I'm a mexican woman who was thought to dance right after learning how to walk with my parents style.
I have organized party boats for my friends many times and I love to share the mexican culture and show how we live our daily life and prove we are a vibrant colorful and joyful country .

Cynthia is sweet and tries to make it special. Really fun day but not the cheapest. Make sure you bring money for food, beer or extra. ;)

Cynthia was an amazing host. We came as a large group of 8 and she did a great job of balancing us with the additional guests on the boat. I told her in advance two members of our party were pregnant and she was incredibly thoughtful about adjusting to ensure they were included and able to have a good time. Cynthia has such a welcoming and bright personality it truly makes for a fun experience. I would recommend her as a host to anyone looking to enjoy Xochimilco and have a good time.

We had a wonderful time with Cynthia! The trajineras are incredible, so fun and unique. The music, the delicious mezcal and snacks, and the dancing only added to the experience. Would definitely recommend if you want a seamless and easy trip.

Cynthia is awesome! We had a great time sipping mezcal drinks and dancing on the canals. Be sure to bring some extra pesos for food, mariachi, and micheladas!

Cynthia was amazing and told us stories of the doll island. She made us feel very welcome and she gave us an option to extend the tour, which we did. We danced, drank and had lots of snacks to hold us over until we got off of the boat. We exchanged information and will hopefully be working together in the future.
