Xochimilco & Frida Kahlo Museum

Get ready for a panoramic trip from your hotel to the southern area of Mexico City. Reach Xochimilco, which in náhuatl means "Field of Flowers", declared World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Then we will get on board of a traditional and colorful trajinera (typical wooden boat) to navigate along its mystical pluvial channels that exist since pre-Hispanic times, when the Valley of Mexico was distinguished by the existence of lakes and lagoons almost in its entirety. Afterwards we will visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as "The Blue House" because of the distinctive color of its facade, which deepens the knowledge of her work. Its singularity lies in that it was the house where the famous painter was born, and where she lived until her death; as well as in its protecting some of her most famous works such as: "Viva la Vida", "Frida y su Cesárea" and "Portrait of my father Wilhelm Kahlo", among other.
