I went to the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco with a friend. We had a nice time. But would be so much more fun if it was a group of people. The boats are so colorful and cool. Was a nice day.

It is very difficult to find the Trajinera locations if you're in an Uber as there are many locations to start in the area of Xochimilco. We first started at Embarcadero Cuemanco which had many family owned places to get food and snacks, but the...More

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

The walk through the small city to the boat launch was filled with delicious, cheap, authentic food and drink. Pay attention to signs and prices. A coconut drink was listed for 10 pesos but cost 30 when we got our drinks. Exchange was 20 pesos...More

If the hotel is in Mexico City, we walked to take a public bus, then train and then another train and it cost approximately $3 USD total. Uber is probably around $50 USD.

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!
