Mexican Welcome - Fiesta Mexicana at Xochimilco channels and Plaza Garibaldi
• What we'll do Let´s explore 2 very fun places for a Fiesta Mexicana / Mexican Party !! First we will visit the channels of Xochimilco in the South of Mexico City, which are left from what was an extensive lake and canal system that connected most of the settlements of the Valley of Mexico. These canals, along with hand made islands called chinampas, attract tourists and city residents to ride on colorful gondola-like boats called “trajineras” around the 170 km (110 mi) of canals. This canal and chinampa system, as an evidence of the area’s pre-Hispanic past, has made Xochimilco a World Heritage Site. We will take a boat ride on one of the “trajineras” for 2 hours, enjoying the beautiful views, listen to live Mariachi, Norteña or Jarocho music and make new local and international friends. During the boat trip you can order optionally your favorite drinks and snacks (not included). After exploring the Xochimilco channels, we will take you to Plaza Garibaldi, where we will visit different bars, cantinas and a pulquería, optionally trying some traditional drinks or food and listen to live Mariachi music. The price is 550 Mexican pesos paying before the 10th of July, Includes private transport to the Xochimilco channels, mexican Xochimilca food and Plaza Garibaldi, a 2 hour boat trip on a traditional “trajineras” and explanations in English and Spanish. Does not include optional drinks, snacks or food. Let´s explore 2 very fun places for a Fiesta Mexicana / Mexican Party and make new friends!!

Lo que hacemos

This Meetup is for Internationals and Mexicans from other States, who are living temporally or permanently in Mexico City.

We will organize events, where people new to Mexico City can make new friends, can receive tips on important newcomer issues (Security, Housing, Transport, Spanish Lessons, Travel etc.) and learn more about this amazing country and city; it´s culture, it´s music, it´s people, it´s food and it´s drinks :-).

The idea is not just to meet up; the organizers will also prepare presentations / information on some of the important newcomer issues mentioned above, so besides making new friends and have a great night out, we can have interactive discussions about those topics.

In short: the main objective of Meeting Up is to help you in a way that you feel at home soon in Mexico City :-).

People who know Mexico City already are also very welcome, as long as they want to share their experiences. If you want to offer services or products please always check with the organizer first, to prevent spam towards the group or individuals.

It´s time for a great Mexican Welcome :-).
(let´s try to make it a less chaotic and more fun experience together!)

The organizers are Peter Winckers, a Dutchman living since 2009 in Mexico City and his Mexican wife Lidia Herrera. We look forward meeting you soon!
