This geological fault flows into the hydroelectric dam known as Chicoasén. If you stay alert, you might see crocodiles and exotic birds during about two hours of the boat tour. As long as you are entering the canyon, you begin to feel yourself smaller. It´s cliffs are over a kilometer above the river level. There is a legend that says the native people of the region wouldn´t want to be conquered so they made a massive suicide from the top of the canyon thinking they would be “free” after death. This canyon is so important that the silhouette that makes is actually the base of the Coat of Arms of the State of Chiapas and of course is one of the most important tourist attractions.
