9:00 am. Visit to the Cañon del Sumidero National Park

It begins at the Dr. Belisario Dominguez bridge, and goes all the way to the Chicoasen Dam, crossing along the Grijalva River, with an approximate length of 18 miles.  
It originated from a long process of telluric disturbances, movements which now allow us to see late Mesozoic limestone layers, with strata fossils of marine organisms, as well as huge underground boulders and canals which, upon finding huge permeable rocks, give rise to internal storage sources that surface on the canyon’s walls in the form of waterfalls, which now can be seen as a result of an area of navigable waters.    
It provides the possibility to see animals such as crocodiles, spider monkeys, white herons, etc.
The river tour last 2 hours, going both ways.

Santo Domingo is the best preserved example of the religious architecture of Chiapas of the sixteenth century.  Its construction is attributed to the Portuguese friar Pedro Barrientos. It was made of brick and follows the Gothic Renaissance style; it also has a three-nave basilica in the style of Romanesque churches.
The Belfry is located inside the church complex, and is a circular tower with 40 steps, where the bell called “Santa Teresita” hangs. This bell is the pride of the entire population as it was the first bell in the province, made in 1576, cast in copper and gold
