How to get there from Casa de Chiles?

​Take the metro from Chapultepec direction Pantitlán. Change at the station Pino Suárez, direction Tasqueña. At Tasqueña get to the Train Ligero and take travel to the last station. Plan your trip well, it is a pretty long travel, it may take between 1.5 and 2 hours one way.

​Price should be 700 MXN for the entire boat rental for 2 h; you can always to bargain, but above this price, is starts to be a rip off.
