We picked up the boat before Chiapa de Corzo. We saw the crocodile, some in our party thought is was real, some thought it was fake. We passed a group of people swimming in the Canyon. Would you swim knowing there are crocodiles in the water? The Canyon is pictured in commercials and is a highlight and part of the culture of the area but like others mentioned, there was a LOT of trash. We pulled into one area that they call the " cave of colors" its nice but the entire area was floating trash. On the way back I saw up on the bank tons of plastic bottles as if they collected the trash but just put it up on land. Still i must say this is a must do. You can take the boat out Chiapa de Corzo, I think it is a better option than St Cristobal. Chiapa de Corzo is a nice small town and closer. Same cultural aspects but you wont have as many tourist to speak with and no coffee roasting in your presence. We paid 165 pesos for the boat tour. We drove ourselves and paid 10 pesos to park( we didnt take the boat from Chiapa de corzo) I do suggest doing that.
