just another village, nothing special to waste your time, unless you need a less expensive hotel or comedor, we entered looking for the embarcadero to the canyon, and we made a mistake.

This little town was our first stop in our journey, the fountain is an icon to admire and take lots of pictures of, also the centennial ceiba tree which has stood there since before the mexican revolution... It's very relaxing to walk along "los arcos" (covered archways stretching all around the main plaza) with its many souvenir shops and mexican... More

The village is nice but nothing special. You feel that people are used to tourists because of the boat tours to the canon. It is good to pass through and maybe drink a coffee, but that is it.

Like many, I came here to visit the canyon, but thanks to the people at Moon Guide, whose map of TG contained more errors than accuracies (Yes, I did get a full refund), by the time I found the true bus stop and got to C de C, it was too late to go up the canyon. But all was... More

This is an interesting Magic Town near Tuxtla Gutierrez. It's where you take boats into the damn area of Sumidero. The cliffs are dramatic and well worth the boat ride. The town was being remodeled while we visited, but the locals told us it would be ready by end of summer. There are some excellent restaurants and lots of shops.... More

We didn't know much about the area. Discovered that approximately 90% of the people hardly understood or spoke Spanish.

The boat ride in Sumidero Canyon was fantastic. I would highly recommend the trip to everyone. The town of Chiapa de Corzo is clean, they sell a few crafts, but it's an average town.

it is a very little place whith a monument in the middle of town that is the only thing that it is worthy to visit, so if you don´t have enough time, you can miss the place and you will not regret it

You go through this town when you go to the Canyon del Sumidero. There is not much to do or see. Park here, head to the canyon and then head on to eat somewhere else.
