The boats are colorful and the environment is lively with a mariachi band climbing aboard. However, it quickly grew tiring to be bombarded by sellers hawking their wares. The floating gardens were plant shops that I could not see from my opposite-facing, quite unconfortable chair....More
A unique experience not far outside of the city. Try to go at an off time so you're not overwhelmed with the number of other boats. And definitely have street food beforehand in the area right next to the boats.
This is totally a place to hang out and is a tourist trap of sorts but geared to locals too... vibrant, fun, relaxed - think theme park I suppose; with a pulse. You don’t have to buy or shop and can bring along a picnic...More
Not sure if that’s the exact translation for Tourist Trap but that’s what this was. $4000 Pesos and you still have to buy food and drink and pay for mariachi bands. Plus, there are no gardens. Just green houses and most were empty. Don’t get...More

Yes, next streets to the shipping docks you may find parking lots. You may also park at some nearby streets, however it is safer to leave the vehicle at the available parking lots not farther than 800 meters or so, from the... More

I agree join a group tour and you will meet new people. The town is fascinating there are markets selling food, clothes and gifts. It’s certainly worth a visit even if you don’t go on the boat tour. Enjoy!
