Quick Details

Private Tour From
$245

This is one of our most colorful excursions, not only because of the visit to the famous quarter of Coyoacan but also because of the majestic architecture of the National University of Mexico (UNAM).

The landscapes and the picturesque colonial Coyoacan, and Xochimilco’s colors and sounds… The name speaks for itself: “Place of Flowers.”

The first stop is Coyoacan, which in Nahuatl means “place of those with coyotes”. Next, you will continue down South, to a favorite of Frida Kahlo’s, Xochimilco. The history of this place begins many years ago in ancient Mexico.

The history of this place comes from prehispanic time, it was in this area where the first community centers in the highlands of Mesoamerica developed, for over 2,500 years this place has been changing and evolving, either due to natural causes such as volcanic eruptions or because of human intervention, as the urban area’s expansion.
