Xoximilco Tours

2 reviews
Xoxomilco, whose name means “garden of flowers” in the ancient Aztec language, is Cancun’s homage to the floating gardens and canals of Mexico City’s famous Xochimilco neighborhood. Here, visitors can experience a number of Central American traditions, including floating boats strung with flowers, live music, and regional food. 

The Basics
Most Xoximilco tours leave from central Cancun and include pickup and drop-off from local hotels. At the park, you can float down the river in a Mexican gondola, or trajinera, enjoy  a meal of traditional Mexican food, sip tequila and beer, and listen to traditional mariachi and marimba music. 

Xoximilco Cancun is part of a network of related parks and experiences, including Xcaret, Xel-Hal, Xplor Fuego, Xplor, Xenotes Oasis Maya, Xoximilco Cancun, Xichen, and Xenses. You can purchase packages granting admission to multiple parks.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Xoximilco Cancun is a must-see attraction for culture and nightlife lovers. 
  • The park is located in the jungle, so be sure to plan for mosquitos; wear long pants and closed-toed shoes, and bring plenty of biodegradable insect repellent. 
  • Valet parking is available onsite. 
  • Wheelchair service is available; all boats are wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
Xoximilco is located about five minutes by road from Cancun International Airport. While most tours provide round-trip transportation from your hotel, you can also take a taxi or drive yourself. 

When to Get There
The park is busiest from December through April, when the weather tends to be sunny and warm; there are fewer crowds during hurricane season (May through October). Nights at Xoximilco are particularly magical. 

Mexico City’s Xochimilco Neighborhood
The floating gardens of Xochimilco are a Mexico City must-see; the quintessential way to explore is a traditional trajinera boat ride around the canals and islands. Combine it with a Mexico City sightseeing tour, which will include the National University of Mexico, the ancient ruins of Teotihuacan, and the the neighborhood of Coyoacán, home to the Diego Rivera Anahuacalli Museum and the Frida Kahlo Museum.
