What You Can Expect
Stop to admire Coyoacán’s 16th-century mansions and visit the church of San Juan Bautista, one of the oldest churches in Mexico City. Step inside to see impressive paintings and chapels, then continue your exploration of this vibrant neighborhood with a stop at a local crafts fair, where you can sample a cup of traditional coffee (own expense).
Next, visit the Frida Kahlo Museum, known as La Casa Azul (‘the Blue House’), and learn about the turbulent and colorful life of this world-famous artist. See where Frida Kahlo lived with her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera, and examples of her iconic artwork.
Your tour then takes you to the neighborhood of San Angel to visit the Ex-Convento del Carmen, where Mexico City’s only mummified bodies were laid to rest. Admire the church’s three tiled domes, explore the former monastery grounds and visit the museum.
Enjoy free time for shopping and lunch (own expense) in the Saturday bazaar, where a variety of Mexican crafts can be purchased. In the afternoon, enjoy a visit to the Diego Rivera-Anahuacalli Museum, designed by Rivera to house his vast collection of pre-Columbian artifacts.
Your neighborhoods tour ends with return transfer to your Mexico City hotel.
Love it! The family was so excited to see Frida's blue house, and a special treat we had enough time to stop by Diego Studio home (this is not part of the tour), we all paid the museum price to enter the studio. Wonderful tour.
I highly recommend the tour for people who would like to leave the navigation of the city to someone elso. Our guide was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. The appreciation for his Mexican heritage really showed through his informative interpretation of both sites. I would recommend more time for free exploration of both sites. This would have made the experience feel less rushed.
