Chichen Itza Nightly Light Show Returns April 2014

The nightly light-and-sound show at Chichen Itza returns in April 2014 according to the governor and secretary of tourism for Yucatan.

I posted the details here: http://www.americanegypt.com/blog/?p=2391

In addition to the evening show, the state is also adding night tours where the monuments will be illuminated by spotlights.

UPDATE: The governor of Yucatan visited Chichen to see a preview of the show. Perhaps a July reopening will be possible after all.

LAST UPDATE, I HOPE: The all new light-and-sound show premieres in September, but there will be a "soft launch" to work out the kinks beginning next week on Aug. 11, 2014.

According to officials the show will play nightly--for free--until the September official premiere, at which time there will be ~200 peso admission.

And, UPDATE with zero surprise, the light show was a no-show. It has been delayed again!
