  • It's an interesting ride, a sort of "Mexican Venice", but the system that things work on is kind of messy. It's beeeemm away from the city center, so just go with plenty of time. Remember that the price is by boat and not per person. Take money in cash as they charge a "fee" of 10% if it is on the card. It is worth buying the refreshments, snacks, elote, and other food from the boatmen
