    Fun fact: those rivers in Xochimilco are remnants of Tenotichlan. Tenotichlan was the capital of the Aztec empire and was called the "Mexican Venice" by the Spanish.
    The entire city literally floated on water and the Aztec used to gwt around on boats in order to navagte the city or use the bridges. When the Spanish came, they drained the rivers and started building their own structures. Including the churches on top of those pyramids you see in Mexico City.
    That's because Mexico City is where Tenotichlan used to be. Thats why Mexico city is seemingly sinking into the ground its because of ghe original water bed that Tenotichlan was on

    just as xochimilco looks now, that's what Mexico City was like in the time of the Aztecs ! the water channels were created to transport the goods xochimilco is what remains of the great lake of Texcoco was founded the city of Mexico. On 1325 the city of Mexico was founded!

    One of the many attractions in México City... Is one of the last vestiges of the original lake that used to cover the Valley... Aztec were the first ones that started the cover the lake with artificial islands... Enjoy!

    Hi G & H: As fans from your PV days, my wife and I are very happy to see that you are settling into Mexico City and back on your game. I really like how you are picking specific attractions to visit in each video. My wife has wanted to ride the trajineras but we thought it would be a bit lame to go alone as a couple. It is good that you have teamed up with Dan and Niri to enjoy these adventures with (BTW - we bumped into them in Roma Norte when we were there in early March - wish we bumped into you two as well). We had so much fun on our recent second trip to CDMX (also Guanajuato and San Miguel), that we are coming back in December to Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido and CDMX with our university aged kids. Watching this video, we made a decision - the kids will be our wing people for our party on the trajineras in January 2019!! And I really appreciate the comments with the history of Tenochtitlan and tips for the best embarcaderos for better prices. Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Oh guys, I know Xochimilco and the Trajineras look a lot like a boat ride with drinks. And believe me, for many mexicans that is what it is so I dont blame you. But actually there is much more else to explore and see in Xochimilco: there is the Dolores Olmedo museum (she was an art collector, like the Borgias in Mexico... she commisioned most of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's paintings, and her house alone and the animals in it, are something worth seeing).
    There is also El Museo de la Acuarela that if you are into art, you will definitely enjoy. The town of San Pedro Atocpan is in Xochimilco and it is one of the best places to get mole. At the Cuemanco embarcadero (pier) you can find the best taco campechano I ever tried haha. The flower market is also something worth seeing.
    There are also a lot of interesting facts about Xochimilco: how those pieces of land you stepped into were man-built. Built by the Mexicas (by using wood posts and piling up mud on top) in order to have some land where they could grow food on (since the valley where the city now sits was not a valley but a lake). Even today a large percentage of the food we eat in the city and the flowers we buy are still grown there. Yes, the champiñones in your quesadillas and the corn used to make the tortillas, probably were grown there. That is why it is a concern that the water level is lower each year because our government is pumping the water out from there.
    On those canals an endemic specie called Ajolote lives and it is the only reptile in the world that can grow back its limbs and so there is a research center right there where scientists are studying how the Ajolote can help with humans regenerating skin tissue and so forth. And I believe it is open to visit. It is incredible to see how this little being regrows a whole arm.
    Another interesting fact is that the water canals used to be connected all around not so long ago (60 years ago maybe?), for example from Xochimilco to Tlatelolco (which is two miles away from the Centro Histórico) so almost the whole city was like that: water channels, islands made by men and then the pyramids in the Centro Historico... all surrounded by volcanoes. And the only place left where you can picture what that image looked like, is Xochimilco.

    • Vancouver_Dan
      Vancouver_Dan 5 years ago +1

      Thanks so much for the info! I think there was a big painting of what Tenochtitlan looked like in the Anthropological Museum in Chapultepec Park. I will be thinking of your comments, and that mural, when we visit Xochimilco next year

    • Guillermo Ochoa
      Guillermo Ochoa 5 years ago +1

      Larali Lots of great info, thanks. One thing though an Ajolote is an amphibian not a reptile 😂 it’s actually a type of salamander but it also is unique in that it stays in its larval stage its whole life, it doesn’t grow into the land dwelling adult. It lives in the water it’s whole life, pretty cool indeed

      Northview59 if you do come and visit Xochimilco, take a trajinera (boat) at the Embarcadero Cuemanco (pier). That is definitely the best one to picture what the ancient city once was.

  • Vancouver_Dan
    Vancouver_Dan 5 years ago +2

    One more comment - Guanajuato was amazing and is highly recommended! We took the ETN bus from Mexico Norte. Without question, the prettiest, most colourful city in North America! We loved wandering up and down all the alleys and staircases and went on a great walking tour ($200 pesos each for over 2 hours) with a cool 77 year old local (Manuel aka "Mannie the Moose"). We met him where the licenced guides hang out across from the Teatro Juarez. GTO has great energy - lots of university students. If you want hipster fun, visit Ocazzo - a dive bar for pulque, mezcal and grasshoppers (oh and beer), across from the Diego museum. Another great spot (but a lot more $$$) is the rooftop cocktail bar at the beautiful and swanky Hotel Casa del Rector. We enjoyed craft cocktails and a beautiful sunset behind the Cristo Rey statue 30 or so km away. We also liked the Mercado - friendly and chill. We went from GTO to San Miguel, which we did not love - maybe too many ex pats. So while you are in central Mexico, you have to visit GTO. Oh, and thanks to you two - Puebla is now high on our list! Keep it up!

    There was a time right after the spanish conquest that the main mode to transport items from one side to the other was by boat. La Viga, Rio Churubusco and many other avenues today used to be waterwas until the early 1900's. Xochimilco is what remains of those days.

