Staying in Xochimilco

Neighbourhood Profile
Xochimilco
Xochimilco is one of the most ancient and natural parklands around the city. Used as an important agricultural area since the Pre-Hispanic era, it holds a great variety of flora and fauna that you can witness while canoeing on your own or taking a ride in a classic trajineras (gondola-like boats) decorated with juniper and flowers. Enjoy some Mexican antojitos while sipping a bit of mezcal or tequila and listen to the mariachis and marimbas playing tunes from other colorful chinampas (artificial islands). Aside from the canals, you can find unique Pre-Hispanic art collections at the Archaeological Museum of Xochimilco after talking a walk through its classic streets and visiting the majestic ahuehuete tree that prevails in the heart of this neighborhood at Jardín Juárez.
