The so-called "floating gardens of Xochimilco" attract millions of tourists and locals every year. This 150 km long ecological park has also been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1987.

Originally, the siltation made possible in this way was used to create new cultivation areas for agriculture. Nowadays the place is known as a recreational and tourist center. Xochimilco is also known for the colorful excursion boats (trajineras) and the famous flower market.
