About
Five centuries’ worth of architecture and Mexican culture are embedded in this district’s plazas and narrow cobbled streets. Start your tour of Coyoacan at the lively Jardin Centenario park which is surrounded by inviting cafes and townhouses. Then, set off to visit the Frida Kahlo Museum that is dedicated to the life and works of the Mexican artist herself. On the way there, pop by the artisans market to hunt for handmade keepsakes and visit the Coyoacan Market for fresh tostadas and gorditas. For a full experience, take a guided tour around Coyoacan, which includes a visit to the floating gardens of neighboring Xochimilco. – Tripadvisor

The area
Address
Parque Centenario, Mexico City 04000 Mexico
Neighbourhood: 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.

    Delightful neighborhood to walk, relax and take coffee
    Delightful neighborhood - full of energy, parks, interesting architecture, food and things to do! The food stands on Higuera (close to the national post office) are tasty and affordable. There are many coffee shops and places to sit, relax and people watch.

    A must visit short trip from city center.
    This town is gorgeous and well worth the drive from Mexico City center. We visited the Frida Kahlo house and then strolled around this gorgeous place. It is very leafy and charming. There are very good restaurants around the square/park. We have a relaxing drink and light lunch at one of these places and really enjoyed the entire experience.

    My favorite neighborhood in Mexico City.
    On our visit to Mexico City in November of 2023 we stayed in La Condesa. We explored Roma Norte, Polanco, the historic center (Zocalo), and Coyoacan. Our favorite by far was Coyoacan. So many bars, restaurants, cafes, parks, and shops. And, "One of the oldest churches in Mexico City, Coyoacán's remarkable temple of San Juan Bautista remains one of the least visited, but it's not one to miss." - I completely agree, a beautiful church right in the heart of the neighborhood.

Nice way to spend a day in CDMX
Lovely neighborhood -- more like a town, really -- with pretty parks, a lively market, historic churches and, of course, Frida Kahlo's home.

Mexican food: Tostadas
If you want to enjoy typical mexican food, besides tacos, you can try "tostadas" at the food market in Coyoacán, Mexico City.

Coyoacán feels like Coyoacán
If Polanco feels like Paris and Roma a bit hipsterish New York style then head to Coyoacán! Coyoacán feels like Coyoacán. Stop visiting these copycat locations and head to authentic Mexico City. Try Churros Jordan!

I could live here
A truly beautiful and charming part of Mexico City. Lots of tree-lined streets, great restaurants, and a relaxed vibe. Plus Frida Kahlo's house.

The best neighbourhood we visited in CDMX by far. Add in Frida Khalo's house and it makes it unmissable really.

Lots of colour as you might expect, but fairly calm and laid back too.
