Latest Check-Ins

The entrance to the park and hence access to all viewpoints is closed since the beginning of the pandemic. Only the boat tours for 250pp (30-40ppl per boat) or private boats (3500/1-8p) are operating.

Entrance to park.
Closed TUESDAYS.
Perfect to check out canyon early.
NO dogs aloud :-(

Wie verschieden man Plätze wahrnehmen kann. Der lauteste Platz in nach einem Jahr Reise. Bis etwa 22Uhr fahren Collectivos von der hier befindlichen Sammelstelle ab. Gegenüber ist eine Kläranlage welche mit einem Elektromotor aufwartet. Die Polizei übernimmt ab etwa 22Uhr die Wache und lässt die ganze Nacht ziemlich laut das Radio laufen. Arbeiter kommen mit sämtlichen Fahrzeugen bereits vor um 6.... Tut euch einen Gefallen und sucht nach etwas ruhigerem.

Spent the night here after visiting the canyon. It is just a parking lot, not really flat, but it worked out well for us. The night was super quiet. Police is there 24h and you have free access to clean bathrooms. Police man also offered us to use shower and kitchen if we wanted. Good option for being so close to the city.

free but very noisy during the night. Can walk in early in the morning but then forbidden during the day.

Perfecto lugar pra pasar la noche. Es muy tranquilo, hay baños y nos dejaron enchufar nuestro RV toda la noche.
La entrada vale $35.76 por persona y los martes está cerrado el parque.
El horario es de 8 a 5 pm

Arrived late, asked guard about staying, he pointed to where we could sleep. Guarded all night. Safe and quiet. We did enter the park the next morning, but you could get away without going, and just sleeping here.

We were stuck in Tuxtla on a weekend with vehicle problems, so we decided to check this place out. It was a bit late to enter the park so the officer at the gate offered us to spend the night in the parking lot. He was very friendly, placed a pylon about 3 meters behind our truck to make sure nobody would block access, gave us tons of brochures and maps of places to visit in Chiapas. Not the most picturesque place to camp but still a notch above Pemex or Walmart. Safe, access to clean washrooms 24/7.

Not very level but ok for a free night. No problem to spend the night. You cannot stay in the parkfor the night but here at the entrance it's ok.
