    I love is like living inside Frida, very real a little strong but is a symbol of Coyoacan go to Coyoacan and not to visit the Museum of Frida is to not know MEXICO or Coyoacan, you can buy your tickets online but you still do rank

    This beautiful house full of memories of Diego Rivera and his wife Frida Kahlo. You obviously love these two painters to appreciate also the place where they lived and in which it has been a part of Mexican history. Best to arrive early in the morning to avoid queues too exhausting.

    I remember this place for more than 50 years when I was in elementary school, used to meet in the garden to do homework. Now the crowd control is unbearable!

    If I could give more than five stars, I would! Walk through Frida's former home, experience, and learn more about her life story and artwork. The staff, apart from that, is lovely and extremely friendly to locals and tourists alike. I would try going midday during the week. You might avoid some of the many long tourist lines.

    A mandatory place to visit if you go to the city and love Frida's story. It's interesting to see the place and imagine Frida living there. This is the place where she was born and where she spent her final days. You can also find here the urn with her ashes. An adorable place, I wish I could live there.

    It's a bit busy, but that's understandable. A fantastic opportunity to see where Frida Kahlo lived and created. The exhibition of her dresses is also very good.

    I only gave three stars because it would be unfair to give it fewer. MY issue was we arrived by taxi around noon on a Sunday for an unbelievably long line. Even our cab driver was surprised. Unfortunately we did not have time to wait in what could have been and hour plus line. Very disappointed that we missed the opportunity. Word of advise get their early....

    Food was really delicious and authentic. The tacos are small (which is the authentic way)....so anticipate ordering at least 3. I ordered one chicken and one pomegranate...plus their quesadilla special of the day. Pomegranate didn't taste at all like the fruit - rather a unique fried substitute for meat. There is a small toppings bar for salsas. The nonalcoholic drink menu was awesome - love having unique, refreshing drinks like the watermelon drink I tried. Only counter seating, which made it awkward for a business meeting. And parking is tough...I was lucky to grab a spot nearby on the street after circling around a couple times.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
