"Spend the day at Coyoacan" Coyoacan Tip by AprilT

Coyoacan, Mexico City: 19 reviews and 36 photos

Coyoacan has a huge shopping area where you can buy many different types of souvenirs and handmade crafts and paintings. I love it here. It's like a little hippie town where almost every vendor has incense, pachouli, and something made from hemp. Throughout the day, there are shows put on, that's what this is a picture of. There are also lots of cafes and restaurants.
Coyoacan is also where Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo lived. You can visit the Frida Kahlo museum and take a walk through her house and garden. Tickets are only about $3.00 per person. No cameras are allowed though, until you walk through the entire house. You can only take pictures of the garden.
I wish I had more pictures, but this is defintely a place you must visit.
