I'm sorry to say that I have no news regarding the Chichen Itza light show, and as the new version is being done by Maestro Pintor Xavier de Richemont, that would be big news. So I would assume it will not be back as we have heard nothing about its progress.

We checked last night and were told the light show was still closed for "renovations" and that they didn't know when it would be available

The timetable for the new light show was simply "2013," no specific date for it to return. I've heard nary a word on its progress.

In Mexico, 2013 could well become 2015!

Haha, EJA, Any updated word on this? The website suggests that there is a light show, but this might be outdated information. Thanks so much!
