We will stroll through these two former villages now enveloped by the city yet still maintaining their small town atmosphere. If our tour is on Saturday, we will begin with the Bazar del sábado (the Saturday arts and crafts market) in the Plaza San Jacinto. From there we will proceed to other colonial and contemporary sites in both colonias, including the Convento del Carmen, the food, vegetable and flower markets. Like San Ángel, Coyoacán is a delight to explore, with two lovely plazas graced by vendors of ice cream, toys and folk art, as well as musicians, bookstores, and restaurants.

Meet up location: At your hotel
End location: At the closest tourism taxi stand. This tour is presented this way for the traveler who has a tight schedule (two or three days), but actually is very long and some visitors may need a cab. The tour can be broken up in two halves, having lunch in between. (I strongly recommend the San Angel Inn restaurant for a meal.)
Duration: 5 hours
Weather or traffic could affect the duration of the tour, but I will look for alternatives in case that happens

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
