what a great afternoon we had in Coyoacan, so much to see and do. Great restaurants, and very cute shops everywhere. The town is great for pictures and just to sit in the plaza watching people!

Great place to hang out and explore for a long day in a very busy atmosphere. This colonial style neighborhood is wonderful to explore, plenty of reasonable restaurants invite you to 'people watch'. Combine the outing with a visit to Frida Kahlo's Blue House which is only a 10 minute walk from the Coyoacan Square.

If Zocalo is the reflection of the colonial-era elite area, then Coyoacan is the reflection of a colonial-era commoner neighborhood. Unlike Zocalo that is full of grand and extravagant buildings, Coyoacan's architecture is much more modest with only the main church that can somewhat match Centro Historico. Perhaps that is why this is such a charming neighborhood! Instead of restaurants,... More

If you want to kill some time in Mexico City then I recommend you visit here. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops to check out. There is also a local market (or bazaar) where the locals pedal their things. You can even get a tattoo there! It is safe and the people are friendly and it has some... More

If you love Frida, then you must come to this charming town that has been virtually swallowed by the growth of Mexico City, but has still managed to maintain its individuality. Casa Azul is the prime location for most travelers, but a night or three here would be well worth your time.

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighborhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
