The mighty San Vicente River, gives rise to some of the most impressive waterfalls in Chiapas due to its height, whose stepped drop reaches around 120 m. These beautiful waterfalls are surrounded by sugar cane plantations and tropical forest.

Waterfall chain

The way to explore the waterfalls is on foot, crossing various paths that lead to the viewpoints from which you can enjoy the spectacular views. The names of the waterfalls formed by the river are: El Suspiro, Ala de Ángel, Arcoíris, Quinceañera and Velo de Novia. The latter is the highest, with 70 m. Tall.
The river also forms pools of turquoise blue water ideal for swimming, the water is a bit cold but the heat of the walk will make you enjoy it. During the tour you can also get to know the local flora and fauna; orchids, bromeliads; trees of sabino, palomillo, chicozapote, cedar and mahogany, besides iguanas, rabbits, armadillos and diverse birds that could leave to your step.
As a reward, at the foot of the Velo de Novia, where the climb hike ends, there is a two-station zip line crossing over the impressive canyon formed by the San Vicente River; the second station passes right in front of the Bride's Veil. Dont miss the chance...
