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

In some time Coyoacán was the public square where the romantic poets, surrealist painters, street musicians and the intellectual bohemia of Mexico gathered. It is still common to see as they walk city dwellers with their dogs, couples kissing, artists working outdoors. It is a great place to chat, have a coffee, strolling through their streets and enjoy the Mexico... More

Beautiful place, great restaurants, churches, hand craft markets, you can take the trolley or just walk, nice traditional architecture in the close neighborhoods, don't forget Frida Kallo museum and on Saturday, San Angel bazaar.

No trip to Mexico City is complete without a visit to Coyoacan. The setting is charming, relaxing and romantic, with live musicians, tree-lined streets and historic architecture. There are many cafes and lovely shops selling traditional handicrafts, as well as a two-story market brimming with unique souvenirs and novelties. Plan on spending the whole day here - there is a...

While Coyoacan’s most famous attraction is Casa Azul, be sure to do a walk about in this charming section of Mexico City. Sometimes when we are so intent in taking in all the famous museums and attractions, we fail to take time to just enjoy the pace of live in Mexico. Stroll the area as the houses are delightful and...

Take the Metro to Miguel Angel de Quevedo Station, then walk up Av Universidad, turn right on Av Francisco Sosa and follow all the way to the two squares (Jardin Centenario and Jardin Hidalgo). Francisco Sosa is a delight in old colonial houses, and old trees - lots of colors. Jardin Hidalgo is surrounded by restaurants and bars. Great place... More

If someone gave me the option of picking up my life and moving it to Coyoacan, I would take it. My favorite afternoon on my DF trip was spent in this area. We took the rather long metro ride from the Insurgentes stop with the intention of seeing Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul and maybe grabbing a bite to eat. The... More

Our family of five (kids to grandparent ages) enjoyed our couple of hours in Coyoacan. We were driven there by a driver, and toured around by a guide. The plaza/square area was nice with many restaurants around it. Our guide took us a couple of blocks away to what he called a food "market" for lunch. It was basically bunch... More

One of our only regrets about our week in Mexico City is that we were not there on a Saturday and could spend market day in Coyoacan with Sergio (Beyond the Surface Tours). Very cool place to hang out and soak all that makes this city and country amazing.

A few blocks away from the Frida Kahlo house, is the Coyoacan Market where you can have a great lunch. We ate a "tostadas Coyoacan" and loved it! You feel like you are farther away from Mexico City than you really are.
