Tláhuac

Tláhuac is partly covered by the canal and chinampa system for which Xochimilco is more famous. Some of the places in Tláhuac are also among the oldest and least known in the city. In fact, just arriving to Metro Tláhuac, one of the newest and biggest Metro stations in the system, can feel like you've stepped off at an entirely different city. There's a lot to explore.

Seven pueblos originarios within the alcaldia include the municipal seat of government at San Pedro. An increasing number of museums and archaeological collections are drawing people from all over the world (you'll find them below). But the most famous of them all may now be Mixquic with its massively attended Day of the Dead celebrations.

Don't miss the Lake of the Aztec Kings with its own, more environmentally conscious canal boat rides, this time on the lake.
