In a decision that has surprised many visitors and locals, the Xochimilco piers have implemented new measures that have set aside one of the most emblematic elements of the trajinera experience: the micheladas.
Xochimilco, known for its canals and colorful trajineras, used to be the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing michelada while cruising the calm waters. However, local authorities have decided to ban the sale of this alcoholic beverage on the piers as part of an effort to promote a more familiar and cultural image of the place.
Made with beer, lemon juice, hot sauce and salt on the rim of the glass, micheladas have become a tradition for many visitors looking to relax and enjoy the festive atmosphere of Xochimilco. However, some voices have argued that its sale promotes excessive alcohol consumption and can generate inappropriate or uncomfortable behavior for other visitors.
With the aim of preserving the traditional and cultural essence of Xochimilco, the new measures seek to promote activities more oriented towards family life and appreciation of nature. Now, visitors will be able to enjoy trajinera rides accompanied by live music, marvel at the aquatic landscapes and delight in the typical gastronomy of the region, but without the option of purchasing micheladas.
This decision has generated conflicting opinions among regular visitors to Xochimilco. Some support the measure and believe that it will help to maintain the traditional and cultural atmosphere of the place, while others believe that the micheladas were an inseparable part of the experience and that their absence will make the trajinera rides less attractive.
Despite the absence of micheladas, the piers of Xochimilco remain an attractive place to visit. The trajineras continue to offer picturesque rides along the canals, surrounded by chinampas, floating flowers and traditional music. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of typical Mexican dishes, such as tacos, quesadillas and tamales, as well as non-alcoholic drinks such as aguas frescas and soft drinks.
In addition, the piers have expanded their offer of cultural and recreational activities. There are folk dance presentations, mariachi shows and local handicraft exhibitions. Care for the environment is also promoted and educational tours are offered to learn about the flora and fauna of the area.
Although the change has been significant, the essence of Xochimilco remains alive and captivating. Visitors can immerse themselves in the history and tradition of this magical place, while enjoying a unique and enriching tour. Without a doubt, Xochimilco will continue to be an unmissable destination for those seeking to live
