We'll visit the Blue House, today Frida Kahlo's museum, where the most famous and valued Mexican painter was born, grew up and lived the major part of her life.

Learn about the daily life in Coyoacan visiting its famous Market and "Plaza Hidalgo" where you can see the magnificent San Juan Bautista church. At the nearby San Angel, a picturesque residential zone, we'll stroll around the charming San Jacinto Plaza, wander the cobbled streets and visit Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo's House-Studio.

Monica listened to what we wanted to do and made it happen for us. Our tour of the Frida Kahlo Museum, the Museo Estudio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, lunch at San Angel Inn, and shopping at the Plaza San Jacinto made a perfect day. Thanks, Deena.
