Very Unique experience. Kind of like Vienna in Mexico!. You can hire a boat for your group or pay to join a boat with others. There are mariachi bands, and boats with vendors selling food and drinks

A water ride on the canals of Xochimilco is an appealing attraction. It offers a pendulum of activity for visitors who desire peaceful quietude or raucous merriment. The level of activity is dependent on day of week and time you choose to visit. My husband...More

We went on a Thursday, I think a weekend would have been better. We were only ones on the canals, very tranquil. Our guide and boatman only spoke Spanish and we spoke little, but surprisingly we understood most of what he was telling us?! It...More

Xochimilco has become a must stop when I'm in CDMX. It provides a full experience. Relaxes you as you cruise through the canals, vendors would come to you if you'd like something to eat/drink, and the fun gets to another level when the mariachis arrive!...More

Their Margs compare to the Monkey Business in Cabo. My favorite is the Xochimilco Marg. Their speciality. The food is also great. Love the Carne Asada in any dish.

If you have kids, this might not be a necessary trip. We did the group boat and what was slated for 45 minute excursion took almost 2 hours. The water was so crowded. We had some great conversations on the boat with fellow travelers but...More

A must do if you're in Mexico city, about a 45 min ride with no traffic. Lots of food vendors in and around the water. We had an awesome time.

A wild place at the weekend, amazing the trajenora's manage to move at all, just mayhem of boats and revellers. We of course just watched on, found it difficult if not impossible to go in a group, so 500 pesos for us and our trajenora....More

Don't know how TM works here, and haven't used it in years for anything. All I can think of is maybe they send a digital version to your cell than you can show to the operator?

I believe it is open 7 days a week. Sundays are busy with lots of families.
