Coyoacán is a neighborhood that is located to the south of the city, and we recommend that you dedicate an entire day to visit it. It is a residential area that offers samples of street art, colonial streets and a special bohemian atmosphere that invites you to discover every corner. There you can visit the Blue House, a building where the painters Frida and Diego lived, now converted into a beautiful museum.
