Cañon del Sumidero - Boating Chiapa De Corzo - Mexico

Crocodiles, Vultures, and Rodents, oh my! Guides point out all these creatures and more on the 35 km. trip through the canyon (not the yellow brick road). The ride starts at one of three embarcaderos in Chiapa de Corzo or one of two in Cahauré, just to the east. Hefty guys bolt adventurous visitors into life jackets, load them into 15-person motorboats, and speed off with them as if in competition with the other lancha companies. As the boat zooms along, the canyon walls grow to a towering height of 800 m (2624 feet). From time to time, the guide suddenly cuts the motor to point out a crocodile hangout, a vulture feeding ground, or the spectacular “Christmas Tree” rock and plant overhang created by the waterfall overhead. The trip thrills people of all ages. Bring drinking water, sunscreen, and an adventurous spirit.
