120 Pesos for two people, for a short ride and really nothing to see. Driver of the boat said nothing the whole trip. Better off walking and enjoying the fresh air.

the boats were clean, the guide was well informed about the surroundings, but I found the tickets pretty expensive for the short ride and the waiting for get in also a pain with the sun in our face.

It is a nice ride. Now, sometimes the waiting time to be able to get in one of the boats to go thru the official canal tour is very long, but you can always walk the canal, no issues. If you have little kids, don't forget your stroller.

This trip is pretty nice since you can get into downtown from Fundidora very easily. The guide in the boat goes all the way explaining (in Spanish) too. You can also walk all the way, there are some restaurants in the path. If you have time to spend and is visiting Fundidora, take it.

What can I say? Nasty crowd, not much selection of restaurants (and the ones that exist are local tourist traps), a pitiful boat cruise, and just an overall aire of depression that lingers as you walk down the paseo. Nonetheless, the positive thing is that you can walk! A rare feature of life in Monterrey.

With a walking river, this tour is a must for a visitor that has never been in this town. During the day and with hot weather, the water and the fountains are a very refreshing option. If you keep walking, eat elotes or any street food. It's very local, yummy and not for weak metabolisms!

An amazing escape in the middle of Monterrey. You can take a boat ride along the roughly 2km man -made river or you can walk along the edge (either side). The boat ride includes informative commentary (in Spanish). The place is spotless and there are lots of fountains, murals, and sculptures. Definitely worth a visit even if you aren't into... More

This is one of the best parks in Monterrey. Excellent to go with kids and take a picnic. The Parque de los loros is great and the boat ride.

December in Monterrey is cool but this year had an expectacular show at paseo santa lucia Luminaria. You can walk, or take a little tour in a boat and hear part of the history of the city. There was a Santa Clause vilage also. There are good restaurants too
