Great time here. Having a boat ride with many other boats around, people singing, drinking on the boats, mariachi playing, nature all around. Also there are floating merchants so you can buy food and drink while flowing :)

Mexico is beautiful, but unfortunately it can be very corrupt. Everyone is always haggling for money, dishonest, and not very helpful. I was born in Mexico and raised half my life there. I was disappointed to see the corruption that exists within this great city....More
