Xochimilco

Guadalupe, N.L., Mexico

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!
