Leaving San Cristobal around 9am with the Spanish-speaking group, we changed minibuses when we arrived in Tuxtla Gutierrez to join the English-speaking guide Eduardo, who was very friendly. The cruise in the canyon is absolutely beautiful. We saw crocodiles, herons and pelicans, but on the other hand the spider monkeys remained hidden. We continued with the visit of Chiapa del Corso where we had lunch. Some beautiful squares with large kapok trees. Finally the visit ended with the viewpoints (miradors) on the canyon which give beautiful photos. Return to San Cristobal around 6 p.m.

The pick up was an hour late without any communication, which was frustrating as we could have grabbed a coffee or something instead of just waiting in the dark. The driving was a little crazy, but that seemed to be the case in the whole region. The trip itself was really great. They provided an English translator that gave us information on the boat as well as a personal walking tour in Chiapa de Corzo. Canyon was beautiful. Look out points were cool. Had an amazing buffet lunch at a local spot in Chiapa de Corzo. The logistics just could have been improved.

We had an amazing day visiting the canyon and Chiapa de Corzo. Our guide Eduardo was brilliant and so kind to translate the tour into English for us. A really memorable and special day, would definitely recommend!

A great trip with a very good guide. He was extremely interactive and did not hesitate to translate into different languages to ensure incusivity. Would highly reccommend!

The tour is amazing on its own but the addition of our extremely friendly, fun, and informative English-speaking guide Eduardo made it an even better experience!
