Adventures in Xochimilco

Hello friends,

I want to share with you one of my favorite places around Mexico City: Xochimilco!

As you may know, Mexico City was established on top of a lake LOL. That’s why earthquakes suck. Anyway, only a few lakes remain around the city and Xochimilco is one of them. It’s relatively inexpensive to travel all the canals in Xochimilco in those lovely trajineras (rafts). The entire tour lasts around 5 hours, but we decided to go only half-way (3hrs) up to this place where you get to see the famous “axolotl” aka the Mexican salamander. This beautiful amphibian can regenerate and it’s sooo smushy. You can take a closer look as you watch the video below. Finally, if you ever get to go to Xochimilco, don’t forget to buy some quesadillas, bring your own music, and a good group of friends!
