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 (only in January). 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 flora and fauna.

Výlet dobrý, počáteční problém se jen náhodou vyřešil - začátek aktivity měl být mezi 7:30 a 9:00, info o vyzvednutí v hotelu bylo 9:00, ale ve skutečnosti bylo až 10:30, jen náhodou jsme nedopustili hotel. Výlet kaňonem je exkluzivní. Následná cesta na vyhlídková místa, kde kaňon vidíte shora, je také fajn, jen služby na těchto místech nejsou žádné - občerstvení hodně špatné jen na jednom ze 3 navštívených míst. Je třeba počítat s vlastními zásobami.

The canyon is amazing and this tour provides the added bonus of being able to do a one way trip along it as well as go to some stunning viewpoints. The boat trip was very safe and well organised and the guide was very good, we even saw crocodiles on the river bank. The mini van is standard Mexican fare with minimal seat belts, average air con and lots of people squashed in but was fine'. Would recommend the trip as such an amazing place to visit.

The tour is definitely worth it. Cañón del Sumidero can be seen from all sides and Eduardo was a very good and patient tour guide. His background knowledge and English were excellent! We were also traveling in a very small group which made it that much more enjoyable. The value for money could be a bit better, but it is still an absolutely worthwhile tour.
