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

People who know this place better are divided in their appreciations of the delegation. I personally have found that the Delegation is slightly over-rated but still is worth pay a visit to the historic center. I recommend doing so at night when the small-town, pre-columbian atmosphere is stronger. The variety of restaurants and public events going on is something to... More

I was expecting to see interesting architecture around the neighborhood but apart from high walls which protect the houses, there is not much to see. The only interesting sight is the main square with its church. Avoid hopping onto the tour on the little red train as it is a waste of your time. It cost only 50 pesos for... More

From the metro stop we spent a few hours explored the nice neighbourhood before arriving the town center! There are many ”hacienda” from old time and now converted into private houses or flats. Along the cobblestone street we were able to visit couple of them of government property for free! The town center itself is very nice and the church... More

One of the prettiest parts of Mexico City. Beautiful colonial buildings, lush greenery around a large square that has cafés all around ithe perimeter. We had time for lunch and a visit to the Frida Kahlo House/Museum which is a must-see, too. I could easily have spent the day roaming the streets of this gem of a neighborhood. Next time... More

But also San Angel Inn, which I love. A huge hacienda turned bar and restaurant, with lovely old world atmosphere and great service. It is quiet and elegant neighborhood. The Kahlo house always seems to have a line to get in, so I have not been there.

This town was engulfed by Mexico City but it has small town charm and is a very good place to walk. There are nice restaurants and a good size plaza. Coyoacan has excellent tortas and the museums of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky.

everyone comes for the "blue" house, but venture a little further and the leafy streets and large park are worth a wander. the metro is a little inconvenient but walkable. viveros a bit closer than coyoacan stations. decent food at the market and little cafes

It is a lovely old town that is now part of Mexico City. It is so charming - full of good restaurants. It has a lovely old market where you can find every kind of traditional and old stuff you would need. As far as I heard, it is a safe area. It is highly recommended.

What a great way to spend the afternoon in this colonial neighborhood. It felt as though we had stepped back in time. We got off at the Miguel Angel station via the metro. We walked up Miguel Angel Ave for about 20 minutes and made a left at Felipe Carrillo Puerto. This is the main neighborhood street that will take... More
