Description

Departing from San Cristobal de las Casas you will make the journey through the Sumidero Canyon, one of the most spectacular in Mexico. With its abundant flora and fauna, beautiful waterfalls and impressive natural colors, it will be a wonderful experience.

In its almost vertical walls, we can find geological wonders, such as the so-called Christmas Tree waterfall and the Cave of Colors. The characteristics of the place have allowed the development of an abundant and diverse natural wealth, which has allowed the title of “National Park”, decreed in 1980.

The beauty of the Sumidero Canyon is completed with the variety of wildlife that lives in the place, being one of the last refuges of many species in danger of extinction. The spider monkey, river crocodile, white-tailed deer, anteater and king vulture are examples of this.

At the end of the tour we have an hour free to visit Chiapa de Corzo, a beautiful Magical Town considered one of the oldest towns in the American continent, founded in March 1528.
