Enjoy a ride on a boat, explore the neighborhoods of San Angel and Coyoacan and admire the University's murals.
The south of Mexico City is full of surprises.
If you have already visited the Historical Center, the South of Mexico City is waiting for you to see the beautiful and colorful houses that the Spanish conquistadors built after the Aztec Empire was defeated. Cortés chose to settle in the south of Tenochtitlan (Coyoacan's neighborhood today). You will walk on the same streets where the first Spanish in Mexico lived almost 500 years ago!
Coyoacan is a bohemian neighborhood where the famous Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived. It is also known for its Franciscan ex-monastery, markets, handicrafts, coffee shops, and its delicious churros.
The National University and Xochimilco are both World Heritage places that no one should miss. In Xochimilco, you will leave the traffic behind on a colorful boat and see the chinampas (floating gardens) with flowers.
San Angel is a fancy area where the wealthy built their vacation homes. It is a great place to get nice handicrafts and try good Mexican food.

Juan was simply outstanding. He tailored the details of the tour to our interests and his knowledge of history was exceptional. He even came prepared with photos to help explain the development of the Xochimilco canal system. We have traveled extensively and Juan is one of the top guides that we have encountered anywhere.
