Another visit to Coyoacan
It’s been a while since I’ve been in Mexico City and I had to make a stop at one of my favorite places, Coyoacan. For those who haven’t been, it’s a beautiful colonial square in the heart of Mexico City. It’s shady streets, parks and colonial architecture make it a pleasant place for a walk or just to sit on a park bench.
The central square of Coyoacan is a really special place. It’s filled with fountains, cafes and performers. If there was such a thing as a Mexican hippie revival, this is the place. There’s also a vibrant artists quarter where you can purchase many local handmade crafts and works of art. This is not the typical tourist “craft center” these are real artists selling their works.
- Visit a cafe
- Visit Parroquia de San Juán Bautista (the church in the central square)
- Visit the musem of Frida Kahlo
- Vist the musem of Leon Trotsky (for those history buff’s he was Lenin’s right hand man in the Communist Revolution and a key rival of Joesph Stalin. Stalin had him killed right here in Coyoacan)
- Ride the tour bus – for a small fee you can ride a street car like bus all around coyoacan
- Don’t miss the “Coyotes of Coyoacan” , the fountain in the central square.
- Stop at the Artists Center
- Have a coffee at Cafe El Jarocho (it’s famous in Mexico)
