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

Our Uber recommended this place to us, she dropped us off in the evening, and it was booming with activity, families walking around happily. There's a big artisan market, and after shopping for Mexican souvenirs, we walked a couple of feet to great outdoor restaurants, where we had awesome mariscos and enjoyed tropical music by a trio who sang at...

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.
