It has a lot of artists selling their paintings and there is an interesting amount of places to eat and drink (not formal, street typical food) It's... More

If you want to know a tipical place were families and couples go to relax and spend some hours you can visit Coyoacan Downtown. It has several places to eat and drink, you can eat the typical "esquites" that is a corn snack, or you can enjoy some ice creams or eat in a restaurant or drink in a bar.... More

It used to be very nice when all the hippies and the little vendors wee all over the plaza. Sure.. it is cleaner now but I think it lacks flavor.

Is an oasis of "little village" inside a huge city. Great restaurants, culture, and everything at walking distance. You can have a great afternoon.

There is lots to see in Coyoacan, which is in southern Mexico City. Frida Kahlo's house, Diego Rivera's studio, Trotsky's house, and the cool old houses along the Avenue Fancisco Sosa. It's really a beautiful part of the city!

Many small shops and artisanal boutiques are all around the nighboorhood, but is beautiful just to walk around the colonial streets with the huge houses painted in vivid colors.

Fabulous area to visit. The Frida Kahlo Museum is a must see. .so is the house of Hernan cortes. Here you see the colonial legacy. Beautiful places to stroll around, visit the market, have street food and just soak in the cuture.
