Antigua Iglesia Quechula
Presa Nezahualcóyotl

Seen from the sky, the northwest of Chiapas revolves around a huge blue stain, the Presa Nezahualcóyotl or Malpaso. This is the dam that the Río Negro and Río La Venta eventually reach, as well as the Río Grijalva from the east, after having left the Cañón del Sumidero behind. 

Several towns were submerged beneath the dam, including the Iglesia de Quechula, a church which can be seen depending on how high the water level is: sometimes only the arches of its bell towers peek out of the water, and at other moments the whole building is completely revealed. 

In order to find the church or to go, fishing rod in hand, to catch black seabream, tilapia, catfish, and silver sardines, take a boat trip departing from the dam’s north bank, in the tourist center Rancho del Lago del Rey Nezahualcóyotl, which has ecological rooms with lake views.
