    Stop At: Mercado de Flores, Xochimilco Entre Canal de Chalco y Canal Nacional, Mexico City 16036 Mexico

    Today, the area is part of the extensive extension of downtown Mexico City, just southeast of the Historic Center. In the past, this area was located at the eastern end of the Aztec island-city Mexico-Tenochtitlan, facing the Lake of Xochimilco. The area was full of artificial islands called chinampas for agriculture and service ports to the thousands of canoes and boats that passed by on their way to the markets of the city, especially the main market of Tlatelolco. The exchange traffic decreased after the Conquest of Mexico, but it continued to be very important. However, during the colonial period, the lake and chinampas areas slowly dried up. For the nineteenth century, the area only had channels, with the main Canal de la Viga, limiting river traffic. By the middle of the 20th century, these would also dry up and be refilled. The traffic was then focused on other main streets built there.4 Throughout the history of the area there have been various markets and markets here.8 The market was established along with others such as the Sonora Market to modernize the markets on the east side of the city in the 50s.4 7 The market of Jamaica was inaugurated on September 23, 1957, and together with the Sonora Market, it was the first to offer parking for cars.8

      A very good tour. We did lots of non tourist Taco spots and our tour guide and driver were excellent and very flexible with our schedule. A good fun night. Thanks to Carlos and Anna. We can thoroughly recommend them as excellent guides.

      A safe, professional and insightful tour combining amazing food, drink, sights and company. This tour was truly outstanding. Despite our tour taking place on the busiest night in the City the Day of the Dead Parade, restricting vehicular access to our hotel, Alejandra and Vicky pulled out all the stops to ensure our tour went ahead on time, as planned. Alexandra is great host and enabled us to taste both food and drink, alongside locals, in places that we would not have visited without her expert guidance. You will not go hungry! Highly recommended.

      Alejandra is an amazing tour guide! As soon as my friends and I met her at our hotel we knew we were in for the total inside scoop on Mexican street food. We had out of this world food like esquites, carne aracherra, and cecina. Absolutely loved sampling Mezcal and artisanal Mexican beer! Tacos al Pastor anyone? Alejandro and her charming driver Vicky will take you to incredible eateries!! I learned so much from this tour and I've traveled extensively throughout Mexico. My friends and I couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the food was on this tour. Mil Gracias Alejandra!
