  • We rented a 'swan 'and took it around for an hour. It was very relaxed, but do know you can go really far with them. It is fun to see the other floating around and relax in the sun though.  more »

  • Nice place to go with family, must consider that it is not the cleanest place but if one of the busiest in the city of Mexico

  • You can ride a boat and spend a pleasant evening. This dirty, ergo, there is algae, ergo, this green water, not cleaned and caregivers in their ignorance they say so it must be "because the animals that live there as well should be". The boats also need maintenance and cleanliness

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.
