  • Beautiful large green area with pond, but make it a bit melancholic atmosphere paddleboats, perhaps because it is a fallback to the remoteness of the sea. Popular with families and children's playground.

  • This is a beautiful park and you should definitely check it out. However if you want to go out on a boat, do not rent one of the paddle boats. They are very uncomfortable and difficult to use. You wou...  more »
  • Before you hop on your boat (there's pedal boats that are in the shape of swans if you're into that), grab some snacks or a drink to bring on with you! Or, if it's a particularly nice day out, you can...  more »

  • Wonderful place, especially if you just want to relax and let yourself go.If you can, try to rent a boat, believe me, you won't regret it.
  • A place where you can rent boats, because it is for 2 or up to 5 people, the place is well maintained, you can find some ducks, or just to enjoy the surroundings of the Lake there are benches to sit, an environment quiet and familiar, a bit full on weekend and vacation, place close to areas such as Chapultepec, reform, constituents

  • Chapultepeec Lake is a very quiet and relaxing place to spend the evening there. Here you can rent rowing, pedal, or even the classic swan boats. In the rental of a boat life can give you your vest also allow you to take pictures and video. Note that the view from the CDMX Lake is spectacular. A point is less that is sometimes a little dirty this makes that there is so many ducks. But I recommend out of that lot.

  • Very nice, quiet and well located, near the entrances of reform which makes it close to the main public transport as the Auditorium metro and metrobus line 7 (of reform), clean inside of what is worth and there is still much fauna of Lake like ducks and other birds. But very few. The typical boats where they paddle partner and things cheesy of that type, is recommended to visit the Lake House and do not feed birds in the water.

  • Grand place. A space where you can commune with nature. Recommended for all the public taking into account that it has more sites to its around as the Zoo and the castle of Chapultepec.
