"Canon Sumidero" Mexico Things to Do Tip by chris_i79

Mexico Things to Do: 627 reviews and 826 photos


Located in the state of Chiapas, this massive canyon is located near the city of Tuxtla Gutierrez. Accsessible only by boat, this canyon stretches up to 1km above the water as your guide navigates the river. If you leave early and you are lucky you will view wildlife at the waters edge. Another option is to spend the afternoon at the canyons resort, located in the middle of the park. Here you can enjoy nature trails, a small zoo of local animals, a restaurant and swimming pool, kayaks and much more.
