The floating gardens is one most beautiful attractions Mexico has to offer. So it’s easy to understand why it’s a UNESCO world heritage site, and it’s not too far from the city.
The gardens have something to offer visitors that is quite unique that won’t be found else where (well maybe Venice). Upon arriving at the gardens you will be able to rent traditional trajinera boats or a mariachi band to keep you entertained as you float down the canals. As you float down the canals you will come across other trajinera boats that will sell food such as elota, which is a topic for another day.
Food & drinks can be brought with you beforehand so you don’t have to purchase from the merchants on the canals, so feel free to bring along a picnic for your ride along the artificial canals. A boat captain is needed, again similar to Venice, who will operate the boat, which allows the part to enjoy the spectacle that is the “floating canals”.
Weekdays can be somewhat peaceful due to people usually working during these days, however weekends can bring along a multitude of people. This is mainly due to people celebrating special events on these canals, so be aware, if you can visit during the weekday, it’s highly advised to do so.
If you want to visit this amazing site, feel free to speak to one of the staff members and they’ll be happy to help you!
