Full description
Embark on amazing experience to Sumidero National Park. Explore Sumidero Canyon and the town of Chiapa de Corzo on this 9-hour tour from San Cristobal. Begin with a 45-minute drive through the mountains, along a scenic highway toward Tuxtla Gutierrez. Admire the beautiful panoramic views as you pass through the clouds to reach the canyon.

The pick up was an hour late without any communication, which was frustrating as we could have grabbed a coffee or something instead of just waiting in the dark. The driving was a little crazy, but that seemed to be the case in the whole region. The trip itself was really great. They provided an English translator that gave us information on the boat as well as a personal walking tour in Chiapa de Corzo. Canyon was beautiful. Look out points were cool. Had an amazing buffet lunch at a local spot in Chiapa de Corzo. The logistics just could have been improved.

Leaving San Cristobal around 9am with the Spanish-speaking group, we changed minibuses when we arrived in Tuxtla Gutierrez to join the English-speaking guide Eduardo, who was very friendly. The cruise in the canyon is absolutely beautiful. We saw crocodiles, herons and pelicans, but on the other hand the spider monkeys remained hidden. We continued with the visit of Chiapa del Corso where we had lunch. Some beautiful squares with large kapok trees. Finally the visit ended with the viewpoints (miradors) on the canyon which give beautiful photos. Return to San Cristobal around 6 p.m.

The tour itself was very good and Eduardo the guide was excellent. Only problem was the pick up. 1 hour late, I really had to call/mail to figure out what was happening. Lucky I had some Spanish. Clearer update on pickup times are necessary. The get your guide team couldn't get in touch with Eco tours. It was me in the end.
