Chiapa de Corzo Tours

Chiapa de Corzo
A popular day trip from the state capital of Tuxtla, the small colonial town of Chiapa de Corzo lies on the Rio Grijalva and is the starting point for boat rides through the Sumidero Canyon National Park. Although inhabited since prehistoric times, Chiapa de Corzo is best known as the region’s oldest Spanish settlement, founded in 1528, and traces of its past can be seen in its exquisitely preserved colonial architecture. The red-brick mudejar-style La Pila Fountain (Fuente Colonial) is the grand centerpiece of the central Plaza Ángel Albino Corzo, dating back to the 16th century and shaped like the Spanish crown, while one block south, the Santo Domingo Church (Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman) is famous for its original copper and silver bell and now houses a traditional handicraft museum.

The town is also renowned for its annual Feria de Enero festival, a colorful carnival held each January in honor of the feast of San Sebastian, when marching bands and dancing troops take to the streets for a vibrant procession and the city hosts an enormous street party. The highlight of the festival is the performance of the Dance of the Parachicos, a cultural tradition so important it’s been added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. 

Practical Info

Chiapa de Corzo lies on the north bank of the Rio Grijalva about 12 kilometers east of Tuxtla.

star-4.5
One of the natural destinations that attracts tourists of all nationalities year after year. A ride that takes place aboard a boat that we will board at the Cahuaré jetty, with some luck you can observe native species of the Canyon and a great diversity of birds and flora. During the trip you can see a waterfall considered one of the most beautiful natural jewels of Chiapas, the Christmas tree-shaped waterfall, 250 meters high, was created because the water polished the stone, the same moisture caused that the moss would grow, which allowed the pine shape to be created. During the rainy season it is a natural attraction that any visitor who board a boat and travels through the waters of Sumidero Canyon can admire.
