What to do in Tuxtla Gutierrez
One of the most interesting things to do from Tuxtla Gutierrez is to sail through the spectacularly narrow and high cliffs of the Sumidero Canyon, located just five miles outside of Tuxtla. In places, the canyon walls reach up as high as 3,000 feet above the Grijalva River. This stunning natural formation is a must-see for anyone coming to Tuxtla. In addition, visitors to Tuxtla Gutierrez should’t miss the opportunity to dine at Las Pichanchas, a local institution. Part restaurant, part folkloric performance space and cultural center, there’s no better place than Las Pinchanchas to sample local cuisine and beat the heat with a cold beer or lemonade.
