Coyoacan has always been a great place for a weekend afternoon walk after lunch in one of the many great small bistrots. A great colonial spot in Mexico City, Coyoacan has had a wonderful facelift and is well worth the visit. You can also make time and go to the Blue House, the Frida Kahlo Museum in Coyoacan and make... More

One of the very best things about Mexico DF- The studio offers brilliant architecture-- albeit best for Diego and not so great for Frida if she had mobility issues. An interesting construction and a style I could embrace for my own living quarters. Wonderful neighbourhood [and very high end] The Blue house which they lived in is a wonderful place... More

It carries that hipster a hipster vibe.. Has everything you need as a souvenir I could think about. There's a market for artesanias, another for raw products for those who want chiles and cajeta to take home. There's a whole other one to eat. Most important la casa de Frida Kahlo is 4 blocks away from the main plaza.. A... More

Very cute part of town. Went there on a Friday night, lots of people walking around the park and having coffee. Many restaurants. It feels like a small town. Very hip and bohemian

Its just a little beautiful town that became a city borough without even trying. Swalloed by the DF, coyoacan is not only a delight in the eyes, but the tastebuds as well. Churros, Quesadillas, Chocolate, Art, the handcrafts market... is just a perfect sunday afternoon trip! - Take it, you won't regret it.

Coyoacan has a very low key vibe, almost a Bohemian feel. An old neighborhood with cobbled streets, great little restaurants, cafes, and shops, as well as architectural gems and some must see museums, such as the Frida Kahlo. Everything accessible by walking once you've arrived. Wear flat shoes, and feel comfortable and safe walking around and enjoying the place.

There is so much to see in Coyoacan. We had gone to the Frida Kahlo and Trotsky museums on a trip before, so this time we came in search of Hernan Cortez's first house and the house of his translater/lover Malinche. But, what astounded us the most was the church of San Juan Baptist and the Dominican /Jesuit monastery beside... More

We wandered here after visiting the Frida Kahlo museum. This is a great area to explore: interesting architecture, tree-lined streets, bustling food markets (we had the best pozole in one of the big buildings with multiple food vendors), and a vibrant zocalo.
