This is a great experience, as it is very colourful and different. You probably want to spend a day there, as it is somewhat slow. VERY RECOMMENDED!

If you have time to spare, definitely worthwhile to visit. You essentially sit on one of the boats and float along the river while vendors paddle by with food, beer, flowers, or even a Mariachi band. It's really just for a day to take it...More

Xochimilco is one of the most ancient and natural

agricultural area since the Pre-Hispanic era, it holds
a great variety of flora and fauna that you can
witness while canoeing on your own or taking a ride in
a classic trajineras (gondola-like boats) decorated
with juniper and flowers. Enjoy some Mexican antojitos
while sipping a bit of mezcal or tequila and listen to

Agreed with those that say it's not worth it... because sadly it's not. But if you have to see for yourself you should not pay more than 400 pesos.
