Return to Xochimilco (place)
|A large area (actually, a whole delegación)
in the South of [Mexico City], bordering with [Tlalpan].|
The center of Xochimilco is a major turist destination, because of the many square miles of canals, lakes and little vegetable-growing islands (called [chinampas]).
The tourist would be well advised to bargain brutally when contracting one of the [punt|punts], especially if said tourist looks pale and appetizingly [gringo].
The easiest way to get to Xochimilco is with the metro ligero, which you catch in [Taxqueña].
