Beautiful Coyoacan! Definitely the place where you should consider buying a house and settle down if you decide to spend the rest of your life in Mexico City!

I visited Coyaocan 11 years ago on a weekday and it was relatively empty of people, very nice. Today it was Sunday and a sunny day and by 1 pm the whole area was pretty crowded. Still worth visiting just be prepared for more people and longer time for finding a place to park. Viisited a small artisan market and... More

Love viisit Coyoacan; we were lost driving around but it was nice. The street are just amazing; the houses retain their old fronts. The traditional "nieves" (ice creams) different all tastes, traditional candies as "pepitorias", "alegrias" & "merengues". It was Sunday so had a fair and lots of food stalls

Visited Coyoacan on a Friday. Make sure to stop by the market. You're sure to find lots of cool things much cheaper than any touristy beach town. After that we got some dressed up popsicles - a must in Mexico City! Then we chilled by the fountain and watched people play. After the checked out the church and the gazebo.... More

We came here on a Monday morning, so maybe that was our first mistake, I'm not sure if there's more going on at night/weekends or where that stuff would be. It's a nice neighborhood, but if you go there as a tourist there's not much unless you go to the museum (we didn't, because we were with people who kinda... More

I used to love Coyoacan - it's still got the things that make it special to me, like Francisco Sosa, El Jarrocho, and the famous tostadas in the market, but it's just not as bohemian as it used to be. Definitely a letdown on my last visit to Mexico City.

We had read reviews about Coyoacan and devided to visit this neighborhood after the frida kalho museum. After a week in Mexico city, finding this quiet (in some areas) and lively (in others) felt really good. The busy area near the main church feels like a village atmosphere while streets near the frida kahlo museum were very quiet. We had... More

I found the main square and surrounding cobbled stone streets to be way too touristy. However, I loved walking around the quieter streets. The houses were colorful and undisturbed and I could really picture it as a village. The line for the Frida Kahlo museum was just too long, so we didn't wait. If you really want to see the... More

A tranquil place with great atmosphere. Superb places to eat, relax and reflect. The church is incredible - a very thought provoking experience. Loads of history - do buy some churros from the corner shop. They're great.

Coyoacan is about a 30-40 subway ride from downtown. I didn't think it was all that great or unique and was a bit too hyped up. Frida Khalo's museum was disappointing and a rip off. I'd go if it's not your first visit to DF or you're there for more than a week. If not, i wouldn't bother.
