Full description
Embark on amazing experience to Sumidero National Park. Explore Sumidero Canyon and the town of Chiapa de Corzo on this 9-hour tour from San Cristobal. Begin with a 45-minute drive through the mountains, along a scenic highway toward Tuxtla Gutierrez. Admire the beautiful panoramic views as you pass through the clouds to reach the canyon. The tour continues with a boat trip, as you marvel at the immense Sumidero Canyon from another perspective. After taking in this stunning natural scenery, you’ll visit the magical town of Chiapa de Corzo, known for its magnificent 16th-century Mudéjar Fountain, with its colorful xicalpestles (lacquered and painted gourds). It’s also home to Parachico revelers, the main attraction at the Fiesta of San Sebastián. After the visit you’ll continue on the drive, enjoying breathtaking views of the Sumidero Canyon from several lookout points, including the Ceiba, the Coyota, the Roblar, the Tepehuaje and the Chiapa.

Recommended excursion if you are in the San Cristóbal area. The boat ride alone is worth it. We had the opportunity to see wildlife such as crocodiles and monkeys! However, the driver guide did not explain many things and we also had to pay extra for the boat ride to leave at that time instead of waiting for it to fill up, simply because some members of the group agreed to pay more. Very poorly managed by the guide

Shuttle bus was slightly late and did not have proper air conditioning. The boat trip through the canyon was amazing! The captain made an effort to get close to all the points worth mentioning. So we came about 5 meters away from a beach full of crocodiles. The English guide told interesting stories about the canyon and its history. Recommended!

The pick up was an hour late without any communication, which was frustrating as we could have grabbed a coffee or something instead of just waiting in the dark. The driving was a little crazy, but that seemed to be the case in the whole region. The trip itself was really great. They provided an English translator that gave us information on the boat as well as a personal walking tour in Chiapa de Corzo. Canyon was beautiful. Look out points were cool. Had an amazing buffet lunch at a local spot in Chiapa de Corzo. The logistics just could have been improved.
