This is a nice place to visit, this is very popular for Mexican people. You rent a "lancha" and his driver to go on old channels.

A guide took us here and I felt safe, but I would use a little caution. That being said, it was a lot of fun. We went during the day and I wouldn't say the views are much of anything but the boats themselves and the people in them are a riot. We saw boats with mariachis, boats with trinkets for sale, boats with deep fryers serving it up, a boat with an 8 foot xylophone, in other words, no end to cultural interest on this tour. Don't miss it!

Really not worth it, too journey to what you can see there, is expensive and not the best care, use your time on other things.

It is expensive and touristy but well worth it. Be prepared to haggle and walk away from bad deals. Buy what you can to take on the boats to get a better value. One can bring their own music as well.

We took the metro, then light rail to Aztec stadium. We saw that we could keep going down the rail to get Here just a few more stops down. The posters made the town look very nice. When we got off the train it was nothing like what we expected. It reminded me of all the border towns I have visited in northern Mexico. The river is polluted and the price for the tour is about 30 dollars for 30 minutes. Save your money and time!
