Create an itinerary including Coyoacan
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.

  • We did a four hour bike tour through the streets here. We stopped at some of the small parks and a couple of the churches. The oldest continuously active church in Mexico City is at one of these...

  • Very cool neighborhood. If you want to do the Freida museum nearby you will need to purchase tickets a day or two in advanced. Visit the Mercado Coyoacán too.
  • Beautiful place let's not let the current mayor @sheinbaum ruin it by staffing army around it so she can look like a strong leader. The fountain is beautiful and the families who.come.visit it on a daily basis shows the strength of the people.
