Xochimilco

Xochimilco (southern outskirts of Mexico City) – located 45 minutes outside of downtown Mexico City, Xochimilco is the last remnants of a vast water transport system built by the Aztecs, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Its neighborhoods are full of tradition and respect for nature. A.K.A. the “Venice of Mexico”, this is one of the most important tourist destinations in Mexico City, in which you float through canals in traditional trajinera boats. During the tour, you will come across boats with mariachis players, ‘ranchero’ tri and marimbas who will offer to play you a few songs and liven up your evening.
