Tour description

Explore Coyoacán, a colorful neighborhood in Mexico City known for having been one of the many places of residence for the conqueror Hernán Cortés as well as for world-renowned artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and León Trotsky, among other historical figures.

Join the Free Coyoacán Tour to witness a mosaic-like environment full of flavor and tradition away from the hustle and bustle of the capital! Browse the Coyoacán market, where locals shop for fresh products, artisan sweets, and even superstitious items commonly used for ritualistic purposes.

Hear about Frida and Diego's iconic relationship and how they became some of Mexico's most iconic artists while standing outside Frida Kahlo's famous Blue House, currently a museum. Visit eminent cafes, small art galleries, artisan shops, parks, and historic palaces while listening to incredible stories about Coyoacán, including mystical tales and legends alongside a local guide!

*Coyoacan is in the south of Mexico City, so guests staying in the Historical Center, La Roma, Doctores or Condesa areas will need around 30 minutes to arrive to Coyoacan. Most guests use private taxi options since public transit options are not so convenient in Coyoacan.

The tour with Gus was amazing. Me and my friend were lucky enough to be the only two people on the tour that day, so we enjoyed a very personal experience. Gus was extremely friendly, passionate and knowledgeable about the neighbourhood of Coyoacán. We got an insight into the history and culture of Coyoacán, as well as aspects of modern-day life there. The pace of the tour was perfect and Gus was extremely informative but struck a perfect balance and did not overload us with information. His food recommendations were also top-notch! We can't recommend this tour highly enough, it was a highlight of our time in Mexico City! Thank you, Gus :)
