Does anyone know if the light and sound show at Chichen Itza will br up and running for March 2013? Especially near spring equinox?

I'm afraid I don't know, but I'm interested in the answer since I'll be there at the end of February and wanted my in-laws to see it.

It's hard to see what the equinox would have to do with it since the whole point is to demonstrate what you might have (under ideal conditions) been able to see during the day near an equinox. Having seen the show in the past, I'd rate it as mildly interesting but not something to fret about.

We are going to be there in March as well - the week before the equinox - and are hoping the light show is up and running then too. If it isn't, it isn't, but I just think it would be neat to be able to see the ruins at night.

If I was a betting man, I'd say no, it won't be ready. Here's what I wrote recently on my blog about it: http://www.americanegypt.com/blog/?p=2360

That said, I'm always amazed by how fast something can get done in Mexico when there is a strong drive to do so. I've also seen other projects languish for months, if not years.

Incidentally, there is also a light show in the works for Valladolid, either at the church or the convent.

If the new light show is not ready at Chichen, enjoy the evening. it's beautiful in that area after the sun goes down.

Have a great trip!
