The area
Address
Neighborhood: Coyoacán
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.

Beautiful Park
Apr 2021
It is beautiful, albeit closed off per Covid-19 as of 4/28/21. Nice restaurants around and the 2nd most important Catholic church in the city, across the road which made a very nice place to visit.

Authentic neighborhood
Apr 2021 • Friends
The neighborhood looks authentic, very few tourists, most of the restaurants and cafes are full of local people. Old and colorful architecture. Good for half a day and lunch.

Very boring
Apr 2021
The only thing to see here is the name of the place in big 3-d letters in a plaza. After that, snooze fest. Another cathedral, another market. Go somewhere else.

All the plazas closed down as on 7th February. San Juan Bautista can enter but no further that 10 mts.
Artisan market is open. 🤷‍♂️
Still good trip for 2-3 hrs to walk about the town center. Frieda Kahlo museum is closed.

Beautiful Historic City
Sep 2020
The streets are cobble stone and love the history. Frida Khalo grew up there and Hernan Cortez had a residence there. They have ghost tours there but we went in the morning we werent unable to go. The market and the sense of a small town is there even though is in a big city. Another Must - See place.