    Xochimilco is much more than a fun place for an outing, did you know the Xochimilcoans (?) had them built with very progressive ideas even before the Aztecs arrived? And there were 100 times larger back then.... Maybe they copied them for the building of CDMX! They've been in continuous use since then using organic and sustainable methods! The most prominent Chefs in CDMX, i.e: Pujol's Enrique Olvera gets his fruit and veg there from young people who are now providing service to many. You can purchase from them too. Very interesting area....

    Arturo Ramos Bueno 5 years ago +4

    Just imagine that the whole city used to be a lake and that around Mexico-Tenochtitlan city used to be a kind of those gardens named chinampas. Byt the way, those boats are not a gondola, they are trajineras instead XD. I suggest you to experience the "La Llorona" show that takes place in October, it is preferomed at the canals but at night :D

    Greetings from riverside ca, you guys kick ass truly keep doing it. Yeah that place is really chill compared to the city I like knowing it’s been there for years and it’s still going. I like the history of the place well everywhere I go in Mexico I’m always thinking how old is it? Here in the USA things aren’t as old cause it’s a new country. I really like the toltecs and Aztecs history I feel like the gods still watch over them. I hope they take down the old airport when the new one is up and they build a lil forest and artificial lake.

  • Jlanzelot
    Jlanzelot 5 years ago

    As a local from Xochimilco. I can say that 500 pesos is the new official price for the Trajineras ride. BUT if you know someone that lives in the area, you can hunt for a better price, if your contact has relatives that own Trajineras of course. Also, Fernando Celada (the place that you did go, in my opinon, is the second best place for Trajineras, after Nativitas.

  • Dr Worst
    Dr Worst 5 years ago +2

    Cuemanco is one of the best entrance, because you can find the flower and plants market, ecological park and the best views of the Xochimilco canals. Xochimilco and Tlatelolco is where used to live the indigenous people in spanish viceroyallity times, by this reason you can't find palaces or ancient mansions, maybe just a few of them. But the interesting thing you can find there is called "chinampas" , it was an aztech invention to cultivate and inhabitat over the lake, Tenochtitlan was created by this technology and instead of streets you could find canals to sailor through the cities. Also Xochimilco has his own museum, There you can find archeological pieces found in this area. Good look!

      I definitely think it's easier to appreciate as a Mexican versus as a tourist. It's hard to explain why but Hillary and I said the same thing. We can appreciate it more for some reason now that we have spent more time in Mexico. If we came to Mexico for a quick trip I don't know that we would have appreciated it as much.

    Aww guys, I feel a bit sorry for you guys haha you got hunted. Boat ride averages 350 pesos and usually you can pay 100 more for some music on the boat. The best embarcadero, in my opinion, is "nativitas". But yeah, its such a known location youll pay extra if you dont know your way around it. Ask for more advice next time haha Im sure we couldve helped you get there faster without being hunted by sellers. Although I guess thats part of the experience as a tourist.

    • jornar10
      jornar10 5 years ago +5

      Mundo Maza I agree, would've been good if they had asked for advice beforehand. Embarcadero Cuemanco is the best ducking station imo. It's removed from the urbanization and the huge flower market is 5mins away walking.

    • Bake With Me
      Bake With Me 5 years ago +5

      I agree, Nativitas is the best. They recently raised the official hourly price from 350 to 500 so you paid the right price. The bikes try to tell you that Nativitas is closed but it isn’t true. Another advantage of Nativitas is the cute artesanal market. I live in Xochimilco...I’m from CT.:)

      We spent a week in Guadalajara in December. It was great. We stayed in Colonia Americana and visited many trendy bars and restaurants on Chapultepec without any stomach problems. We also went on an excellent food tour in Centro (booked through trip advisor) and tried many local dishes in historic restaurants (carne en su jugo; tortas ahogadas!).
      As great as it looks, I would not eat street food, or in "hole in the wall" restaurants, in any Mexican city. The Kennons have been in Mexico long enough to build up immunity - but occasional visitors do not have the ability to fight off bugs. It is prudent to stay away from berries, vegetables that are hard to wash and salsas in bowls that are left on tables. Most restaurants use purified water for ice and drinking water (but we still use bottled water, including to brush our teeth). As long as the restaurant looks clean you can assume that ice is OK. Bottom line, you know your tolerance so trust your instincts. Some people are more sensitive than others. If there is any question, order simple dishes and just drink beer. GDL has great craft beer - try Minerva. Be sure to visit Tequila and Tlaquepaque. Have fun!

We were offered food , the guys wife cooked it where we couldn't see her hands. A boat with Mariachi s pulled up and hooked up. Ten songs- 1000 pesos. Boats came by offering all kinds of crafts. we were told that there we 9 canals. Great time food was good. I suggest that you go with a guide to get the full experience and history.

    When I was there, I was able to get a private ride for two hours for 400 pesos! I guess it depends where you go and how much you bargain

    dia de los muertos in xochimilco is really special, pero its cool to go chill and kill some pulque de avena on a hot day...believe it or not its just about the only original part left of tenochtitlan by now im sure your a lil familiar with the native culture 👍

    Xochimilco is a bit dangerous, specially downtown, the part where You said there are 5 ways for the gondola at the beginning of the video.however, now there are police but just 6 years ago it was a land with no law. Also You hve to be careful with bike taxis not just in xoch but everywhere, bike taxis are usually with drug dealers so if You want drugs or being shoot You can take one of these .

    1,000 pesos is 54.78 dollars right now. I think that’s a great deal for 2 hours!

    It was quite because you forgot a speaker to play music. 😁 Joke aside, Xochimilco can be as quiet or as loud as you wish. Best.
