Xochimilco is a UNCESCO World Heritage Site and a special part of Mexico City’s pre-Hispanic past. It’s a canal system that was used throughout the valley which includes 170 kilometres of canals! Today you can visit and ride on a gondola-like boat called a trajinera which will take you on a ride around. There are also special floating gardens and lots of other boats selling food, souvenirs, and shuttling around mariachi bands who will play for you. We took the public collectivo boat for only twenty pesos whereas a trajinera costs minimum 350 pesos. We thought this was a good hack! If you’re planning to visit Xochimilco, make sure to watch this video for a tip about which launch point to go to as well! This was a fun place to spend the morning and I loved seeing all the brightly coloured boats.
I’m travelling around the world as a nomad. I left my apartment, bought a one way ticket, and don’t have a plan! COME ALONG FOR THE ADVENTURE!
