I highly recommend this if you are in Mexico City! Such a fun day out. You rent a whole boat and go down a river. There are floating vendors with street food and alcohol. There are also mariachi bands playing music. Lots of the locals come out to sing, dance, and enjoy an afternoon with their friends and family. Such a lovely way to experience the Mexican culture. I highly recommend downloading the Google Translate App first, because you will need to haggle and it's hard if you don't speak the language. Make sure not to overpay, they will try to charge you more!

Transportation
Xochimilco
Take an Uber! Our ride from Mexico City to Xochimilco was only $6 (~45 minutes)
Culture and experiences
Coyoacán
I highly recommend combining Xochilmico and Coyoacan together as a day trip from CDMX
Points of interest
Xochimilco
You can ask for the boat to stop at the Island of Dolls on Anthony Bourdain. You can also see it on the boat ride.
Shopping
Xochimilco
Don't buy souvenirs from the floating vendors. You can find them much cheaper at the market nearby.
Special activities
Xochimilco
The maximum price for a boat is 700MXN/hour. They will try to charge you double or triple that price. Make sure you bargain!
