Overview
The town of Chiapa de Corzo is much more than a jetty to take the boat to the Cañon del Sumidero! This town has history and tradition from pre-Hispanic times that its people proudly celebrate every year during the two weeks of JANUARY: the Fiesta Grande.
The Parachico dance has been designated an Intangible CULTURAL HERITAGE by UNESCO since 2009.

We will start with a tour on the BOAT (2.5 hours NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE) through the Sumidero Canyon.

We invite you on a tour all year round to learn about the history of the Parachicos and legends, to visit traditional houses and the ARTISANS who work to prepare the Fiesta Grande.

We are going to savor local dishes such as pepita con tasajo and pozol which have their origin in pre-Hispanic times!
