Your tour start at Coyoacan. Its name originates from the Nahuatl language and means “place of those who have coyotes”. Since more than 2500 years this place is inhabited by different civilizations. Coyoacan has a special charm because of its multiple artists and foreigners which inhabited the village and made it alternative to the rest of Mexico City. Today Coyoacan is known for its cultural and intellectual development because of art galleries and renowned art and music schools.
In Coyoacan you will first visit the UNAM. This university exists since around 60 years but its building was influenced by a lot of famous Mexican architects and artists. This is why the university is today part of the UNESCO world heritage since 2007.
After that you will get to the center of Coyoacan where your guide will give you local insights about the buildings, the streets, the inhabitants, the food and typical activities.
Your last stop in Coyoacan will be the Museum of Frida Kahlo also known as “Casa Azul” (“Blue House”). You will have free time to see the museum and discover how she lived, how she suffered and how she created world known artwork.
After enjoying Coyoacan and its magic you will head for Xochimilco, which means in the ancient language Nahuatl “the place of flowers”. The place is one of Mexico City´s last remainder of the pre-hispanic lake, which occupied mostly the whole area of the city. Xochimilco is today a place to relax not only for Mexicans but also for international visitors. You will enter a little boat, called Trajinera, and will be transported along the canals of the area for around one hour. If you want you can try typical plates and drinks like Mole, Mixiotes, Maíz asado, Quesadillas, Tacos, Barbacoas, Carnitas, Pulque, Micheladas and a lot more. Besides typical musicians can pass your way like Marimba players, Mariachis, Huapangueros etc.
