Cañón de Sumidero/ Sumidero Canyon
We took a bus & boat tour from San Cristóbal de las Casas to the beautiful canyon of Sumidero. A 50 minute busride to the small boat, and then a 2 hour boat-ride through the canyon and back.
At some points (according to the guide) the sides of the canyon rises a full kilometer above the water. It used to be even higher, but the river is now dammed and the water level is higher, to help produce a large portion of méxicos electricity.
Besides the amazing canyon itself we saw a lot of beautiful birds, spidermonkeys and a few lazy crocodiles.
