En route to our destination we will visit University City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for it's architecture and murals painted by some of the cities most famous artists including Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
Coyoacan is a local favorite hang out. This is the perfect place to people watch, and the perfect place to indulge in an afternoon coffee with perhaps the best churro in the city. Just ask your guide, he'll know where to take you. Take time to explore the Bazaar where you will get an introduction to street food. If you're feeling brave try grasshoppers - a favorite snack!
We'll also be sure to visit Frida Kahlo's Blue House, her birthplace and now a museum. Frida Kahlo is known for her paintings of herself, saying "I paint myself because I am the subject I know best".
