Coyoacan is a very nice place with several old building with colonial details. There is a nice church, and also a nice market, with many souvernirs. I really liked the old building. In the near circumstances, there is also a nice restaurant, Cantina la Coyoacana, please see my review.

You will anyway get lost and end up there. Coyocan artisanal market is a must to visit. There are lots of opportunities to eat and drink. Be careful to have local currency with you on sunday because all the exchange offices are closed and sellers are not likely to help you to shop in dollars.

Love Coyoacan. A leisurely stroll around the main park turns into a magical world of sight, taste and sound. The architectural detail of the historic buildings that surround the park take you back to older times. The brick paved streets and restaurants add to the sense of being in a different time. This is an artistic area where you can... More

This is a very nice neighborhood with lots of things to do, it's best if you walk around so you get the full experience. There's tons of options for things to do, eat, drink, lots of tours or whatever you feel like doing. It's kinda safe and quiet compared to the rest of some other places in MX City.

You can sit in one... More

We stayed for a few days right near the Frida Kahlo Casa Azul. Although there are plenty of tourists around that square block, it really felt like we were amongst a lot of locals most of the time as we explored the various neighborhoods that make up Coyoacan.

This area has a very famous church which is beautiful. The town square has many eateries and fun shopping. It is also walking distance to the Frieda Khalo museo.

There are some beautiful old buildings and houses and there are also some parks and gardens with very interesting constructions and trying to keep that 17th century atmosphere. But the area is so crowded and perhaps it is because Mexico city doesn´t have too many places, parks or gardens big enough for thousands of people who gather every weekend like... More

This is one of my favorite places to spend time when in Mexico City. It's an area full of artists and has an artsy feel as well. It's a great place to spend time with your friends and has plenty of coffee shops and restaurants in the area.

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.
