Create an itinerary including Coyoacan
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. A visit to Coyoacan represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mexico City trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Clean square with a very nice fountain. Many nice restaurants surrounding the town square. And of course, the artisans' market right off the square.

  • Though a nice neighborhood with some churches, parks and sites (primarily Frida Kahlo and Trotsky museums) it is a living neighborhood which would not be my first choice to explore given a time...
