Here, admire the outstanding Mudejar-style brickwork and colorful crafts for sale nearby.As you head back toward Tuxtla Gutiérrez, you'll stop at several viewing spots to see Sumidero Canyon from a different perspective.

Here, admire a scenic vista of the Grijalva River from above, then relax on the return drive to your hotel.
