Coyoacan, Mexico City

(4.7/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • All the center of Coyoacan is pure culture and harmony. The House of Frida to the Church of the conchita is unique. Walking in the Center and sit down to eat an ice cream or a traditional corn is priceless. Excellent place.

  • Go to Coyoacán is like stop time. It's amazing how the city enter the village in an instant. There Park and explore it on foot. There you can find the market of crafts, several colonial churches like the parish of San Juan Bautista of large or small church close to the center of Coyoacan Chimalistac. Refuge for foreigners who have found in Coyoacan home by being a sophisticated within traditional village. There you can also visit fritter stalls, restaurants, bookstores, art galleries, parks, sculptures such as the famous coyotes and a family atmosphere that is worth knowing.
