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.

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

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.

Taxis and Uber are the best way to travel in Mexico city. My friends and I actually prefer Uber because it is safer. Enjoy! I love that city!
