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. « less

It's a must see in Mexico City. I really liked this zone. And I loved the fountain with the coyotes. It's excellent to be in a date! ;)

This is one of my favorite places in Mexico City. It is a beautiful area ringed with very old and ornate buildings. The open square has a relaxed festive atmosphere that is great to enjoy a cup of coffee, people watch, or sit under a shade tree and read a good book. The old church/convent is the centerpiece of the... More

Another must see in Mexico City. Walk through the casa of Frida and Diego. Well designed house with Frida's furniture, art, and her life as she lived in this house. The surrounding area with artist and shops is good place to buy gifts for yourself and friends.

I went to the Kahlo museum and the Trotsky house and then walked through Coyoacan. Shopped at the market. Saw some beautiful old churches. Had a michelada and some tostadas at Hacienda de la Cortes. But just generally, this is a beautiful, clean neighborhood! You'll enjoy it.

If you want a quiet, safe neighborhood find a chalet in this part of town. No proper hotels. Hidalgo square is a fun place to hang out. Frida Kahlo and Trotsky Museums are here. Has a metro stop for getting around.
