We are a bunch of biologists and farmers that have been working in Xochimilco's wetland for 12 years. Armando and Maya did their posgraduate research at the site, which involved restoration of axolotl populations on natural reserves, while Paco get involved in Humedalia's environmental education program. We all fell in love with wetland cultural and biological charming, from the ancestral chinampas to the beatiful migratory birds, and now we are part of local community because we have our own farm. The team have been working to show the magic of this place to all ages people and nationalities, so they can be embassadors of Xochimilco's conservation efforts all around the world. We are only the face of a big team of local farmers and young researchers that are commited to wetlands conservation.

Gdje ćete biti

Xochimilco wetland is immersed inside Mexico City, you won't believe that you will be just 10 minutes from the stress of civilization. The place is a natural protected area and is the remnant of the Great Mexico Lake, where some aspects of one of the most importants prehispanic cultures still survive.

This experience was absolutely brilliant, so calm and peaceful in the chinampas, so many birds and wildlife you can’t believe your in Mexico City and a break from the busy city. The guide was thoughtful, extremely knowledgeable and very funny. The boat road, the time in the chinampas the beautiful prepared food was all really well thought out. It was great to visit this brilliant project. This trip was one of the best things I’ve done in Mexico.

Had a great time learning about the history of chinampas and their relation to the people of Mexico City, the plants and animals of the Xolchimilco area, and the natural way to grow plants for consumption.

Excellent way to see Xochimilco off the beaten path! Much better than the more touristy version—this is a quiet, rustic experience with a great host/ guide who really cares about the ecology.

Humedalia offers a valuable and unique experience. The trip through the canals is lovely with many sightings of egrets. The hosts provide a tour through their garden and explain their system of farming, which is an attempt to promote sustainable gardening.

Paco was a wonderful host, thoughtful and knowledgeable, and taught us so much about the history and natural wonders of the chinampas. The canoe ride was blissful, the farm lovely, and some of our fellow travelers wished out loud that they could string up a hammock and stay all day.
