Lived here in Coyo just 4 blocks away from Frida Kahlos house for nearly 5 years. I love this area....safe, great to have dogs as pets, great to walk the parks and the Piazza is always alive...

Beautiful old town that eventually was included in the expansion of Mexico City. Many restaurants of delicious and typical Mexican food. Well worth the visit. An enormous and beautiful church with constant masses round the clock.

Love this area of Mexico City, perhaps even more then the city's historical centre. Café El Jarocho is the best coffee I've had during my stay in Mexico! Besides that, there's great museums and little parks within walking distance.

I loved having gone to this little town. Its so nice and peaceful, very traditional. I absolutely recommend Frida Kahlos house, and if you are into communist history, the Leon Trotsky house (although not as well kept).

This quarter offer leafy streets, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of cafes and eateries to enjoy a couple of 'timeout' hours. This visit should be combined with the Frieda Kahlo and Trotsky museums which both offer... More

Beautiful City and Frida Kahlo amazing. Highly recommend, but dont use WAYAK. This tour guide kept pushing me to complete my business to keep on schedule, but I am handicapped and could not walk fast enough.

Coyoacan reveals itself in layers as you wander the streets, sit in the plaza sipping Cafe de Olla from El Jarocho, shop for the freshest fruits and vegetables in the market, or visit one of the many museums. For art, history, and Mexican culture, Coyoacan has it all.

We got a tip from a Mexican friend to go here at night. Lots of good restaurants and music. Worth making the effort.
