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.

Experience highlights

  • 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

MEXICO CITY, EAT LIKE A LOCAL IN CDMX: STREET FOOD EXPERIENCE

Went places we wouldn’t dare go alone!

The tour with John was excellent, we particularly enjoyed going to the pulque bar where we wouldn’t have dared go to without a guide. Would highly recommend. Hope one day John will come to England so we can teach him to strawpeedo VKs. Good luck with the future. Andy and Annie

MEXICO CITY, HALF DAY IN MEXICO CITY WITH A LOCAL

May 2019

Great time with John!

My partner had a lovely time with John and I thought he did a great job ensuring we saw a great deal of the city for our first time there. I gave a few requests, I wanted to see the Roma house, Zocalo, and try Pulque and John devised a great tour that got me a bunch of filming locations from Roma, some delicious Tacos and Pulque and some goregous buildings in the city that I otherwise would have not seen. He was friendly and helpful the entire time. I was even more impressed that he made a point to take us all the way back to our hotel at the end of the tour even though it was out of the way for him. I loved my city unscripted tour and thought John was great!

MEXICO CITY, MUST SEE MEXICO CITY WITH A LOCAL

March 2019

Knowledgable and Enthusiastic Mexico City Overview

Roberto was a great guide to introduce us to the layout and history of Mexico City. He was able to point us to all sorts of interesting places we never would have found by wandering on our own. His background in archaeology made him an appreciated authority on cultural and historical context. He has a genuine love for the subject and was great at inspiring interest and appreciation in our group!
