It's a nice place to visit there is museums like Frida Kahlo and the trutsky museum. The town has a lot of stores (for those who like buying).The museums are interesting most people don't get bored and if you bother learning a bit about history I would recommend you go. Don't go to the mercado de arte (art shops) as... More

Sine we arrive to Mexico city we've been visiting the most beautiful places and Coyoacán is definitely one o them. If you want to know a folkloric place in Mx City this is the option.

We went on a Holiday Monday and it was perfect. Not so crowded but not lonely either. We walked down the streets, had a cup of coffee at El Jarocho, had quesadillas for lunch in the market and then a delicious ice cream (Coyoacan is famous for the ice cream parlors around the plazas). You can find several Museums, Handcrafts... More

We were recommended this market because it only happened on the weekend and we were expecting a huge food market, but I guess something got lost in the translation and it was more of a fair vibe with people walking around selling random stuff near the church. The only food are taco cafes and other small, but still good restaurants... More

Ah, Coyoacan. After spending a week in Centro Historico and Sur, Coyoacan represented the Mexico City I WANTED to visit. It's quaint, it's safe, it's absolutely beautiful. If I could live anywhere, I would choose Coyoacan. Don't miss the Kahlo Museo -- she is there, I swear she is.

We came for the Dia de los Muertos festival here, and they had the best festival in town. Full street market with festival foods, colorful decorations and lots of big ofrendas. Its cute any time of the year, but its especially the place to be if you're there in late october/early november.

Plenty of bars and nice places to eat, hang out or drinking with friends. The center is the bad thing about it, even though it's beautiful and has several outstanding buildings and colonial streets, it smells pretty bad and is always too crowded. Avoid the very centre if possible.

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.
