This Mexico City neighborhood is the place I kept returning to during my stay in Mexico. It was the home to Frida Khalo, Diego Rivera, Leon Trotsky, Dolores del Rio and many more. It's very artsy and beautiful. From the central parts of Mexico City you can get there by subway. You get of at station Coyoacan although this is... More

During the week you'll find a small group of residents enjoying the plaza area. Friday and Saturday nights, the locals and visitors crowd this special place. A beautiful church is the centerpiece of this area. You'll find lots of food vendors and of course shopping. There is also a Sanborn's nearby. If you're not a customer of Sanborn's and need... More

As other reviewers have said: This neighborhood is completely different, in look and feel, from the rest of Mexico City. Leon Trotsky, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo lived in this neighborhood "back in the day." You can see their museums in this neighborhood.

Great neighborhood up visit. Go to the park for a snack and a Michelada beer and hang with the locals. We rented a van and tour guide who took us to many places and this was one if them. If you can, this is a great way to get around in the city to as many places as you want... More

Coyoacan has colonial and pre-colonial art and architecture as well as Frida Kahlo's home. The city's main plaza and market will give you an authentic experience of Mexico.

Very nice area, previuosly the stomping ground of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Trotzky. There are plenty of lovely neighborhood restaurants which offer honest local food. The Kahlo museum is a must, not too far is Trotzky's house too, it's a very nice and quiet residential area these days, good to visit to have a better understanding of Mexico City.
