It's easy to tell Coyoacan is a rich neighborhood- it's very clean, with gorgeous houses, and fancy restaurants. The cathedral is beautiful (and they let you take pictures!), with a very lovely courtyard. We took a short trolley tour of the neighborhood which was a great way to see everything. Also, Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's house, is in this neighborhood.... More

Great neighborhood in Mexico. Clean, a lot of tourists. There's an ice cream shop near the gazebo that has ice cream that's out of this world. Don't miss it if you're there!

This was a very chill and relaxing place to visit. There are ice cream stores nearby and my friend and I enjoyed our ice cream while sitting on a bench in the park. There is an old tree that has been carved in that was interesting. There are fountains and statues to admire and a market nearby to purchase souvenirs... More

We had lunch in one of the restaurants facing the quiet, quaint square with a fountain. Afterwards we walked around the square, toured the church & walked through the inside market. A great place to enjoy an afternoon lunch outdoors and a stroll afterwards.

Beautiful Coyoacan! Definitely the place where you should consider buying a house and settle down if you decide to spend the rest of your life in Mexico City!

I visited Coyaocan 11 years ago on a weekday and it was relatively empty of people, very nice. Today it was Sunday and a sunny day and by 1 pm the whole area was pretty crowded. Still worth visiting just be prepared for more people and longer time for finding a place to park. Viisited a small artisan market and... More

Love viisit Coyoacan; we were lost driving around but it was nice. The street are just amazing; the houses retain their old fronts. The traditional "nieves" (ice creams) different all tastes, traditional candies as "pepitorias", "alegrias" & "merengues". It was Sunday so had a fair and lots of food stalls

Visited Coyoacan on a Friday. Make sure to stop by the market. You're sure to find lots of cool things much cheaper than any touristy beach town. After that we got some dressed up popsicles - a must in Mexico City! Then we chilled by the fountain and watched people play. After the checked out the church and the gazebo.... 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.
