Discover our Mexican Venice


Xochimilco is one of the most emblematic neighborhoods in México City, it is well known for the channels and the islands that the Aztecs used for growing food and flowers.

Nowadays we are still able to visit this beautiful place and enjoy nature in the middle of the city.

The tour will start on a traditional Mexican market, we will be walking around this place, getting to know some of the traditions, fruits, vegetables, and the local lifestyle, if you feel hungry or if you are willing to try some street food, here we will be able to eat a quesadilla, a taco or a handmade tortilla and try the flavors of this amazing place.

After a nice walk, we will be heading to the channels for a 3-hour trajinera sail (traditional Mexican boats), where you will learn about this traditional ancient technique of growing in the channels.
