  • If you love the traditions and good photos, this is u good place, both as a couple, as with friends. You can bring your food, but the best is when the food sellers spend on their chalupas offering dishes. There is good music or you can bring your own.

  • Dangerous place. Do not go there if you are not local. Our Uber driver helped us when a local was following us. We decided to turn back and go home. The driver said it was a good decision.
  • very diffent & inspiring to other seightseeing locations
  • 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.
  • Very crowded and busy
  • Mega Floating

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
