Full description
Explore Sumidero Canyon and Chiapa de Corzo on a full-day tour from San Cristobal. Begin with a 45-minute drive through the mountains, along the scenic highway, toward Tuxtla Gutierrez. Pay attention to the beautiful panoramic views as you drive through the clouds to reach the canyon.

Arrive at Chiapa de Corzo, an archaeological site of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. Embark on a boat trip that will take you on a 2-hour ride down the river where the steep walls of the canyon tower overhead. Look out for stunning waterfalls, caves, and dramatic cliffs. You may even glimpse a crocodile, and will definitely see plenty of other natural wildlife, especially birds.  

Take your last photos as you make your way back to the dock and get back into the van. From here, make the return trip to San Cristobal, passing along the curvy mountain roads. You will be dropped off in the city center so you can continue your day of sightseeing, shopping, or popping into a local cafe for a fulfilling lunch on your own. From the city center, you can easy walk to your hotel.
