Great views, great experience, great tour! We booked a tour from San Cristobal de las Casas. The Canon is amazing and a must if vising Chapas.

Whilst it was quite busy and a lot of the trip is done at warp factor nine it is enjoyable. The 'Christmas tree' made up of plants, ferns and mosses growing on the cliff face is spectacular. We managed to see several crocodiles, monkeys and birds, with a spectacular display by vultures. I know that any such trip is to... More

Breathtaking views of the Sumidero Canyon on this 2 to 3 hour trip. Depending on the company and the quantity of the people on the boat the trip can last from 2 to 3 hours, the views of the Canyon are amazing, the Christmas tree is an amazing formation. Beautiful Nature in Beautiful Mexico. It requires a group of 12... More

An hours journey from San Cristobal, the road is steep and windy. It is quite a descent in altitude. The weather was much warmer in the valley than in the mountains. We thought that the journey through the canyon was quite pleasant, and the scenery was beautiful. Our guide was able to discuss the scenery as we passed, and identified... More

Two days ago we have made a boattrip through the Canon de Sumidero. We are very sorry to have done so. Each day tens of very fast going boats do nature much harm. The damage is visible. Not many animals left over. There is a smelly blue walm of the heavy outboard engines. Our skipper had even a cloth for... More

This is a National Park and it's beauty is just amazing. Being in such a deep canyon makes one to feel small and insignificant. It's a gorgeous place, except for the litter found along the river. As some reviewers have mentioned before is hard to get food pictures because there's trash every where. Nevertheless, the canyon and the river give... More

The boat ride was great but the Rubbish wasnt. We were shocked with all the rubbish. WE pulled over to see a Crocodile and all we could see was rubbish. Really makes you think why you pay the national park fee. That being said we had a great day!

Canon del Sumidero is very nice place with beautiful nature. We took the trip from San Cristobal (price 200 pesos/person). We went to the village of Chiapa de Corso by minivan, it took us about 1hour and then we jumped to the boat. The boat trip takes about 1hour,the sceneries are very nice but do not except very good oportunity... More

The beauty of the canyon is outstanding. The boat tour is a must to admire it. We saw several crocodiles, monkeys, and tropical birds. The guide was knowledgeable and nice. However, the trash floating around and infesting the sides of the canyon is terrible. Everyone making a profit from this natural beauty should be expected to help clean it.

I had no idea what to experience when we began the 20 mile boat trip up the canyon. I had no idea that we would have 3000 foot cliffs towering above us. That we would have views that reminded me of Yosemite several times. That we would stop to look at crocodiles and feel the spray coming off the cliffs... More
