About to start the tour in our trajinera (Photo (C) Xoximilco)
The tourist attraction of Xoximilco, after years of success in Mexico City, it has also been implemented in the area of Cancun. It was there that we were lucky to enjoy it a couple of weeks ago. To tell you what the subject is about, you should familiarize yourself with a couple of terms:
If you search for this word on Wikipedia you will find the following entry: “The trajinera It is a type of boat for the transport of 10 to 25 people and use in calm and shallow water, with a prop not exceeding 30 cm and a 3m beam, which moves through poles supported at the bottom of the mass of water in which it moves ”.
Of that nothing. The word that gives name to this boat comes from “trajín”, because the one that is going to be assembled from when you board it until you get off, it will be epic. He tequila factor It helps a little. But we go in parts.
I think almost everyone knows what tequila is. With or without a worm, lizard or scorpion, the effect, enhanced by the swinging of the trajinera, you will feel from the first minute. Long live the pinch güey that began to distill it in Jalisco!

Ranches and open bar
Here are two options: either you like this popular Mexican folk genre, or I explain what the open bar is. If you need to go for the second option, imagine that you know the term well.
After this brief introduction, I enter fully to tell you our Xoximilco experience.
We met the good one of Leo, our host, just arriving at the place. It was 8.30 in the afternoon and at the entrance something similar to a reception had been organized where visitors, mostly Mexicans, tasted some appetizers typical of the country's cuisine.
After wandering around the area a bit and taking our first group photo in a small boat, Leo accompanied us to the dock where the trajineras.
Long live Mexico, you bastards! ”(Photo (C) David Escribano)
