Cañón del Sumidero

Chiapa de Corzo

Nature can make us feel tiny before its majesty. That’s exactly what happens when you ride a boat and sail on the Grijalva River through the “Cañón del Sumidero”, whose rock and mineral formations reach up to 1,000 meters (3280 ft) high and frame the “Cueva de Colores” (Colors Cave) and the “Cascada Árbol de Navidad” (Christmas tree waterfall).

In Chiapa de Corzo there are four jetties where you can rent a boat and make the route that reaches the limits of the “Presa Chicoasén” (Chicoasén Dam). In this adventure you can watch birds and know how dozens of species live in this colored green natural Mexican wonder.

To enjoy another perspective of this impressive canyon, you must head to any of the five viewpoints of the Parque Nacional Cañón del Sumidero (Cañón del Sumidero National Park)—The Tepehuaje, the Roblar, the Coyota, the Ceiba and the Chiapas. The latter is located at the summit of the canyon, more than 1000 meters (3280 ft) above the Grijalva River. Opening hours are from 8 to 17 hours.
