Take in some of the quieter parts of the Xochimilco canals while kayaking, and do some bird-watching while you’re at it within this ecotourism park. You’ll spot ducks, egrets and herons, among many other migratory and endemic species. You can also visit the many nurseries along the shores.

To get here, go to metro General Anaya and exit the station on the east side of Calzada de Tlalpan, then walk 50m north to catch a ‘Tláhuac Paradero’ pesero. Get off at the Embarcadero Cuemanco entrance and walk about 1km to Michmani, just beyond the embarcadero.
