What you'll do

Enjoy a perfect day visiting one of the best kept secrets of Xochimilco, an oasis south of Mexico City. Discover with us a magical town immersed with history, culture and traditions: San Gregorio Atlapulco. The journey begins at the market, where you’ll meet the producers and their stories while you get immersed in the colors, sounds, smells and flavors of the real Mexico. Tlacoyos, tamales and atole are only the beginning of a gastronomic experience through the flavors of the pre-hispanic and colonial Mexico. While walking through the market, together we’ll choose the fresh products that we’ll use for our lunch later on (probably the best Mexican food you’ll ever have). We’ll explore the “chinampas”, those beautiful floating gardens recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. On a traditional canoe, the “chinamperos” we’ll glide us deep into their canals. Get ready to travel back in time to the ancient Mexico. There’s no better ending for this amazing day than to prepare our meal all together and to share the table as a family while saying “salud” with mezcal and beer. This is not a tour, this is a unique experience that you can only access with us. Will you join us?

We're a group of travelers proud of our Mexican roots. We understand the need for new experience models that improve the equality of community members. And that is why the two of us - Sergio and José Manuel - joined: to create truly unique experiences that will not only change your perspective about our country, but will also improve community members living conditions. The group of locals that we'll meet during our experience are fundamental part of our team. They are the ones who truly show us the real Mexico, their culture and traditions.

Where you'll be

We’ll start at the market, where flavors, sounds, colors, and smells will take you to a real Mexico. After tasting unforgettably delicious food, we’ll go to the chinampas - a UNESCO World Heritage site. Our dear friends, the chinamperos, will be ready to take you back in time - gilding along beautiful canals on a traditional canoe. Later, we’ll prepare, all together, a delicious Mexican lunch with the ingredients we picked at the market.
