Xochimilco ('so-chee-MIL-co') is an agricultural area in the south of Mexico City where many of the city's flowers are grown. On this tour, you'll drift in a flat-bottomed boat through the lovely floating gardens of Xochimilco and take in the once-enormous agrarian canal system that fed the Aztec capital.
In Aztec times, with prime farmland being scarce, the Indians developed a system of floating reed mats loaded with soil and used them as gardens. It is now your chance to experience this wonder that took place so long ago!
You'll also have the opportunity to visit the National University.
