"Xochimilco" Xochimilco Tip by AcornMan

Xochimilco, Mexico City: 33 reviews and 48 photos


I've heard Xochimilco compared to Venice, and although that's quite a stretch, Xochimilco is a very interesting place. It is a series of canals in the southern part of the city where you can hire long colorful boats to take you out for as long as you want. It is a very popular destination for Mexico City families, especially on Sundays when you'll see huge groups of people relaxing and eating as their boats drift along the canals. People on smaller boats sell fresh-made food of all sorts, and other boats have mariachi bands that will serenade you for a fee. It's a great place to just relax and maybe have lunch.
