  • If you want to have fun from beginning to end, no doubt Xoximilco is a great option. qualities? several: 1.-no doubt live that "traditional Xochimilco" with good music, environment, channels are very well designed and music stations will allow that the party never ends. 2 comes and comes and comes and comes very rich traditional Mexican food from Huitlacoche to aphrodisiacs grasshoppers; obviously not the Tequila and beer. 3. great atmosphere the staff of animators in trajinera are the best; "in addition carry machine touches" seal of the Xochimilco's CDMX. 4. very safe and well thought out. 5. the super environment. XOXIMILCO is a must.

  • In XOXIMILCO a true Mexican fiesta is experienced. Typical dishes, good music, lots of tequila; It is best to be able to enjoy it with friends and with people from other countries who are transformed into one big family who enjoys everything offers place for three hours. Jesus (Chuy) the best animator! The CHIHUAHUA trajinera lived a big party.

  • An authentic Mexican Party on floats. Excellent for parties and for Mexican music lovers. Dinner is delicious, varied and very traditional. The guides school you about mexican traditions as you Party and have a blast!
  • Very fun night. Would have been better with more friends. Only 2 of us went and had a great time.
  • Seriously, this is not a must do if you are near Cancun. You are on a boat, they provide you some Mexican food and you can have unlimited beer and tequila (it's not Sierra, that's the good part). But besides that nothing special happens. You cross the sea several times, pass some music groups, okay some were really good, and you are forced to scream Mexican phrases from one boad to the other. Except of "Can you say this, can you say that" nothing really exciting happens on the boad. You will be ask to do crazy dances in the front of the boad or do some games, which might be fun if you are really filled up. Overall if you like this kind of entertainment it's worth a try, at least once, but it's not a mandatory must do on your Mexico checklist.
  • An absolutely fabulous way to spend our last night in Cancun. We ate , we sang, we danced, we laughed and laughed.
  • Love it.. Amazingly beautiful. Friendly people
