Jaime and I went on a tour to Sumidero Canyon today. A van took us about an hour away and 5,000 feet lower in elevation to the start of a boat ride through the canyon. The cliffs towered 2,500 feet above the river. It was truly spectacular. The only ugly part was coming around a bend and seeing trash – mainly plastic bottles – in some of the coves.
I had asked about swimming when booking the tour but after seeing the muddy brown water and these guys I’m glad it wasn’t part of the tour.
