Home to the unmissable Frida Kahlo House and museum, but there's much more to see. Great indoor and outdoor markets, delicious ice cream shops, lovely church and park, and old cobbled streets to stroll through. A bit of a trek from FD, but can be done by Metro Bus.

A very beautiful, ecclectic neighbourhood with a rich history and number of worthy attractions, from Frida's house, to the food markets, to Trotsky's sanctuary. We were there for a national holiday and very lucky to watch the happy goings on in the main square. Just the part of MC i would live in.

This is one of the nicest neighborhoods in the capital. We got straight to the main square and we were transported to another time, an oasis of tranquility amidst the great city of Mexico. Arriving we did not know where was the Frida Kahlo Museum which was our main destination, so we got lost among its charming streets until we... More

Wonderful place that felt like a stroll back in time. The market is great to experience and there is a buzz around the square.

I LOVED Coyoacan! On the weekends you can take a free tour of the area starting at the home of Cortez. The buildings and architecture are older than anything I have ever seen. Festivals can be found in the square every weekend and great shopping experience in the marketplace. The museum of Frida Kahlo was excellent. La Hacienda de Cortez... More

We loved wandering around Coyoacan on a Saturday. There were many people in the main square, but it didn't feel too crowded. The local police were there, making balloon animals for children. My husband enjoyed a churro and I had pine nut ice cream, a delicious first.

Very cosy area with lots of nice streets and buildings. Nice just to walk around and of course do not miss the market or the ice cream places outside of it!

This lovely neighbourhood in Mexico City is charming. Enjoy the Frida Kahlo house and then wander to the centre and sit in one of the cafes for drinks or have lunch here. There is an artisan market in the centre. There is also a wonderful local market located between the Frida Kahlo house and the centre.

The parks and the old houses are enchanting. Great place for an afternoon stroll and nieve de maracuya after the Kahlo museum. The colors and the cobblestone streets make food lovely photographs.
