This is a gorgeous park. Its running track is two km long. Perfect for a morning walk or a run. Its packed on Saturday mornings so make sure you arrive early on the weekends.

We walked through Viveros on our way to Coyoacan's main square (we took the subway and got off at the Viveros stop, which worked out perfectly to see the park). Viveros is much different from a larger park like Chapultepec- it's not quite as large,...More

Viveros is not the largest park in Mexico City, but certainly the most quiet. Chapultepec is bigger, but too crowded by people and vendors (tianguis). In Viveros you can walk, stroll, run, sit or lie down on the grass while you see friendly chipmunks approaching....More

reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes
