Next, admire the mosaic murals of Juan O'Gorman and enjoy a cruise through the floating gardens of Lake Xochimilco aboard a traditional trajinera boat! Continue to the colonial center of Coyoacan to admire its 16th-century architecture before visiting the Frida Khalo Museum, where the world's most famous Latin American artist once lived!

    **Optional Plaza Garibaldi at Night Show: Head to Plaza Garibaldi this evening to experience its famous mariachi bands and vibrant atmosphere! Enjoy an authentic Mexican fiesta with live music and dancing as you soak up the ambience of one of Mexico City's most emblematic nightlife spots! One drink included.
