Sumidero Canyon is a deep natural canyon located in the southern Mexico state of Chiapas. The canyon’s creation began around the same time as the Grand Canyon, by a crack in the area’s crust and subsequent erosion by the Grijalva River, which still runs through the canyon. Sumidero Canyon has vertical walls which reach as high as 3,300 ft, with the river turning up to 90 degrees at a time during the 8.1 mi length of the narrow passage.
We loved doing the two hour high speed boat trip up Sumidero Canyon. On the way we had to hold on to our hats, saw sheer cliffs, lots of birds, monkeys playing, the Christmas tree waterfall, and other amazing nature sights. You HAVE to check out the video below that I made of our time in Sumidero Canyon. I think you will fall in love with this part of Mexico. Also, please share, comment, and like the video to help us get it out to more and more people. Thank you.
