El Boquer贸n - Hiking El Estor - Guatemala

Although the spectacular cliff faces of El Boquer贸n tower an impressive 250 meters (820 ft) above the R铆o Sauce, the canyon is completely hidden from view as you pass by it only 500 meters (1640 ft) away on the road to El Estor. Indeed, the only way to access the canyon is by boat. In El Estor you will find plenty of boatmen willing to take you, for a small fee, through the ravine and back again, round trip taking about an hour. They will also drop you off and come back for you later if you want to hike further into the canyon, but this is not an easy stroll and you need to be prepared to wrestle with the jungle en route.
