Coyoacan, Mexico City

Neighborhood
Best described as a small town within a giant city, Coyoacan represents the historical center of one of Mexico City's 16 boroughs. The sprawling city swallowed up this area in the early 20th century, incorporating the surrounding farms and forests into a pleasant urban neighborhood. The district consists of about 30 city blocks, intersected by narrow cobblestoned streets and dotted with small plazas laid out during the colonial period. Home to mostly residential buildings, the neighborhood manages to retain much of its bohemian character and relaxed atmosphere despite its growing popularity with foreign tourists. Don't miss the area's main church, built in the 16th century. Our Mexico City trip itinerary maker makes visiting Coyoacan and other Mexico City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great place to walk, see houses full of colors and very good restaurants. It can find food of all kinds and any price.

  • Coyoacán is a space that makes you forget that you are in the middle of a place so chaotic and stressful as it can be the city of Mexico. Into the streets, the shade of its trees, constructions dating from the colony and the feeling of openness and tolerance that you find everywhere you receive and welcome, as if you had always been waiting. You will not be able finish you the options of food, entertainment, knowledge that this place offers in less than five days, is a place to visit by itself, completely away from the rest of the city, despite being immersed in it.

  • A very safe place to remember the traditions and the Mexico yesterday. Sweets, ceremonies and great walks along the cobbled streets. A place with modern shops for young people today. Culture... Museums and traditions... Security and many memories... That's Coyoacán.
