"XOCHIMILCO - floating islands" Xochimilco Tip by brighteyes79

Xochimilco, Mexico City: 33 reviews and 48 photos

It's a nice get away from the hectic city center. During the weekend it's pretty busy there to because it seems to be a favourite place to a lot of Mexicans. But still, there is a very nice atmosphere.

You can take any boat to get to the different islands. The view of these colorful boats named after women is so nice. You will even see boats with a group of mariachis on it who will sing to you 'for a good price'.

There are several markets on the islands where you can buy typical Mexican cloths, food, objects.

Directions: It's easy to reach by metro and then take either a bus direction Xochimilco or go on foot.
