Sumidero Canyon National Park Tours

Sumidero Canyon National Park
Formed by a geological fault some 40 million years ago, the immense Sumidero canyon is one of the most impressive natural wonders of Chiapas, with the canyon walls reaching heights of up to 1,000 meters and the Grijalva River dotted with waterfalls and caves.

While a number of lookout points offer a view of the canyon from above, the most popular way to explore the Sumidero Canyon National Park is by boat, cruising downstream from Chiapa de Corzo and winding through the gorge towards the Chicoasén Dam and lake. Hemmed in by towering cliffs and dense jungle, this is one of Mexico’s most dramatic cruises and there are a number of key attractions to look out for en route, most notably the aptly nicknamed Cueva de Colores or Cave of Colors and the Árbol de Navidad or ‘Christmas Tree’ waterfall, where the series of algae covered rocks really do resemble a Christmas tree.

Practical Info

Sumidero Canyon National Park is located between Tuxtla Gutiérrez and Chiapa de Corzo and is typically visited by boat from Chiapa de Corzo for about 160 pesos per person.
