Coyoacan, Mexico City
(4.7/5 based on 4,600+ 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.

  • I was in CDMX a couple of weeks for work, spend a Sunday in Coyoacan allowed me to recharge my energy and feel that he knew best, the city and its culture. Coyoacán is a beautiful place, even though most haunted is the center of Coyoacan neighborhood is much more than that, it is a very busy, with lots of history, with several museums and a very good cuisine and a full craft market, its streets invite you to walk. Highly recommended!

  • This corner of the city of Mexico, represents a glorious past and a beautiful place with provincial flavor where are observed colonial buildings everywhere, a beautiful church, Baroque style, museums like the Frida Kalho, parks of the Centre where the lives of parishioners, visitors and locals of that course to enjoy an ice cream, a good cafe.una beer and a typical craving for the food market , as there are many very attractive places through all the streets of the Centre. In one of the gardens is a beautiful Fountain with two beautiful figures of two coyotes to the Centre, by the sculptor Gerardo Ponzanelli.La House of culture almost always has some theatrical surprises. In the kiosk of the gardens, opposite the old building delegation, or in its surroundings there are musical group of various genres. Finally, it is highly recommended to visit this area, where by the way was the first City Hall, in the 16TH century.

  • A great choice for dinner in the evening to take a coffee or hot chocolate, accompanied by a few churros, enjoy the square of coyoacan and day enjoy ice cream and all the culture that this place offers, also surrounded by museums and tours, a good place to read, talk and enjoy.
