We are a bunch of biologists and farmers that have been working in Xochimilco's wetland for 12 years. Armando and Maya did their posgraduate research at the site, which involved restoration of axolotl populations on natural reserves, while Paco get involved in Humedalia's environmental education program. We all fell in love with wetland cultural and biological charming, from the ancestral chinampas to the beatiful migratory birds, and now we are part of local community because we have our own farm. The team have been working to show the magic of this place to all ages people and nationalities, so they can be embassadors of Xochimilco's conservation efforts all around the world. We are only the face of a big team of local farmers and young researchers that are commited to wetlands conservation.

Missä tulette olemaan

Xochimilco wetland is immersed inside Mexico City, you won't believe that you will be just 10 minutes from the stress of civilization. The place is a natural protected area and is the remnant of the Great Mexico Lake, where some aspects of one of the most importants prehispanic cultures still survive.

I love gardens and this was the most magical experience I’ve ever had knowing the history and the story behind it made all the difference. I was amazed at the black soil and the beautiful food that tasted better than anything I’ve ever tasted that soil is pure magic and I was so blessed to be on this experience, highly recommended!

This is a wonderful way to explore the area of Xochimilco. You start with a canoe ride which takes you to a chinampa where you continue the tour. Both parts of this experience are lovely and informative.

Still having a hard time understanding how this peaceful natural area is part of a busy Mexico City. Great tour, learned a lot from Paco about how the Chinampa is utilized to grow fruits and vegetables and maintained to stay fertile. Thank you Humedalia team for all that you do in the name of nature’s preservation!!

It was a great experience allowing us to see what is real life in Xomichilco is. One of the most amazing things was the serenity of the place: you can hardly believe you are still in Mexico City! Highly recommnded.

This was such a cool experience! It's a different way to visit Xochimilco, but a much better way to see the chinampas (floating gardens) and to learn a little bit about the history. This can be an interactive visit, but you can also relax and not do any work at all if you don't want to! :) Paco is so friendly and obviously passionate about his work. The lunch was delicious and it was really cool to know that everything had been grown right next to where we were eating. I highly recommend this tour to see a new part of Mexico City and to learn more about an incredible part of history.

A really special tour. Paco was fantastic and the ride through the canals to get to the farm was unforgettable. I’ll think about this tour for a while
