Give yourself a full day in this area to explore the side streets, enjoy some El Jarocho coffee, and check out the Frida museum. It's also interesting to check local museums and learn about the ex-pat Soviet community...the Trotsky museum is close by too.

Coyoacan is a neighborhood that still keeps the feeling of an old peaceful town in the middle of the noisy busy crowded Mexico City . Sundays are way too crowded, much better to visit on a saturday , or weekdays altough some things might be closed . Drink a cup of coffe at El Jarocho , a century old coffee... More

Coyoacan is the neighborhood you will visit when you go to the Frida Kahlo museum. It is one of the better neighborhoods in all of Mexico City. Beautiful homes and you feel very safe here. Great restaurants and bars, lots of ice cream shops, and a couple of nice parks. Not real easy to get here with public transport, but... More

This is where you can get a really lovely feel of Mexico city. It used to be a suburb where they city folk build their summer homes with beautiful gardens, squares, tree lined streets, pastry shops and cafes. Great for a Sunday stroll after a visit to the Frida Khalo, then some hot chocolate with churos, a visit to the... More

My girlfriend and I met a few chilango friends at the town center, then walked to the market for breakfast. We ate at a restaurant El Coyote, and the food was excellent with great prices. Each one of our breakfasts included orange juice and coffee. This was a charming town, and a great way to start our Frida Museum Tour.

It's a very charming little spot outside of the more hectic parts of the city. There wasn't much happening when I was there, but still nice to roam around.

We spent a couple of hours exploring the area. There were some great street markets to look around and it was a much more relaxed atmosphere than the centre of Mexico City. We only spent a short time here, but I would have loved to have come back at night to go in the local bars and really soak up... More

Staying in Coyoacan

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.
