This is one of my favorite places to spend time when in Mexico City. It's an area full of artists and has an artsy feel as well. It's a great place to spend time with your friends and has plenty of coffee shops and restaurants in the area.

OMG, anyone who is spending any time in Mexico City must spend a day in Coyacan. From the amazing fountain, to its charming restaurants...the Mercados that not only have Mexican people selling their craft but people from many other countries. It was a true world market. It was so peaceful to just walk-I could not stop taking photos-everything about that... More

I was lucky enough to grow up in Coyoacán, and had seen it be transformed from a little town inside the city to a wonderful Tourist attraction. It's traditional old Mexico with a hippy-hipster touch where you can find museums, restaurants folk art, fashion, street markets and trendy places to appeal all budgets. Still very safe to walk around even... More

We visited Coyocan on the 2nd of November - so right on Dias de los Muertos, where there was a HUGE festival on with food from many parts of Mexico, rides for children, artisans selling their wares on every corner, AND a display of altars that were part of a city-wide competition. So really - it was an extraordinarily good... More

As everybody says, you feel like you're visiting a village, a pueblo, the atmosphere is different from the rest of the capital. Walk along the street around Friday Kahlo's house, quiet and and beautifull houses. The house/museum is closed on Sundays.

Found a little place in Coyoacan that was similar to a food court. Several restaurants in one seating area that offered empanadas, smoothies, tacos and pozole. The pigs head was sitting right on the counter and you could request which part of the cured head that you wanted in your soup. As a person that truly loves the most authentic... More

This is good place to visit for a few hours as it has markets, restaurants and street entertainers. A bit like Covent Garden in London but not as expensive. It also has a couple of impressive churches.

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.
