What you'll do

We will meet at a famous dock in Xochimilco. There will be a decorated boat ready to sail down by a main channel of Xochimilco. First of all we will get confortable on the boat, then we will make a toast with "PULQUE" and "MEZCAL". Briefly I will tell you about the history, customs and leyends of Xochimilco. I will provide you with some snaks and beers also water and juices. With my speaker I will play Mexican music the first half and dancing music the second half of the tour. My family is gonig to help me to provide you a "Sope" as an entry, the main dish is "mole with chicken" for vegans or vegetarians there will be a meal with "vegetables, and mole" there will be a dessert. On the table there will be 10-14 bottles of mezcal of different flavors, you will be able to try all of them just be careful cause mezcal is strong and you could get drunk. I will serve some mexican cocktails. On your count you might hire Mariachi music. You will enjoy the surroundings of the place, the vendors, family parties around, the music and all the shiny boats around us. At the end you can walk around by your own throught the craft´s market. My main function is to provide you all you need to have a great day, yours is your good willing to enjoy the day in Xochimilco.
