Wow, what a surprise, very relaxed and very beautiful.
We found it was also very clean and we tried their famous ice cream here as well.
Lots of beautiful buildings and lovely people.

Herself and myself (both 75) rented a casa in Coyoacan for the entire month of March, 2019. We are independent travellers, and like to burrow into cities with rich overlays of peoples, cultures, histories, language, and religion. Mexico City is certainly that, a true world class city, and Coyoacan was a beautiful and delightful place to base ourselves for the month. Many reviews here are available about the world class attractions found in the Centro Historico, but less is written about the "south" where Coyoacan is located. We found many wonderful things to do down "south" and this review will focus on those.

But first a note about travel within CDMX. We found that getting to Centro from Coyoacan was about a 45 minute deal, whether we used the Metro or UBER. Because the two Coyoacan Metro stations are sort of on the barrio's edges, if you include walking time to and from the stations, point to point UBER is probably faster. UBER in CDMX is fabulous -- never waited more than 5 minutes, drivers professional, courteous, cars new and clean, inexpensive. We did fine when we took the Metro -- efficient, clean, easy to understand -- except for the incredible rush, crush of people. At our age, UBER was usually the choice.

Our casa in Coyoacan was incredible, on a private lane just off Francisco Sosa Blvd -- one of the most beautiful colonial streets in all CDMX. Had a roof top patio where we could start each day over coffee. Here are some things we really enjoyed in this part of the city:

.. Frida Kahlo's famous Casa Azul.

..Plaza Santa Catarina. About half way along Francisco Sosa Blvd, beautiful small plaza with a great arts center. Excellent outdoor cafe in the arts center.

.. Side by side Plazas Hidalgo and Centennario. Cathedral here, multiple restaurants, street buskers, balloons!

.. Red Trolley ride through Coyoacan, In front of the Cathedral. Delightful
look.

.. Trotsky house. Preserved. Interesting to history buffs.

.. Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera. 10 minute ride in nearby San Angel.

.. Museo and Church El Carmen. 16th century. Fascinating. Also in San Angel.

.. Museo Delores Olmedo. Diego's patron. Exquisite grounds. Great collection of work by Diego and Frida.

.. Museo Anshuacalli. Diego's collection pre-Colombian art. Jaw dropping architecture.

..Museo Nacional De La Acuarela. Off the upper end of Francisco Sosa. Watercolors primarily. Beautiful grounds, nice little cafe. Free chamber music concerts on Sundays.

.. Canal Boats of Xochimilco. Essential CDMX Experience. Sundays about noon are best. Rent a boat, cervezas, floating mariachi bands, food vendors, extended families rent large boats having a blast.

.. Sunday afternoon walkabout. Start at the park across from the Mercado Coyoacan. Dancing, art, lots of people. Browse the old Mercado. Frida shopped here. Walk over to Plazas. Have a blast.

Coyoacán is one of the borough of Mexico City. Coyoacan is known and very popular by visitors, domestic and international as a cultural hub and two small but welknown museums of Frida Kahlo Museum and the National Museum of Popular Culture. Coyoacan was a small historic independent village and now boasted as
“historic center¨ which keep the original village layouts such as plazas, narrow streets and building structures from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. When in Mexico City, consider a day trip to Coyoacan. It is easily accessed by subway to the new area combining with 20 minute walk to the historic village area.

The area of Coyoacan was described to me as a market. Having been forced fed the obligatory visits to Obsidian and tequila shops i was reluctant to visit. I'm glad I did because this is a perfect place to visit . Eat in one of the many restaurants or in the fruit , food and vegetable market. Sit in the square and enjoy a nice coffee and churos. Visit the oldest or one of the oldest churches in the city. Combine with a visit to the Frieda Caldo museum (closed Monday).
