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. These locations allow you to admire the grandeur of the canyon as well as the local flora and fauna.

The experience as a whole is fantastic. But towards the end we took a 90 min detour to drop ppl off to Tuxtla (we were staying in San Cristobal). These ppl were picked by another van. So we wasted 90 mins of the day dropping ppl who should ideally have been dropped by the other van.

An enjoyable day boating on the spectacular Sumidero Canyon, followed by visits to three lookouts to see the canyon from above. Prompt pickup at our hotel, return at time promised. The only caveat is that the tour was advertised as a maximum of 12 participants, but the boat excursion was with 50+ passengers.

A dream trip. The boat ride was great. After that we had lunch. Buffet gave the opportunity to try various things. Then we visited two viewpoints with a view of/over the canyon. These visits made the excursion correspondingly long and lengthy (drive, get off, have a look, drive, get off, have a look).
