We are a bunch of biologists and farmers that have been working in Xochimilco's wetland for 12 years. Armando and Maya did their posgraduate research at the site, which involved restoration of axolotl populations on natural reserves, while Paco get involved in Humedalia's environmental education program. We all fell in love with wetland cultural and biological charming, from the ancestral chinampas to the beatiful migratory birds, and now we are part of local community because we have our own farm. The team have been working to show the magic of this place to all ages people and nationalities, so they can be embassadors of Xochimilco's conservation efforts all around the world. We are only the face of a big team of local farmers and young researchers that are commited to wetlands conservation.

Staðsetning

Xochimilco wetland is immersed inside Mexico City, you won't believe that you will be just 10 minutes from the stress of civilization. The place is a natural protected area and is the remnant of the Great Mexico Lake, where some aspects of one of the most importants prehispanic cultures still survive.

It was a great experience allowing us to see what is real life in Xomichilco is. One of the most amazing things was the serenity of the place: you can hardly believe you are still in Mexico City! Highly recommnded.

A really special tour. Paco was fantastic and the ride through the canals to get to the farm was unforgettable. I’ll think about this tour for a while

Our experience was unforgettable and truly spectacular. The rowing in the canoe was beyond our expectations. Our tour was directed to a very secluded area with farms, natural scenery, and native wildlife. Our guide Paco was very experienced and caring. The food provided was made fresh and super delicious. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the Chinampas and felt involved in the prehispanic culture. We would truly recommend this experience to everyone.

The only way to experience Xochimilco! One of the most special travel experiences I’ve had in my life! Immensely glad we chose this eco-friendly option instead of the party boats. Paco was kind, courteous, knowledgeable, and so funny. He always made sure he answered our questions and that he was being clear in English (his English is terrific!). Paco let me help paddle, which was an added bonus to the experience. The canals are so peaceful, and our time on the chiampas made me feel connected to the history of the area. Loved learning about the history, legends, current preservation efforts, and of course being able to plant something!

What an amazing day! This tour is pretty special. Paco is an inviting, interesting character who’s very knowledgeable about the history of Mexico City and the unique ecological magic of the chinapas. We got to see a bunch of cool wildlife, watch Humedalia team members in action utilizing sustainable farming practices, transplant our own little plants, and row gently through dozens of beautiful canals. A great way to explore this must-see area.
