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.

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.

If you go to Frida Kahlo´s Museum tell the taxi or your private van to go aroung the Coyoacan Plaza where the coyotes statues that gave the name to this part of the city are. Try the churros with their variety of fillings in any of the little restaurants near the plaza and variety of coffees at Cafe El Jarocho

well worth a visit to get away from the hustle of central Mexico City. Get off the metro at San Angel and walk between San Angel and Coyocan (or there is a station at Coyoacan itself). Arts and craftsy, nice shops and restaurants; a lively market square with food stalls and dancing, the place where Mexican families hang out on... More

We took the metro from the Zocalo centro district of Mexico City to Coyoacan, the trip cost only five pesos and was very fast, and safe. We spent the afternoon at the Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera museums, both are very nice! And then wandered through the public markets, enjoying all the wonderful food, and handicrafts to be found. The... More
