We will cruise through the canals of Xochimilco all while (safely) enjoying authentic Mexican food, drinks and music!

The meeting point is Embarcadero Cuemanco.
*Tip: Try a Michelada (beer, lime and spices). The ideal way to start the day!

Once aboard our colorful trajinera, each guest/group will receive their own “Trajinera kit” to safely enjoy the canals of Xochimilco and festivities:
- We’ll tell you about the history of the site and take in the natural beauty of the area.
- You’ll learn how to drink Mezcal and Tequila the Mexican way (actually appreciating it and with delicious chasers).
- Hungry? Don't worry, a traditional homemade Mexican dish and salsa (special family recipe) will be served along with a variety of snacks.
- Mariachis & traditional Mexican music groups will join us for part of the journey where you'll be able to request songs and dance! (not included in price)
- We'll visit an Axolote sanctuary (an amphibian endemic to Xochimilco) and other special chinampas (man-made islands) along the way. ($1USD)
- There will be plenty of good Latin music and dancing, so be ready to enjoy a lively and fun atmosphere!

*We usually do this experience on weekends, but weekdays can also be arranged. Send us a message.
Bathrooms along the way are rustic and cost 5 pesos each time.

Maria was a lot of fun! During the tour she provided us with information about the man made islands in Xochimilco and provided us with tequila, mezcal, and some yummy tinga! We had a fun group too- we even hung out with some of the people we had met later in the evening, which was nice :) Thank you Maria for a good time!

Xochimilco was a primary highlight of my trip to Mexico City and it was all due to our guide, Oscar. He is outgoing, fun, knowledgeable, and handled our rowdy birthday group with tact. He was very personable and helped us with all of our questions. Our boat captain Beto also did a great job! I recommend Oscar to everyone who wants to do a Xochimilco tour.

Maria is an excellent host and guide. She was friendly and very easy to talk to. This always help make for a great experience. We had a great group so we visited a bunch and the camaraderie was excellent. What little we let her talk she described the tour very well. She seems to have great knowledge about Xochimilco and everything she described was spot on with what little research I had done before going. She recommended a mariachi for us and they were talented and awesome. She provided Mezcal and Tequila and nice meal for us all. The trip is definitely worth the time and money. We had a fantastic time!!!!
