of Hunac Ceel to the simple rising and falling of the sunlight on the edge of the pyramid steps.
Either way the capability of the Mayans in 1500 BC is quite remarkable in order to accurately build a monument with such an occurrence to happen every single year.
Those who have visited this event have claimed that it is a once in a lifetime experience.
