It is a popular place to visit, especially on weekends, because many of the original layouts, plazas and narrow streets have been preserved and date from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. « less

Coyacan is an entirely pleasant colonial town steeped in history and culture. Please be sure to visit the Frida and Trotsky museums. Throw in Diego Rivera and you get a good dose of Mexican history and culture in the 20th century. The town itself is perfectly pleasant and made for strolling the many beautiful avenues filled with restaurants and shops.

I loved the quiet, peaceful, tree-lined streets of Coyoacan. There are great bars and restaurants along the main plaza and more than other parts of the city, it seems very family-friendly.

The place is historic, well preserved, safe and has every kind of interesting points, from the house where Cortes the conqueror lived for the weekends, a very, very old Franciscan church, and other well known attractions like the Frida Kahlo museum. Definetively a must!

Coyoacan is great place to... More
