Xochimilco’s Neon Lights

We arrived at the watery edge of the Mexico City UNESCO site of Xochilmilco after a long journey on the city metro line terminus: El Tren Liger.   Non-motorized colorful boats and barges slowly carry passengers down canals and around artificially created islands or chinampas.  This World Heritage site is all that remains of Pre-Hispanic Mexico City.  Here, there are nine docks or “embarcadero’s” where boats can be hired for a fixed rate.  This port pictured below is known as the “less touristy” Embarcadero Nuevo Nativitas.
