A Mexican fiesta you won’t forget! Xoximilco (pronounced soo-chee-meal-koh), offers an evening full of mariachi music, traditional Mexican food, entertainment, and open bar as you travel the water canals. Great for both families or friends looking to celebrate a great night out. This exotic evening excursion brings together folklore and authentic culture to dish up a lively Mexican party. Get ready for dancing, carnival games, a boat ride and more on this 4 hour evening event that includes round-trip transportation to your hotel in the Cancun or Riviera Maya region.

Xoximilco means “garden of flowers” in the indegenous language of Nahuatl. This splendid setting in Cancun replicates the floating gardens and canals of Mexico City’s Xochimilco neighborhood. As you arrive you will be greeted with drinks and appetizers set to festive music. Meet your host and entertainer as you play carnival games, dance and then enjoy more tequila. You can even try exotic foods like grasshoppers!

Then, set sail on a gondola to cruise around the waterways, dance to not only mariachi, but also marimba, jarana, and norteño music. Musicians come aboard the boats as well as play from stages you’ll paddle by. Feast on a dinner with seven distinct flavors and nine dessert samples.

You'll be led by a fun and entertaining host who is sure to keep things lively! This evening of music, food, drinks and fun is great with a group or even on your own as you meet and socialize with others. It does sell out quickly, so book soon!
