FLOATING GARDENS "XOCHIMILCO" BOAT TOUR

FLOATING GARDENS "XOCHIMILCO" BOAT TOUR

50.00

Did you know that Mexico City was surrounded by 5 lakes a long time ago and that people instead of cars moved by raft and their houses had docks instead of parking, as well as had water channels instead of streets? Well, I invite you to visit a place south of the city, called Xochimilco, where people still live like that.

Learn the very interesting history of this region, from Prehispanic to 20th century, visiting the main square and Xochimilco lake.

Enjoy this beautiful and colorful region while going through its canals on a boat, called trajinera, while I will tell you the history of the place and I will show you paintings and photos that will show you how Xochimilco looked many years ago.

Also, along the way, you will enjoy listening to some mariachi and marimba music, and trying some typical Mexican food, and why not some "michelada" beer.
