Day 2 


We’ll head out around 8am to Xochimilco to explore Mexico City’s famed floating gardens. Built originally by the Aztecs to expand food production, these chinampas are still very much in use today. We’ll travel through the gardens by boat and enjoy a local Mexican breakfast while learning the rich history and agricultural techniques of these farms. 

After the tour, spend a couple of hours wandering Mexico City's coolest neighborhoods before we meet back up for a culinary workshop with a local chef. Together, you'll cook a traditional Mexican meal sourced from all local ingredients. From there we’ll head out to for a night of cocktails and salsa dancing.

We’ll start the day with a walking tour as we discover Mexico City's history and arts. Our local guide will fill us in on  the secrets of Diego Rivera's murals at the Palacio de Bellas Artes before taking us through the historical center to learn about the city's fascinating past.

The afternoon is free for you to explore at your leisure. We recommend checking out the bustling San Juan Market to taste some of the freshest finds in the city from flautas, tacos al pastor, and churros to corn tortillas hot off the press.


That evening, enjoy a farewell dinner in one of Mexico City's trendiest neighborhoods, Roma Norte. After dinner, we'll have one final foodie experience at the restaurant of an up and coming Mexican chef.
