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

I simply love this neighborhood/ zone of Mexico City. If I had to describe Coyoacán, I'd say it is similar to a typical colonial, little town in the south of the city. You can see huge, old colonial houses painted in bright colors: blue, pink, orange, yellow, green. In fact, after downtown (Tenochtitlán), Coyoacán is the oldest zone built in... More

Want a break from the hustle and bustle? Go and spend a few days in coyoacan! We stayed in a great B&B on Av Francisco Sosa which is one of the most beautiful streets in the whole city (we found it on Air B&B). Frida Kahlo's house is here, a square and a garden where people hang out and eat... More

This neighborhood is shady and comfortable. I could only be here for a little while, so can't attest to its other attractions, but for fans of Frida Kahlo, this is a must go location when visiting Mexico City.

A truly beautiful neighborhood with tons of character, besides the obvious attractions, such as Fridas house there is an excellent artisans market on weekends where you can find unique one of a kind jewelry and crafts. Also a lovely plaza surrounded by cool little shops and restaurants as well as tree lined streets. It has lots of hidden treasures scattered... More

Yes, Coyoacan is lovely and colonial and charming. But I'd like to throw in a good word for the Museo de las Intervenciones located in the ex-Convento (curiously, Monastery! Churobusco, at the far eastern side of Coyoacan. The building is the site of a battle between Mexican and American troops in 1947. Appropriately enough, it is dedicated to the numerous... More

I've been to Coyoacan twice now with 18 years in between visits. Naturally my main reason for it being ranked no. 1 is Casa Azul. I love Londres Street and the entire surrounding neighborhood. Take time to explore this area! The market is so quaint and the locals are extremely friendly. It is like taking a step back in history!... More

While researching this trip, I ran across a few reviews that said Coyoacan is a "must see" part of any trip to Mexico City. And these reviews weren't talking about Frida Kahlo's house or Trosky's house - just the neighborhood itself. I kept wondering "how can a neighborhood be a must see?" Well, it just is. It's a little out... More

(I'll talk about the centre of Coyacan here) Fountains, trees, colours, little shops, restaurants... Just a pleasant area basically. Nothing spectacular, but compared to the surrounding hustle and bustle ofthe city, it's a nice little area. Often some multi-cultural food/souvenirs thing going on. Nice for a couple of hours. Metro Coyoacan (slimey green line) is 1.5 km NW of the... More

We were taken here by our local tour guide. It's a charming area highlighted by a brilliant blue Mercado. We went on a weekend when scores of local families were enjoying the sun and ambiance. Although we weren't enthralled by the wares, we did have some great mole and seafood tostadas and one of the many food stalls. They were... More
