Located in the central south of Mexico City, has some great historic places to visit and good restaurants and bars. A very liberal part of the city, you may find several performers and sellers of traditional antiques and music.

This is a colonial neighborhood in the southern part of Mexico City. The cobble stoned street, architecture and plazas are a must for visitors as well as the market for food. The area also is home to the Frida Kahlo museum.

Take a cab to Hidalgo Park and enjoy the historic park. It is shady and located in the heart of Coyoacan. There are two main souvenir "tianguis" (flea markets). The park is surrounded by great restaurants and ice cream parlors. The street vendors and the homeless unfortunately come with this experience. Guard your wallets and stretch your legs knowing that... More

Delightful neighborhood. The best market-shopping I found in Mexico City was here, at the "Mercado Artesanal Mexicano." The market carries a wide variety of items - glass hummingbirds, hand-beaded clutches, soaps, candles, ceramics, tattoo parlors, jewelry, and all things Frida Kahlo.

Neighbourhood 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.
