Cañón del Sumidero

Posted by admin On November - 24 - 2008

One day of my days in San Christobal de las Casas I made a trip to the Cañón del Sumidero. To both sides of Río Grijalva rock formations can loom up to 1000m height. I felt so small in between those majestic mountains. While enjoying the landscape from the boat on the river banks you can watch various crocodiles and the typical black vultures.
I have seen crocs before but these here came really close and I was able to take great photos….
The turning point of that cruise is the Chicoasén dam what with its 261m high walls belongs to the ten biggest of its kind on earth. After the boat trip I stopped shortly in Chiapa de Corzo the town near by for a quick snack and looking at some architecture…

Chiapa de Corzo is just a small town near the Cañón del Sumidero. So we stopped for lunch over there for a quick walk through town. I noticed a few beautiful buildings and I really like these little details like colorful painted walls and ornaments at the windows… or all the colorful flags all over...
