Check out the markets on a Saturday, its a fun excursion. Best way to get to San Angel is to get the metro bus to La Bombilla and then walk straight up La Paz. There is some great art and crafts on sale throughout the cobblestone streets.

Reminds the visitor of the lavish way of life of the early elite. The roads are mostly cobblestone in the preserved section, buildings are brightly colored.

Walking over the streets of San Angel is travel to the Colonial times in Mexico City. There are a Convent with an interesting Museum. Watch the Residencial Architecture is delightful and Avenida de la Paz has some restaurant with excellent food.

I came here for the Saturday Bazar Sabado, walking from the Coyoacan Metro station, which I do NOT recommend; it's a major schlepp! The scene that presented upon my arrival was one of complete chaos. After I did the bazar, wandered the cobblestoned village, then had lunch at one of the outdoor cafes off the Plaza San Jacinto which was... More

You can enjoy the colonial architecture of the houses and churches. There are many restaurants with typical Mexican food, and many little coffee shops where... More

This is a place where you must stroll and linger to enjoy. Bring comfortable but stylish walking shoes, however. Unless you're accustomed to it, the cobblestone streets and uneven small sidewalks will challenge experienced urban explorers. I find this area quaint with its Saturday market, choices of boutique shops and artisans and craftsmen in and around the park.

This was my first trip to Mexico City. My hesitation in coming here before was fueled by every stereotype that Americans, most of whom have never been here, have unfairly placed on this city. But I finally took the leap given my love for history, culture, art and architecture--all of which Mexico City has in spades. As one might anticipate,... More

We wanted to visit Bazar Sabado in San Angel but once we arrived, it was absolutely dissapointing due to excessive crowds and vehicular traffic.Also, the type of crafts that was being sold outdoors was mediocre and did not compare to the ones we had purchased on a previous trip to Mexico at other markets.The art show is set up at...
