Directions to Xochimilco

This is one of the places that local people love, and Mexican families take a boat for a celebration, a birthday, or just a Saturday afternoon together. It's an UNESCO world heritage site, because of both the history and the nature here.The boats are called trajineras and are painted in bright colours. There's a fiesta atmosphere as people enjoy a day on the river. Pick out the prettiest boat, or see if you can spot one with the coolest name to take a ride down the canal. There are some tourists but this is more of a local experience, sometimes there are even festivals on the water. Different boats offer trips of 45 minutes to three hours, for various prices.

Xochimilco isn't straight-forward to get to (which is perhaps why you won't find as many tourists as you might expect) but it is totally worth the journey. It gets pretty busy on weekends so you might have to wait a little for a boat to become free. This place is fun, unusual, and the boat ride shows you beautiful scenery, including parts of the country you'd otherwise miss out on.
