ADVENTURE TRAVEL IN MEXICO

RAPPELLING IN CHIAPAS

The craggy mountains, cascades and forest ravines in the State of Chiapas are the ideal settings for rappelling descends. We have the following amongst the best places:
  • Cañón de Sumidero National Park: the Tyrolese station is located in a ravine within this superb natural area, and there you can rappel along class 4 routes, with extremely vertical cliffs that require the mastering of the progressive techniques on rope descending. For experts only. There are also simpler sectors with cliffs just 15 metres high.
    The Park is located 18 kilometres away from Tuxtla Gutierrez, the Capital of the State of Chiapas.

  • El Arcotete: this is an impressive natural tunnel carved by the waters of the River Fogótico. Fantastic descends can be achieved from its 35-metre high summit. The zone presents circuits classes 2 and 4. The former has little physical impact, with rather easy sectors where you would not need to know especial progression techniques; the latter demands a bigger effort and much dexterity regarding progressive descends.
    It is located at 4 kilometres from San Cristóbal de las Casas and at 98 kilometres from Tuxtla Gutierrez, the Capital of the State of Chiapas. Arcotete can be visited throughout the year, although it is advisable to do it during the dry season, from December to April.

  • High Plateau of Copoya: it is an important mass of high quality limestone perfect for rock scaling and rappelling. It has excellent descending sectors with different classes of difficulty. It is located at 30 minutes by foot from Tuxtla Gutierrez, the Capital of the State of Chiapas.

  • Sima de las Cotorras: it is an impressive circular depression more than 100 metres deep with 300 metres of diameter. You descend to a ledge located 40 metres below its summit. It is a class 4 route, thus you need to be familiar with progressive descend techniques.
    Its name (Pit of the Parrots) makes reference to the thousands of parrots nesting in the place. It is also known as Sima del Copal (Pit of the Copal) due to the abundance of trees of this species. Sportspeople will be able to appreciate numerous rock paintings while rappelling in this area.
    It is located 19 kilometres away from Ocozocoautla de Espinoza and at 26 kilometres from Tuxtla Gutierrez, the Capital of the State of Chiapas.
