Cañón del Sumidero

cañón

Located just outside Tuxtla Gutiérrez in the town of Chiapa de Corzo is the magnificent Cañón del Sumidero.  The canon walls reach amazing heights of as much as 800 meters over head.  The Rio Grijalva flows through the canon and from time to time it’s possible to spot crocodiles, several species of birds and the occasional monkey.  To my disappointment there weren’t any monkeys hanging around on the day we visited but we were able to spot a couple of crocodiles.  You can see one of them in this picture, just behind and to the right of Carlos.
