El Chorreadero is popular weekend destination for the locals from San Cristobal de las Casas. It is often crowded on weekends, as the place offers a cool river for bathing and a waterfall called Cascada El Chorreadero. And finally there is a river cave named Cueva El Chorreadero. The cave is used by various operators, mostly from Chiapas, for full day cave trekking tours. The cave is a river cave and subject to flooding so tours are only offered during the dry season. The tour lasts several hours and requires climbing and swimming, despite what you might read on the website of the operator you need a good physical fitness. Wetsuits, helmets and headlamps are provided.
