The itinerary said we were going on a boat ride for about three hours on the Sumidero Canyon. Of course with no point of reference, it seemed like a long, long time to be on a boat ride. The last time I had done something like that had been deep-sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. IF this was anything like that, I would just jump overboard and end it in an hour. There is nothing like seasickness when one cannot get back to shore on a small boat! Trust me.
Luckily that was not the case in this instance. To say it was breathtakingly beautiful and amazing would be a great understatement.
Arriving in Chiapa de Corzo, where it was tropical and warm after the cold in San Cristobal was the first great thing. We enjoyed our hotel immensely. Swimming in the pool, having drinks at the bar in the hotel and snacks. Aaah, this was the life. The town is quite fascinating. It's history is intriguing. And the folk art, oh my, the folk art. Magnificent.
The next day we headed to a boat launch area which looked like a place where you would take a speedboat. Nothing identified at the beginning what we were going to see.
Reluctantly, the next day we headed back to Tuxtla Guiterrez and the flight to Toluca and ultimately home to San Miguel.
So much to see, so much to absorb and such great memories. Some day..........I'll be back there!
