Fall Equinox, September 2011

Twice a year, the feather serpent god, known as Kukulcan makes his decent and shows himself for about 45 minutes down the side of the Chichen Itza Pyramid steps.

One of this days is the Equinox of Autumn, the archaeological sites where temples were built to mark the change of the seasons and perform fertility rituals are very crowded between the 21st and the 23th of September

Hitting the pyramid at the right angle, sunlight casts an undulating shadow on the side of a staircase each equinox. When the shadow aligns with a monumental stone head it seems as though the snake is descending right into it, there is a huge snake head at the bottom of the pyramid, and then there is Kukulkan.

Using the $1500 Resort Credit you can be part of this unique experience in Chichen Itza, for more information check out the tours at Palace Resorts website.

 Chichen Itza

Viva México!

September 16th is similar to July Fourth in the United States, and usually features rodeos, parades, bullfights, dances and grand feasts. But September 15th or the eve of Independence Day is when the celebration really begins, as crowds gather in every village and town throughout Mexico and some of the most important cities around the world where Mexican Citizens live. Towns are decorated with red, white and green flags, colorful flowers, and music of Mariachi fills the air.

As the clock begins to strike eleven, silence falls over the citizens as mayors across the land step forward to ring the symbolic liberty bell and give the “Grito de Dolores”, meet with the crowds’ response of “Viva Mexico”.

In Palace Resorts is no different.

Children! Families! Join us to celebrate the Mexican Independence with special activities on each Palace Resort’s properties, all specially for you.
