The Basics

Beloved by locals and visitors alike, Coyoacán’s historic center (aka Villa Coyoacán) is easy to explore on foot in as little as half a day. Stroll the cobblestone streets before relaxing in one of the many pretty plazas; take a walking tour to learn about the pre-Hispanic and colonial history of the district; or uncover Frida Kahlo’s artistic legacy.

Alternatively, combine a visit to Coyoacán with stops in Xochimilco, University City, or Teotihuacán. And don’t miss the trio of popular house-museums, once occupied by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Leon Trotsky, respectively.

Xochimilco, Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo Museum Tour
Good tour and experience. Enjoyed the tour to the University, Xochimilco and Coyoacan. The stop to the souvenir store could have been avoided and been substituted into one of the places we visited. Kudos to Kevin and his team!

I could have done without the murals and gone straight to Xochilmo and then Casa Azul. There was a little confusion about entrance tickets to Casa Azul. Other than that, we had a great time.

We enjoyed our tour, covering Mexican culture and heritage. Our guide and driver were very good. Everything was as expected. Learned quite a bit of culture and about family traditions. Nice to have a private guide during our time in Mexico City.

Xochimilco, Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo Museum Tour
Such a fun trip. The group spoke Spanish as a whole so Alexa had to share the stories and facts in Spanish (and English for me). I felt she made sure I was understanding things along the way. There was ample time at each of the activities (though of course who wouldn’t want to stay longer floating on the water drinking tequila and cervesa or sitting longer in Frida & Diego’s courtyard filled with beautiful art, artifacts and color). I would absolutely recommend this tour and Alexa.

Explore Frida Kahlo’s Coyoacán

Perhaps Coyoacán’s most well-known former resident, Frida Kahlo was born and raised in the district, and died there too. Wander around La Casa Azul and the Frida Kahlo Museum—the artist’s former home—before lunching on tostadas at Coyoacán Market. Finally, snap a photo with Frida at the Casa de Cultura Jesús Reyes Heroles. For more insight into Frida’s life and work, opt for a Frida-themed tour of the area.
