Itinerary

Far away from the noise and traffic of the city, our experience begins in the “Embarcadero of Cuemanco” where I will be to receive you and you will travel in a part of the Xochimilco Lake in a trajinera (local boats) designed by the plastic artist Luciano Matus, where you can contemplate how was Mexico City in the prehispanic time.

During this journey of 25 minutes in the trajinera, I will explain to you the history of Xochimilco and its biological and cultural importance. We will also talk about what the chinampas are, how they are made and what's their importance to agriculture.

Once we arrive to the Chinampa of the Sun, we will continue the trip so that you can watch the agrecological system in which we work.

Stop At:

• Floating Gardens of Xochimilco, Southern neighborhood of Xochimilco, Mexico City Mexico

This trip is amazing, the Yolcan host gives to us an excellent explanation of the history of Mexico City, and it was great to put our feet on an actual chinampa and understand the agroecological techniques.
