Unique geographic formation in Southern Mexico (Chiapas). Can be enjoyed from below (by boat) and from above (by car). There are day tours for each location, departing from Tuxtla Gutierrez (main city). Both visits are recommended. For the limited budgets (like me) though, those tours...More

This is one of Chiapas landmark... Cañon del Sumidero and you can't leave without experience this magnificent scenic paradise. It is beautiful but be careful with mosquitoes they are really big and sting badly. But overall you'll have an amazing experience.

Really nice place to go and visit. You need to go at this place and visit the miradores too. This place is amazing and clearly the place to take great pictures.

You just have to see it to believe it. Beautiful to say the least. Light hiking, scenic drive, boat rides available. You have to experience both ways.

This place is amazing beautiful. All of the miradores give you an awesome view of the canyon. The entrance fee is minimal. Take a tour or rent a car. Its a must do when in Chiapas. Bring your bug spray!

The drive was easy and well maintained. There are 5 major lookouts that provide different views of the canyon below (all spectacular) and varying in amenities from picknic tables, info signs etc. As you drive up the canyon, you progressively get higher and higher where...More
