Xochimilco is the most fun you can have at a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Formerly the floating gardens of the Aztecs, it is now a floating festival that is at its liveliest on Sundays when Mexican families gather together, cruising down the waterways on brightly decorated flatboats.Here’s a boat for me, Viva Elizabeth!Here is the area where they paint and prep the boats. The boats all have a long table and a bunch of chairs, enough for at least 10 people!The price for the boat includes a poler who steers the boat down the canal.
The first time we went we joined up with a mother and daughter who couldn’t afford a boat for just the two of them. Even though there was only the four of us on a boat meant for a large family, we had a great time. Boats full of Mariachis would play requests and smaller boats buzzed around selling snacks and food!With those horns the Mariachi music is pretty colourful too!More of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vibrant Colours.
