Chapultepec Park is an enormous green area in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the city and also where the Chapultepec Castle is located. This castle has been used for numerous functions over the last three hundred years. In the early 20th century it was home to Emperor Maximilian of Habsburg until he was executed. For a while it was an army barrack and later the President's official residence. Today the castle is the Mexican History Museum and also houses an art museum as well.
Spend the morning as the locals do! Here you will see all kinds of families having a water picnic! Xochimilco is one of the vestiges of the old Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan; these gardens lie out in the south of the city. On arrival at the pier the people will board their gaily-painted “trajinera” or boat to be gently poled along some of the many waterways which make up this area. They will be able to enjoy the colours and beauty of this area and as they sail along for about an hour, a cocktail will be offered and Marimbas will pay traditional Mexican songs. We can also decorate your boat with the company logo made out of paper maché or even with fresh flowers!
