Coyoacán is one of our favourite local neighbourhoods, and to experience life like a Chilango there’s nowhere better to explore! This district, whose name means ‘place of the coyotes’ was once a rural village, and to this day feels like a unique enclave that’s stayed true to its alternative roots. Explore the neighbourhood with a local by your side and soak up its fiercely independent spirit, progressive attitude and artistic credentials, getting a glimpse of local life in this bohemian community. Discover the colourful streets, colonial era architecture, artisanal markets and neighbourhood coffee shops and get an authentic taste of life in one the city’s most creative neighbourhoods.

The locals here love to hang out outdoors - from the leafy squares, parks and cafes where the tables spill out onto the streets, you’re spoiled for choice, so soak up the community spirit and do like the locals do, picking a spot to chat with friends or just people watch. 

Soak up the vibrant culture and see local musicians playing in the streets or if you’re lucky to see the locals celebrating their artistic heritage through dance and musical performances in one of the many parks.

Discover CDMX’s exciting street food culture and try some delicious dishes that are recommended by your host, or head to one of the areas many incredible restaurants that your local recommend where you can try the authentic local cuisine.
