2014 Sumidero Canyon, MEXICO

I’ve been in Guatemala 3 months now so I figured it was time for a little side trip.  I originally decided to go to Costa Rica but the week before this planned trip I got really sick and I wasn’t looking forward to a 2+ day bus ride.  So I decided on San Cristobal de las Casas (SCDLC), Chiapas, Mexico.  I went there 2 years ago but didn’t do everything I had wanted to do so I figured I would go back.  ~~ He estado en Guatemala 3 meses y decidi tomar un pequeño viaje.  Originalmente queria ir a Costa Rica pero la semana antes de irme estaba bien enferma y no queria tomar un bus por 2 dias o mas.  Decidi ir a San Cristobal de las Casas (SCDLC).  Fui hace dos años pero no ice todo lo que queria hacer cuando fui.  Decidi volver.

I was in SCDLC 2 years ago and loved it so I decided to return.  Last time I went to the pyramids so this time around I decided to go to the Sumidero Canyon.  A shuttle picked us up at the Central Park and drove us to the town of Chiapa de Corzo where we would catch our  boat.  ~~  Estube en SCDLC hace 2 años y me encanto.  La ultima vez fui a las piramides entonces esta vez decidi ir al Cañon Sumidero.  Nos recogio un minibus en el parque central que nos llevo al pueblo de Chiapa de Corzo donde nos subimos en la lancha.

And of course crocodiles. ~~  Y crocodilos por su puesto.

These are 4 of the 5 crocodiles we saw that day.

There are all kinds of features along the way and here are a couple I took pictures of.  This is a naturally occurring seahorse formation although you’re going to have to look closely.  ~~  Tambien hay muchas cosas que se ven en el viaje y aqui les tome algunas fotos.   La primer foto es una formacion natural que parece caballito de mar pero tienen que ver de cerquita.

Unfortunately there’s a lot of trash too.  ~~  Desafortunadamente tambien hay much basura.

But in the end, the canyon was beautiful.  ~~  Pero al final de todo, el cañon estaba bien bonito.
