Coyoacan, a former village and now one of the 16 boroughs of Mexico City, is a historic center. It is a popular place to visit, especially on weekends, because many of the original layouts, plazas and narrow streets have been preserved and date from the 16th to the early 20th centuries.

The Coyoacan neighborhood gies you a good idea of rural-style and more colonial areas of Mexico. Careful it gets very crowded (too much for my taste) on weekends, but it has a very authentic feel to it. Full of market stalls, restaurants, cantinas, churro vendors...More

I was told this was the second oldest church in the Americas. Don't know but it is beautiful. The market is nothing special, filled with a lot of cheap goods.

You get a taste of a small Mexican town and how Frida lived her life. All within walking distance of rhe Frida museum. Two nice markets, one local produce, and one local craft. A town square, and the museums.

Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”)
you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will
transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the
brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers
such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo
seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you
can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood
reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes

I agree with the previous response. I feel safest going by Uber rather than a taxi. For San Miguel Allende I would book a driver or take a Bus.
