Coyoacan, Mexico City

4.7
#1 of 666 in Shopping in Mexico
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.

  • At the time and moment that you will find the streets filled with people. One of the most classic sites of the city of Mexico, colourful and diverse. If you come to the city of Mexico you must visit Coyoacan, drink coffee, eat a corn or enjoy a drink at one of the bars.

  • Beautiful! Lots of variety at a great price, the people very friendly and in the main market the food is amazingly delicious. It is a very nice place to take pictures but with care, some sellers are not in agreement and it is better to prevent problems, other vendors charge for photos. It is a place that worth a visit, and more to bring something of Mexico to family and friends. I have attached photos of the market and the main Park.
