Coyoacan is a tranquil residential delegación, once a suburb of Mexico City, but now very much part of the urban metropolis. Once home to Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, it is both cosmopolitan and very Mexican. At the center are a group of plazas, where you will find lovely colonial churches, playful fountains, charming restaurants, shaded by palm trees.
The historic center of Coyoacan is compact and walkable, bordered on the north by Avenida Rio Churubusco, to the west by the Viveros de Coyoacan (a large public park/garden), the south by Avenida Miguel Angel de Quevedo, and the east by Avenida Division del Norte. The official boundaries of the delegación are vast, including the entire UNAM main campus to the southwest and verging on Xochimilco in the southeast.
