    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Museo Frida Kahlo, Calle Londres 247 Col. Del Carmen, Mexico City 04100 Mexico

    Stop At: Avenida Coyoacan No. 2000, Mexico City 03103 Mexico

    Walk Coyoacán in the mornings with a good coffee and feel the tranquility and magic of its environment; Walk it at noon or in the afternoon and you will observe its artistic and popular colors, or revisit it at night and enjoy its sounds, its music, the exclusivity of its corners, the charm of its streets, alleys and emblematic places, surrounded by colonial houses, cultural centers, restaurants, bookstores, galleries and craft houses.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Floating Gardens of Xochimilco, Southern neighborhood of Xochimilco, Mexico City Mexico

    This working-class neighborhood in southern Mexico City gives way to the famous canals of Xochimilco, the last remnants of an enormous system to transport water that the Aztecs built.

You can also visit the disturbing and supposedly cursed Isla de las Muñecas.

    If you love Frida this is a must do. Get there early or make your reservations in advance. We took a Viator tour which put us in the front of the line. They also took us to the University and down the canals. Great tour.
