In a circle about 1 kilometer wide around the square yuo''ll find colonial buildings, town hall, 2 of the first catolic churches in america, museums, parks, the street called "The beautyfull street in Mexico City", the market place, and a lot of restaurants. It's my home town. Better between Monday and friday, in week ends it's too crowded.

Really interesting to wander around the little town of Coyoacan after visiting Frida Kahlo's House (Casa Azul). The park and church and cobbled streets are lovely. But we liked the market best. We wish we had been hungrier - so many different food stalls to try. (we entered and found one cafe by itself, not knowing there was an entire... More

Very quiet and nice residential area where Frieda Kahlo used to live. Not filled with restaurants or commercial establishments. A few interesting boutiques and some nice architecture.

This neighborhood, home of the Casa Azul - Frida Kahlo home and museum and the home and museum of Leon Trotsky is a great place to visit. Buy tickets to the Frida Kahlo museum online in advance so you don't have to wait in line.

Home to the unmissable Frida Kahlo House and museum, but there's much more to see. Great indoor and outdoor markets, delicious ice cream shops, lovely church and park, and old cobbled streets to stroll through. A bit of a trek from FD, but can be done by Metro Bus.

A very beautiful, ecclectic neighbourhood with a rich history and number of worthy attractions, from Frida's house, to the food markets, to Trotsky's sanctuary. We were there for a national holiday and very lucky to watch the happy goings on in the main square. Just the part of MC i would live in.

This is one of the nicest neighborhoods in the capital. We got straight to the main square and we were transported to another time, an oasis of tranquility amidst the great city of Mexico. Arriving we did not know where was the Frida Kahlo Museum which was our main destination, so we got lost among its charming streets until we... More

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.
