Coyoacán is one of the 16 delegationes (or areas) into which Mexico's Federal District is divided. Coyoacán also is used to refer to the neighborhood at the heart of the area. The name Coyoacán comes from Nahuatl Coyohuacan, meaning "place where they have coyotes".
with a lively bohemian and artistic culture as well as bookstores, cafés, and clubs.
It was home to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and also to Leon Trotsky, and the houses they lived in are now both museums. Hernan Cortes made his residence there.

Jardín Centenario is one of the two busy squares in Coyoacán where, on weekends, there's a street market where handicraft and local stuff are sold. At the centre of this square, there's the fountain depicting the drinking coyotes that gave the town its name.
