TOURS IN MEXICO CITY
ENJOY THE CITY!
“Mexico City tours and
also tours to cities nearby,
which are very touristic magical towns.”
COYOACÁN, FRIDA KAHLO
This is one of our most colorful tours not only for visiting the famous "Casa Azul" and then see some of
the works by the artist Frida Kahlo, but also because of the majestic architecture of the university,
the landscape and picturesque colonial Coyoacan and the colors of Xochimilco, well, the name says it all ... "place of flowers".
First stop in Coyoacán, his name in Nahuatl means "place of those who have coyotes", the history of this place dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Here Hernán Cortés prepare his strategy of war for the conquest of the Aztecs, so Coyoacán became one of the first colonial settlements, which still preserves its style as well as the its atmosphere that for years has characterized and differentiated from the center of the city. Here are located the National Arts Centre, the National School of Music, the National School of Restoration, and perhaps it would be enough to mention that in Coyoacán lies the Ciudad Universitaria, UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico).
Later in our trip we go to Jardín Hidalgo, which is the center of Coyoacan, we will walk around while the guide tell us about the history of its streets and buildings where we will find different characters, food stands and activities typical of Mexico. And the last place to visit in Coyoacán is the Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as the "La Casa Azul” ( the Blue House). To visit this museum you will have free time (about an hour) for getting into Frida´s universe through her paintings and personal belongings.
We continue our journey south of the city to one of the preferred places of Frida Kahlo, Xochimilco. "The place of flowers", this is the meaning of this word in Nahuatl, so the story begins many years ago in ancient Mexico.
During our ride on the punt we can taste different dishes and drinks, such as mole, mixiotes, roasted corn, quesadillas, tacos, barbecue, carnitas, pulque, micheladas and much more. While the journey can be accompanied with live Mexican music of mariachi, marimba, trios northerners, Huapangueros, or a recorder encouraging the celebration of families who choose to celebrate their birthdays here, baptisms, weddings, or wedding or simply celebrate the like to have a good time.
