Dolores Olmedo Museum and boat ride in Xochimilco floating gardens
Xochimilco floating gardens are UNESCO world heritage of humanity together with the historic center Mexico city. The place remains as the last example of the so called Venice of America, a city built in the middle of a lake using artificial islands that today, we can see in this natural site of the city.
Another important reason is that here is the home of a unique kind of salamander that is endemic of this place. Have you heard about the axolotl or ajolote? Wait and let you surprise by this amazing amphibious.

Dolores Olmedo Museum at Mexico City's southern extreme, is housed in a rambling stone structure, originally dating from the Sixteenth Century, formerly known as the Hacienda La Noria.
By donating her art collection to the people of Mexico, Dolores Olmedo (1908-2002) created a cohesive whole, where treasures of the fine arts were incorporated into colonial construction, surrounded by lush gardens, with Mexican plant species, and inhabited by gorgeous animals like the magical peacocks and the enigmatic hairless Xoloitzcuintli dogs, a Pre Columbian breed.
This museum offers the largest collection of art pieces of Frida and Diego as well as the most impressive Day of the Death" monumental altar that reflects one of the deepest mexican traditions.(seasonal)
