  • I love the site, I felt in Mexico! He liked to see how Mexican families lunch on family, the mariachis, flowers, yet much remains to me because the country is very big, but so far is what I liked more!

  • The floating gardens of Xochimilco are a marvel not only for tourists, as many locals spend the afternoon including Sunday.

  • On weekends, this place really comes to life, with families renting out boats to ride through the waterways, listening to roving bands, and enjoying food and drinks from vendors who float by. It's worth doing one's homework on the official boat rental rates beforehand, as some less reputable guides will charge double to triple the normal price, if you don't know better. Best done as a medium to large group activity.
  • Mega Floating
