What you’ll do

Follow one of our Mexico City hosts through the creative neighborhood of Coyoacán, former home of world-renowned artist Frida Kahlo.

Now, she’d hardly have lived here if it were an average, run of the mill neighborhood, would she? No.

So, explore Coyoacán (aptly named after the mischievous coyote) and discover La Casa Azul (Frida’s former home), shady squares, exotic markets, decadent street food stalls and purple jacaranda-lined avenues.

Coyoacán is a place for artists, bohemians and cultural lovers of every description!

Do as the locals do, and hang about outdoors, people-watching, snacking, enjoying the live music and absorbing the progressive spirit of this bohemian neighborhood.

You may even catch people dancing in the streets! If you’re feeling brave, throw back tequila and join them. Okay, obviously not if it’s early in the morning, but then again, you’re on holiday.

Highlights & what to expect

  • Explore one of Mexico City’s coolest neighborhoods; the bohemian, colorful Coyoacán - named after the wily coyote!

  • Discover the former home of Frida Kahlo and explore the area where she used to live

  • Browse exotic markets, pick up some snacks like fresh mango with chilli or tamales

  • Stroll along the jacaranda-lined streets and relax in leafy parks and squares - life here is lived on the streets, and if you can’t beat them, join them!

  • People watch with your host (a local past-time and one which is even better with one of those snacks)

  • Catch some live music and even dancing in the streets, or head to a local cafe
