Owner description: Coyoacan, a former village and now one of the 16 boroughs of Mexico City, is a historic center. 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.

It's a southern suburb of D.F full of local culture. Go to the market and eat there! I had tostadas with octopus, beef, shrimp, and another with pork. The park is very nice and it's a good place to sit down and relax.

Great exposure to other culture, while sharing the commonality of art. Share the experience with not only Mexican Nationals, but people from all over the world.

Quaint little suburb within the city, great eating, great markets and home to La Casa Azul (Frida Khalo's house).

We were there on Halloween, the Friday before the Day of the Dead. There was a lot going on with what was basically a fair with a lot of offrendas, music, and people all around. The Church in the heart of the town is beautiful and worth a visit. I know the town is famous for strange ice cream flavors... More

The area has a nice feel about it, quiet and not rushed. But what really makes it worth the visit are the Frida Kahlo Museum, the Trotsky house and the best of all in my opinion, the Anacalli (not sure of spelling) museum that Diego Rivera put together. The latter was one of the best things we saw in Mexico.... More

This is a place so full of history! Loved the streets and the old houses, and little cafes around the main plaza. I'd wish they could open the Concepcion church again, I wasn't able to get in.

There is a lot to see on the main square - the church, one of the first city halls built by Hernan Cortés in the early 1500's, the coyote fountain, the cafes and restaurants as well as cultural activities taking place (theatre, music for example). Nice place to spend an afternoon on the weekend. It is worth a visit to... More

Though I didn't have much time to visit on my business trip, it was lovely to briefly walk through this area, stop in the central park and briefly enter the cathedral. The Dia de los Muertos decorations and altars were still up, which was lovely. I had lunch in a café on the square, The Dancers (?), which was delicious.
