Coyoacan was described to me by one local as the SoHo of Mexico City. Very bohemian! It was also the city that housed such artists as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. We went to tour their house the day we were there, but it was closed. Leon Trotsky also lived here for a season when he was exiled from the Soviet Union by Stalin. There is a main square/jardin that is highlighted by a cathedral, plus shopping on every street. Local artisans and musicians also migrate to this city.
