Cañon del Sumidero

For our last day in Mexico, we decided to take one of the local collectivos from San Cristobal to a neighboring town called Chiapa de Corzo to check out the Cañon del Sumidero. Its cliffs are 900 meters high and overlook the Grijalva River. We took a boat tour through the Cañon and it was worth every penny. The scenery was gorgeous!

We also got to see quite a few different animals (some of which proved to be a little too close for comfort)...

There was also a shrine to the man that had worked to have the Cañon declared a national park.

All in all, a cool way to spend an afternoon.
