Beautiful, historic XVI century Coyoacan is where Spanish conquistadors established their first settlement in what used to be the Aztec's Great Tenochtitlan. It is full of trees, lovely lanes and alleys, at least four XVI century churches whitin a square mile, and many plazas. It has become a favourite place for Mexican and foreign itellectuals due to its cafes, pubs, restaurants and bookshops. A very trendy place to live, visit and enjoy.

Coyoacan is one of the most charming neighbourhoods in all of Mexico City, and it is perfectly possible to spend a whole afternoon walking around the streets, looking at the beautiful buildings, and taking in the atmosphere. A walk through the streets of this area will take you to the birthplace of Frida Kahlo, the stunning Templo de San Jacinto, and to the bustling Plaza de San Jacinto. Perch in the plaza and people watch to get a true sense of Mexico City living.Recommended for:

Coyoacan is colonial-style neighborhood with a boho-hipster vibe. It's located a few kilometers south of downtown--easy to get to by metro/bus and cab. It's a neat place to poke around, step into a few cafes and bars, watch the street performers in the central plaza, and just take in the place.Recommended for:

A beautiful, upscale, outlying suburb of the Capital. This was where the Aztec ruling class took their weekends from the smoggy downtown. (even 500 years ago!) Buses, taxis and even rapid rail all go out there. Tree-lined streets, 2 large plazas joined together, ringed by colonial cathedrals, halls and residences. There is a French population, from Maximillian's time, and there are some excellent French eateries and pastry shoppes. This is where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived; her museum is nearby. The air is refreshing here compared to the more developed Centro. There is a Saturday and Wednesday Market that features clean, fresh groceries, as well as very affordable, reputable (clean), food vendors. Crepes, tortas, tamales all sorts of savory hand-food; VERY inexpansive. You can sit outside and nurse some cafe con leche and marvel in the extravagent foot traffic. For safe fun at night,
stay downtown in the Zona Rosa.Recommended for:

El barrio de Coyoacan es uno de los más emblemáticos de la Ciudad de México. Su construcción comenzó poco después de la llegada de los Españoles a México así que la arquitectura de época Colonial se mantiene en la mayoría de sus edificios. Magnífico lugar para conocer sobretodo por los museos, galerías, restaurantes y heladerías que hay en sus alrededores, sin dejar de mencionar su tradicional mercado.

One of the loveliest parts of Mexico City. Traditional colonial neighbourhood with the focus of activity located near a bustling green central plaza. Lots to do including a a large selection of restaurants and bars.
