Cañoneros!

A day trip from San Cristobal de las Casas, the capital of Chiapas State, to Cañon del Sumidero. Here it is!

We weren´t going to even be in San Cristobal on this day, but we got talking to a couple of Israelis at the Hostel the night before and decided to stay on so we could go croc hunting:


We were "lucky" to see so many crocs - about 10 or 12. Others who went later in the day only saw 1, and they thought it was probably dead, since it stayed in exactly the same position for over an hour. Our crocs were menacing us: Debs in particular.


Our boat driver also mercilessly buzzed a huge flock of little black water birds of some description, despite the clearly displayed "Don´t disturb the wildlife" signs at the start of the tour ;-)
