Discover the most picturesque corners of Mexico City, on this tour visiting the bohemian neighbourhood of Cotoacán and passing through the Xochimilco canals on board a traditional trajinera.
Coyoacán & Xochimilco Tour
Having picked you up, the tour makes its way to the South of Mexico City, until it arrives at Coyoacán, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, famous as the home of people like Leon Trotsky, Octavio Paz, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
During this tour we'll get to know the thousand year history of Coyoacán, from the settlement of the first communities in the high plains of Mesoamerica to its establishment as the seat of power following the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors.
We'll pass through cobbled streets and picturesque squares, enjoying the impressive baroque mansions of the 16th century, typical of this area. Then we head to the Universidad Autónoma de México, to admire the majestic architecture of the largest university in Latin America.
The tour continues to Xochimilco where we'll discover its spectacular combination of natural and cultural heritage. Here we'll climb on board a trajinera (a small traditional boat adorned with flowers) to pass through the network of canals and artificial islands which have been declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
During the tour, you'll be able to eat in Coyocán (whose market is an ideal place to stop for a bite) or on board the trajinera (a totally different experience).

This tour includes entry to the Frida Khalo museum, located in the famous Casa Azul, in the centre of the Coyoacán. You'll pass through the intimate world of the Latin American artist, visiting the house where she was born, created some of her art, and died.
