  • In the town of Xochimilco 45 minutes from the city of Mexico is this attraction, you can go in the light train which takes station Taxqueña, truth for visiting this attraction journey for the second time to Mexico already on the first visit I could not do it due to lack of time, but the truth I already disillusioned that the lagoon is dirty and all piled up in piers boats for being a tourist should keep it better, also I went on weekday and as there is a lot of people wanted to charge 350 pesos per person being this cost by barca and not per person.
