Instant Memories: Sumidero Canyon

By Sergio Camalich

Continuing with my series of Instant Memories, here’s the one from my trip to the Sumidero Canyon, the first one from my journey through Latin America.

With its 1000 meters, from the surface of the Grijalva River to the top of the canyon, it is one of the biggest canyons in the world and a really beautiful one.

I had the privilege of seating next to the captain, on top of everyone else. From there, I was able not only to take some cool photos but to experience the whole Sumidero Canyon without any obstruction.

Flowing down the river on a motorised boat, we spotted crocodiles, spider monkeys, pelicans and lots of other species of birds.

Being from the desert, it’s still weird for me to see all this life flowing from everywhere I look.

The intense green of the trees, the breeze from the waterfalls falling down the canyon walls and the calmness you experience despite being inside the guts of this passive monster, left me speechless.


Where next?
