The floating gardens of Xochimilco, islands created by trees rooted in shallow waters, were engineered by indigenous peoples long before the arrival of Europeans in 1521. Among the floating gardens wind a network of canals with festive gondolas that allow visitors to explore nature in this area. We will also visit the plaza and 16th century church village of Xochimilco, with its pleasant plaza and market, as well as its impressive 16th century parish church.

If you wish, we can proceed to the nearby Dolores Olmedo Museum (Hacienda de La Noria, meaning "water wheel") a former hacienda with fabulous grounds and a noteworthy collection of paintings by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. An outdoor café provides a nice resting spot, with a small but tasty menu of Mexican dishes.
