Xochimilco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located about 17 miles (28 km) south of the capital’s historical center.
The brightly colored boats that transport passengers through the canals of Xochimilco are called trajineras. They are flat-bottomed boats similar to gondolas. You can hire one to take you for a ride.
This is most fun to do in a group: the boats seat about a dozen people.
If you come with just a few people you may be able to join up with another group, or you can hire a boat just for your party. The cost is about 350 pesos per hour for the boat.
