The Floating Gardens of Xochimilco is one of Mexico's best kept secrets.

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the canal used to be inhabited by the Aztecs, where they engineered floating gardens to cultivate crops.

Today, travelers can enjoy a day filled will music and authentic Mexican cuisine, all while floating on one of the brightly painted trajineras.

Welcome to The Floating Gardens of Xochimilco.

This stunning ancient canal is one of Mexico's natural wonders waiting to be explored.

And although travelers can enjoy the beautiful scenery and biodiversity...

...Xochimilco is definitely a unique experience for foodies in particular!

While cruising along the canal, one can enjoy mouthwatering Mexican treats made from food sellers on chalupas (small boats).

From delicious elotes (grilled Mexican street corn)...

YUMM!!! a cold tamarind margarita...

...the food options are endless!

Even for the surrounding animals.

And whether you're looking to soak up some sun...

...or spend the day drinking...

Two tequilas, por favor!

...everyone is sure to have a blast in this one-of-a-kind experience.

Including our four-legged friends!

Did we mention there are mariachis serenading you all day long!?

Because even at night the fiesta continues.

We're sure this place won't stay a secret much longer.

Catch you later, I’m Xochimilco-bound!
