Xochimilco is another great weekend attraction in Mexico City. It is internationally famous by the existence of a system of canals and the small colorful boats that float on them among musicians, Mariachis, flowers, and people selling typical mexican food.
The name “Xochimilco” comes from Nahuatl and means “flower field.” This referred to the many flowers and other crops that were grown here on chinampas (as the terrain is called) since the pre-Hispanic period.
