Owner description: Coyoacan, a former village and now one of the 16 boroughs of Mexico City, is a historic center. 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.

A nice neighborhood with many restaurants and a nice market. The market is filled with food stalls offering a variety of Mexican meals. Also, a good place to buy fresh fruits & vegitables. The plaza is very peacful with a beautiful church and fountain that must be seen.

We took the metro, walked 1 mile or so (according to fitbit) to get to the Square. Quite disappointing, The square at Ciuadadela was everybit as nice and had an amazing artisans/crafts center across the street where you can bargain for goods - -

This is just a super place to walk starting from Ave. Mexico all the way down to the Plaza Hidalgo. I believe in walking because you discover so much about the neighborhood such as the hundreds of flower shops within the Viveros (enter at Berlin). Every type of tree, plant and flower is for sale...just the orchids are a show... More

Love the artist''s market. Many different goodies and inexpensive. Sitting at a table along the plaza is a wonderful experience with song and music to enjoy. Of course, don't forget that Frida Kahlo's house is in Coyoacán. Also Leon Trotsky lived there until he was assassinated. This is a do not miss experience.

We spent several wonderful hours wandering around the squares and streets of this neighbourhood. The market is also worth a visit and serves up some great and inexpensive Mexican fare.

'wonderful little town in the south of Mexico City. This place is a Must see, including Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo's home and museum. Shopping is amazing: arts and crafts from Mexico, one of my favorite!

Like finding an oasis in the middle of the city, surrounded by son many green areas, Coyoacan is a magical town with lots of different atractions! Museums, gastronomy, street art in various forms, bars, typical munchis at every corner and the crown jewel: the church!! Coyoacan is a must-no questions asked!!!

Here is a great place to come at the end of the day for drinks and dinner. This old part of the city, 50 years ago it wasn't even part of today's city, is alive with great bars and restaurants. Cobbled streets, circle a park area, with a wonderful fountain of two dogs/wolves? We found this area very safe and... More

Coyoacan is worth visiting. The Frida Kahlo museum, the nice bed and breakfast place where we stayed, the beautiful buildings and great restaurants are definitely worth our money.
