Things to do Free History & Food Tour of Coyoacan, Mexico City

Meet your guide at a starting point and go to learn about important historical events, personalities, and legends behind the most iconic landmarks of the Coyoacan district in Mexico City. Translated from Nahuatl as “The Place of Coyotes”, this picturesque historic neighborhood of Mexico City was Hernan Cortez’s headquarters after the fall of the Aztec Empire. Coyoacan has a vivid, even festive appearance with narrow colonial-time streets, ubiquitous cozy cafes, and a lively atmosphere. Once home to Leon Trotsky and Frida Kahlo (whose homes are captivating museums now), it has a noticeable alternative vibe, especially on weekends, when street musicians, artists, and craft markets attract large but relaxed crowds from parts of Mexico City. The leafy Jardín Centenario park sits at the center of bohemian Coyoacán, known for its cobblestone streets and colonial architecture. The bright-blue Museo de Frida Kahlo, showcasing her life and work, is here, as are the well-preserved former home of Leon Trotsky, art galleries, and colorful artisan markets. Upscale sidewalk cafes sit side by side with laid-back ice cream parlors along the tree-lined streets.
