This was a highlight of our Mexico travels so far. Every part was so convenient in terms of picking us up from the airport and then taking us on to San Cristobal afterwards. The tour itself was amazing. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. The canyon was stunning and the boat guide knew exactly where to find the crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas etc. Highly recommend this tour!

Great tour of Cañon del Sumidero
TaniaItzel_R, Jul 2023
It was a great tour - We were concerned at the start that this tour would be longer than advertised but we were back on time to San Cristóbal de Las Casas to eat and then head to the airport for our night flight. Felt safe all the time. Of all the tour operators we interacted with - this one was the one with the friendliest driver and the newest (and best-kept) vehicle.

Over-sold by Viator
Faith_C, Mar 2023
The boat trip was very good. The guides were professional and informative. However, there is no hike nor swimming as indicated in the literature you market. It was way over-sold and for that reason, 3-stars.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hello Faith_C Thank you for sharing your comments with us! we appreciate you had a great time. About hiking or swimming is not allowed since this is a UNESCO World Heritage, as written in the description there is wildlife such as crocodiles so is not safe or possible to swim. I already reviewed all the tour information and these activities are not mentioned. I'm sorry you had a bad impression. Hope to see you soon All best
Nice day in the canyon
Dimitri_S, Mar 2023
We first did two viewpoints of the canyon from above and afterwards we went on the boat through the canyon. Wonderful! Our captain was very knowledgeable about the canyon and the species living there. He let us see monkeys, a crocodile and a iguana. The boat ride ended in Chiapa de Corso where we had about 1h30 of free time which was frankly too long. It wasn't really appealing to have lunch there so we decided to have lunch back in Sant Cristóbal.

Beatrice_V, Nov 2022
The canyon is amazing and the trip was well organized. The driver picked us up at Tuxla airport and was already there waiting for us when our flight landed and dropped us at our hotel in San Cristobal de las casas. The guided in the canyon stopped at the strategic points to explain and let us take pictures. We even saw crocodiles, monkeys, an iguana and a lot of birds.

Una gran experiencia
Seung, Jul 2021
This was such a great experience. It was only me and an older couple on the tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable and was super kind. My Spanish is passable but at the times I didn’t understand, he translated for me one-on-one. He also taught me how to say phrases in Tzotzil which was super useful for Chiapa de Corzo. I also had an unforgettable meal there. Thanks to his experience and knowledge, I had an amazing time. I even booked two more tours through his company because I had an amazing time. Jalapeño Tours in San Cristóbal de las Casas is the local company. I booked tours to Chamula and Zinacantán and another one to Palenque.

Axelle_D, Aug 2023
Tres bon tour. Beaucoup de voiture au début pour faire 3 point de vue. Pas forcément le plus intéressant a mon goût. Mais la croisière sur l'eau est magnifique et vaut largement le détour
