Mexico City, Xochimilco , Mexico
Description of the space proposed to travellers:
Casa Catrina is a luxurious house down a quaint little Xochimilco street with a well kept garden that gives out onto the canal. It is ideal for families, or for a weekend romantic getaway.
Xochimilco (nahuatl for “place of the flower fields”) is an 800 year old indigenous village in southern Mexico City specialized in flower production upon floating islands (Chinampas) since before the conquest of Mexico by the Spaniards. Thanks to this, Xochimilco was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is also famous for the amount of local festivities, which exceed the amount of days in the Gregorian calendar. The town itself is built out onto the lake, and boat and kayak rides are available to the Chinampas, the Island of the Dolls, or simply to go out and enjoy the diversity of local wildlife.
