This was alot of fun. We picked alittle boat and we went off. The cost is about $10 per person and we go for about an hour. You can also contract them for longer and for more people.

We didnt bring our own food like alot of people do. Our plan was to eat here, and we did just that.
The guy rowing our boat suggested that if we wanted to eat he knows a good "restaurant".
The restaurant being one that floats. We took his word for it and we werent disappointed.
The people you chose to cook for you attach themselves to the back of your boat and you can even watch them cook for you right there.
The food is not expensive at all and it was very delicious.
Then the boat disappears with the people that cooked for you. A while later before you get off they appear again and accept their payment.
Favorite Dish: I had the carne asada. Michelle had the Chicken Flautas and so did Celso. They made their own salsa and toritllas. Man! It was all so good. I was very satisfied.
Don't bother with tours and go to Xochimilco on your own. Take the metro to Tasquena stop (it's a last stop), get off and look for the "El tren ligero Xochimilco". The cost is only 2 pesos one way and takes you to the very heart of the town. From there, follow the signs "Embarcaderos" and you will get to the boats in just minutes.Related to:
