The Chichén Itzá light show, which debuted in December, will be free through Aug. 31, 2015.

The spectacular Las Noches de Kukulcán show at Chichén Itzá will be free for another month — but no longer.

The sound and light show was to be free until June 30, a six-month celebration of its monumental high-tech upgrade. It was such a smash, the government extended the offer another month. Now, they are extending it one more time. But after that, you’ll have to buy a ticket, they vow. Prices have not been announced.

It’s free to the public, but costly to the government — to the tune of 500 pesos, or about $31 US, per spectator. That adds up.

 

Read about the show here.

If available (and they most likely are not) tickets can be obtained at the box office of the Teatro Jose Peon Contreras, in the Government Palace or at the box offices of the cinemas of the Convention Center Siglo XXI, or at www.nochesdekukulkan.com
