Famously known as the birthplace and hometown of Frida Kahlo, Coyoacán is a charming neighborhood outside the historic city center of Mexico City.
Attracting international students and artistic bohemians, Coyoacán is littered with trendy cafes, quirky art museums, and plenty of outdoor plazas perfect for spending the afternoon people watching.
- Museo Frida Kahlo was once the home of famous artist Frida Kahla but is now a museum housed in a bright, indigo blue building that you can’t take your eyes off. The house has been preserved since it was occupied by Frida, but also has a rotating exhibit of galleries and displays.
- Mercado de Coyoacán is a bustling weekend market that takes place in Plaza Hidalgo. You’ll find everything from vintage clothing to crafts, which you can haggle down the price of before purchasing. There are also live dance performances and music throughout the day.
- Cineteca Nacional is a movie theater dedicated to only showing classic Mexican films. It’s also one of the main locations for a number of film festivals.
