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.

This is a beautiful place to visit. There are tourists and locals. There is a plaza, a church and you can buy food or candy. There is music and the ambience is really nice. Sundays can be very crowded because people attend to church. The...More

The tree-shaded streets of Coyoacan make a pleasant visit for a day from the more hectic big city rush you leave behind in Mexico City. It is interesting to walk the streets and appreciate the interesting architecture, and then stroll through the market area where...More

My daughter and I decided to go to this unique neighborhood and I'm glad we did. A big market, a big square with excellent restaurants. I'd go if you have time.

Spectacular colonial architecture with many pedestrian areas, family friendly and full of interesting restaurants. Appropriate for a nice stroll alone or with other people. Frida Kahlo's museum is there.

Was interesting to be in a suburb just a short distance away from the city centre and feel immersed in the local culture. It does not seem too touristy as it is a location which is widely used by locals for their daily commute and...More

I do not recommend the plaza in Coyoacan. It is very dirty and expensive. There are also many people using children to sell art crafts and candies. All of the kids looked ill and had yellow eyes, I'm assuming from hepatitis. It was a horrible...More

Must see. Artists place to be, including Frida Kahlo´s house. Head to Coyoacans market after your visit to Frida´s House and the Anahuacalli museum. Have lunch at Tostadas Coyoacan at the market: clean, fast and cheap.

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
