The sanctuary

What would it be to visit Xochimilco without knowing the Axolotl? So, before we end our journey, we will stop by an Axolotl sanctuary. Axolotls are Xochimilco’s endemic salamanders, sadly endangered, though extensively used in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate limbs, gills and brains.

01:00 PM

While we sail back to the pier we will enjoy the tamale that we previously prepared, accompanied by hand tortillas and a delicious macha sauce.
