is near San Cristobal in the state of Chiapas. It is an awe inspiring canyon whose dramatic cliffs of up to one kilometer high and the river's depth of up to 100 meters deep dwarf anything in its presence. We took a boat ride along part of the canyon which was most enjoyable. Wild monkeys and iguana inhabit the area.
One scene which Andrew and I will never forget was Christmas Tree falls. It was fantastic. The waterfall consists of unusual rock tiers which were covered in green ground
cover which looked like think moss, with purple flowers. During the wet season when the rain fall is heavy, the fall's water looks like snow falling from the bows of a Christmas tree.
