Spring Equinox


Maarch 2017

The Chichen Itza Spring Equinox is a stunning event featuring Mayan history and archeology that takes place in Chichen Itza.

Every year during the autumn and spring equinoxes the light of the sun makes a shadow, which makes it seem as if a serpent is slithering along the steps of the pyramid, with the effects beginning in the late afternoon and lasting for an hour.

This serpent shadow annually appears for a few days at the Kulkulkan Temple, from around March 19th to the 23rd, but has the most effect on the actual date of the equinox, March 20th, 2017.
