“Nicest place in Chiapas”

Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

Originally I thought that the nicest places in Chiapas will be between Palenque and San Cristobal, but I was wrong. The most interesting and worth to see is definitely Canon del Sumidero. You can go to see it from "downstairs", take a boat ride from Chiapa de Corzo ($160MXN, 2:30hrs). The cost includes also the entrance to the park so if you'll decide to visit any (or all) off the five viewpoints and see the canon from "upstairs", they will let you go in using the same bracelet (valid for the same day). The cañon itself it's magical from up and down. If you'll be passing via Chiapas, don't miss it!

Out of the many beautiful places we have seen on our trip this may have been the most beautiful.

On top of the wide river and 3000 foot canyon we saw crocodiles, spider monkeys in a 60 foot tree, a Christmas Tree shaped waterfall rock formation and more.

The only thing that really needs to be done is make sure that the trash that gathered in some key spots (from rain flows or not) is cleaned up better by both the SEMARNAT (government) and the for profit boat companies in tandem!

Regardless this was amazing

This was a fun place to go see! We did the overlook points as well as the boat tour through the river. They were both really cool! The boat tour leaves from Chiapa de Corzo. The drive up overlook tour took about 2 hours and the boat tour took another two hours. Stunning views and the Christmas Tree waterfall is really cool!

Beautiful park, with many attractions, a museum, zoo, swim pool mixed with adventure moments that you must try. You can reach there through Sumidero Canyon by boat from Chiapa

If you are going to Chiapas do not miss visiting the Sumidero, a must go place! The view is amazing, mountains, waterfalls, canyon's walls.... do not expect to see a lot of wild life (I only see two monkeys and 8 allicators... I was lucky)

The bad part: There is trash flooding on the water.... This is sad but do not miss the opportunity to explore this natural beauty.

Tip: this a pretty short tour, if you are arriving at Tuxtla before 1 pm, take this trip. My hubby and I got a tour which picked us at the airport at 1 pm, then they drove us to the cañon del sumidero and later to chiapa del corzo. Later, they left us at our hotel in san Cristobal de las Casas.
