Let’s Party on a Xochimilco Boat Ride! | Mexico City

Take a ride with us on Mexico City’s most colorful and festive boat rides in Xochimilco. This is city’s oldest canal system that dates back to ancient Aztec times. It’s a tourist attraction, but you’ll feel like one the locals listening to music, drinking beer and eating local food.

Jose realized he wanted to be a filmmaker when
he parents gifted him a Lego Studio Set. He wrote stories and shot Oscar-worthy movies starring his Legos. It was his first taste at storytelling and filmmaking, and he was immediately hooked. Then he met Thania, and he realized she shared his same passions for storytelling and adventure. She told her parents that she wanted to travel the world instead of having a quinceañera. She convinced them it was way cheaper than a quince party (which is true), and she flew off to Europe. There she realized travel was the only party in her life that she needed. Now together as husband and wife, Jose and Thania married their passions and created a travel YouTube channel called Subculture Recall.

Subculture Recall is a gonzo-journalistic, face-paced, Latino culture YouTube channel that shows you alternative ways to travel, appreciate art and cultivate culture.
Thania and Jose created the channel in 2015, to document travel, art and their adventures to inspire people’s inner explorers. They invite you to join their adventure, and you will learn what the world has in store for you.
