In Mexico there are many archaeological zones, one of the most important ones is Chichen Itza, which is located in Yucatan, 3 hours away form Playa del Carmen. Each year at spring, the esplanade of the Kukulkan pyramid fills with people to attend the equinox that takes place every March in the northern hemisphere of the planet, this marks the transition from winter to spring. The equinoxes occur twice a year: in March 21 and September 22 for about five hours.
At the ancient Maya city of Chichén Itzá, during the spring and fall equinoxes, the great pyramid of Kukulcán serves as a visual symbol of the day and night as the sun of the late afternoon creates the illusion of a snake creeping slowly down the northern staircase. Thousands of people travel from around the world and gather to Chichen Itza each year, to admire this astronomical spectacle. The whole day has a carnival type atmosphere, rock bands competing with traditional music and folk dance troupes, and groups of New Agers in robes come to see the equinox. Visitors usually wear white clothes in order to get rid of “bad vibes” and attract positive energy from the new sun.
Attend this extraordinary phenomenon in one of the most famous Mayan Ruins named by UNESCO a World Heritage Site and a Wonder of the World, “Chichen Itza”.
