  Cañon del Sumidero
by darthmilmo

There are plenty of colectivos that ply the roads to Tuxla Gutierez. This same colectivos pass near the Cañon del Sumidero. Just head to the local bus station and find one of the touts yelling the destination. You may need to wait a while until all the seats are taken, but its well worth the wait! On your way back, just head back to the highway where they drop you off and pick a collectivo going back to town. The collectivo drops you off about 500 meters from the dock where the ships go out touring the Cañon del Sumidero.
