Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup in Cancun, drive to the nearby attraction of Xoximilco a tribute to the beauty and grandeur of the original canals and floating gardens of Xochimilco in central Mexico.

Hop aboard a picturesque trajinera and float past other colorful flat-bottomed barges, traversing a network of canals with your guide by night. Decorated with motifs from the 32 states of Mexico, these famous boats are replicas of those once used for transporting flowers, fruit and vegetables grown in the Aztec citys floating gardens.

Enjoy the festive ambiance on board as you celebrate a Mexican-style fiesta with traditional live music and more than 20 gastronomic delights. Your evening cruise includes delicious Mexican cuisine, such as tamales, chicken with mole sauce, and corn flan for dessert plus tequila, beer, soda and fruit drinks. (See sample menu in Itinerary below.)

Observe canoe-like boats called chalupas approach the barge with food. These charming vessels also bring along musicians to liven up the mood as various ensembles play traditional tunes. Youll be enchanted by the mariachi, bolero trio, jarocho quartet and marimba bands that entertain your small group.

Your guide will host your celebration and narrate the legends of Mexico as you coast along, then return you to Cancun with drop-off at your selected hotel.
