What people are saying about Sumidero Canyon, Mexico

The canyon is amazing and this tour provides the added bonus of being able to do a one way trip along it as well as go to some stunning viewpoints. The boat trip was very safe and well organised and the guide was very good, we even saw crocodiles on the river bank. The mini van is standard Mexican fare with minimal seat belts, average air con and lots of people squashed in but was fine'. Would recommend the trip as such an amazing place to visit.

Punctual pickup, nice chauffeur, good guide, regular information about the trip. 2 viewpoints visited with great views. The 2 hour boat trip through the Canon is a highlight. Immediately again. It is good to visit the canon from above and below!

What a magical experience and would recommend to anyone. Everyone from our hotel pickup, translator to our boat driver were all just excellent. Plan to return next May and will for sure book this experience for my mom. A+++++++++ all the way!

Very professional, fun activities, very worthwhile. We were given an english guide who was really nice and extremely helpful, and made sure we got the most out of the day

Highly recommended experience, very friendly driver and very nice visits. Recommend bringing water, hat and sunscreen.
