Coyoacan, Mexico City

4.7
#1 of 645 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.

  • Coyoacán is my favourite places in the CDMX, there is a huge variety of places to enjoy, from the Frida Kahlo Museum, Church, theatre or simply walk through its streets and stay in the Center watching street performers. You can enjoy ice cream, Gourmet restaurants, go to the market or buy a coffee and a cream (El Jarocho is my recommendation) and follow your path. You can not miss Coyoacan!
