There may be nothing better – or more romantic – than viewing a luminous sunset, savory Mexican cuisine, and mariachi music while gliding along the peaceful waters of a canal. In the past, you could only experience this in the canals near Mexico City, where colorful boats, or trajineras, have transported food, flowers, and people into town for hundreds of years. However, a new tour in Cancun, Xoximilco, brings this experience to the Mayan Riviera and you can book it now through the tour agency Xplora Cancun!
The tour begins when you board one of 40 trajineras, each decorated to represent one of Mexico’s states. Each trajinera holds up to 20 visitors and is piloted through a 4.6-mile network of canals by a guide who will share some of the most exciting legends of Mexico.
At various points in the tour, small canoe-like boats called chalupas will deliver food items such as tamales, chicken in mole sauce, Oaxacan milled chocolate, and more. Chalupas bearing mariachi, marimba, and bolero groups will also arrive to liven up the party.
Throughout the excursion you can take advantage of the onboard open bar, which is fully stocked with beer, tequila, and soda. At the end of this magical journey, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase photos and gifts to remember your journey at Xoximilco’s souvenir shop.
Xoximilco’s canals are located only 20 minutes from Cancun, meaning you can experience the natural splendor of the Mayan Riviera. If you want to experience the best of Mexico’s old traditions while enjoying fantastic food and great music with your friends and family, you should reserve your spot on this tour.
