One of the highlights of my trip through Mexico was a visti to this canyon in Chiapas state, just east of capital Tuxtla Gutierez. This ride through the canyon on small speed boats (sometimes reaching the speed well over 50km/h) is fascinating. At one point the walls of the canyon reach the hight of over 1000m. Besides this work that Rio Grijalva did in million year you can expect too see variety of animals (birds, monkies, crocodiles...) and rich vegetation. If you are going this way, make sure to make a stop here and take this 2 hour adrenalin ride.
