Where you'll be

Xochimilco, declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, means "flower field" and refers to the many flowers and other crops that have been grown here on chinampas (small artificial islands) since the pre-Hispanic period. Discover its colors, sounds and natural beauty as you float along the canals lined with gardens and curtains of trees on brightly decorated trajineras (traditional boat). Take this magnificent tour as you enjoy local delicacies!
