Marisqueria El Ceviche (Chiapas: Sumidero Canyon)

By in 02: Mexico

On the 2nd day in Chiapas we had the wonderful Mexican experience a lot of people go to Mexico for: drink and eat good food by the beach. Well there’s no beach here, but Chiapas has the beautiful and majestic Sumidero Canyon. We took a fantastic boat ride down the canyon that lasted 3+ hours. We saw beautiful geological formations, waterfalls and wildlife. There were only 2 restaurants toward the end of the canyon, our boat took us to this place.

His name is Paquito and he sang us beautiful songs. We all got some good tequila to go with the scenery and music.

The restaurant specialized in fresh seafood. Really good shrimp and octopus ceviche! I’ve never had ceviche so fresh and tasty before. Love how they mixed the flavors, it’s not too sour nor too overwhelming like a lot of ceviche out there. This beautiful photograph is taken by Monika, a professional photographer who’s with us.

Small crabs, a bit hard to pick out the meat from the shell but they’re tasty to chew on.

I wish I know the name of this dish, it’s incredibly delicious! Shrimp with this really tasty red sauce that’s perfect blends of tastes — savory yet sour; sweet yet spicy. The dish was gone in a few minutes.

Fish cooked in leaves. Juicy and fresh.

Love the mini merry-go-round inside the restaurant. Gorgeous view from where I’m sitting. Good food, good music, good tequila, good view…I couldn’t believe this is work!

    I think because Chiapas is still not so developed in tourism so that the most tourisy place is just basically good quality places. There’s not enough tourists to “cheat”.

  3. If only I had a dollar for every time I came here.. Superb writing.
