The equinox is the time of the year in which the axis of the earth is in perpendicular position to the sun's rays. This means that both hemispheres, the north and the south, receive the same amount of sunlight, which constitutes a transition between climatic stations.

The spring equinox is a moment of celebration for many indigenous cultures around the world, which are affected by the change of station. In many ancient cultures of the Americas, the equinoxes were a moment of celebration, sacrifice and migration. During millennia, observing the changing path of the sun was essential to survive and difficult to ignore.

The Indigenous Ceremonial Center of Caguana is located in Caguana neighborhood of Utuado specifically on the 111 km highway. 48.6 and is attached to the Museums and Parks Program of the Puerto Rican Culture Institute.
