This is one of Chiapas landmark... Cañon del Sumidero and you can't leave without experience this magnificent scenic paradise. It is beautiful but be careful with mosquitoes they are really big and sting badly. But overall you'll have an amazing experience.

You just have to see it to believe it. Beautiful to say the least. Light hiking, scenic drive, boat rides available. You have to experience both ways.

This place is amazing beautiful. All of the miradores give you an awesome view of the canyon. The entrance fee is minimal. Take a tour or rent a car. Its a must do when in Chiapas. Bring your bug spray!
