Tuxtla and the Sumidero Canyon

After Palenque, we stopped in Tuxtla as a stopover on our way back to the boat, so we had two 6-hour bus rides rather than one really long ride across Chiapas. And we got to visit Sumidero canyon.

The canyon: High walls, deep water, monkeys, and a crocodile. The dam at the end of the canyon supplies about half of the electricity to Mexico. And at the dam there were pangas ready to sell us beer and snacks!

There were some well-fed spider monkeys on the boat tour.
