Our guidebook recommended the walk along Avenida Francisco Rosa from Coyoacan to San Angel. Don't do it! It's a long walk. Both Coyoacan and San Angel are worth a visit but take a cheap taxi ride in between.

We walked from the Mercado Sabado in San Angel along Francisco Sosa all the way to Coyoacan. My favorite day in Mexico City!

All Coyoacan area is awesome and architecture is great. The central plaza is within a walking distance. Colonial style is preserved in all the area with ancient houses, all well preserved.

A great way to discover Coyoacan is to take this avenue West to East and then sit at a cafe on the main plaza. This is one of the oldest colonial street in Latin America, don't miss it if you go to San Angel or...More

I happened upon this street by chance in my efforts to find the Casa Azul. It is a beautiful, quiet street. The houses have colorful, old-time designs. Taking this street will lead you to the beautiful Colonia Coyoacan. It has a wonderful, small-town feel to...More
