This visit in one word would be: "colors"; the three points we will visit are full of them, and they are from different stages in the history of Mexico. The Aztec tribe or Nahuas, split in seven tribes; the Mexicas stablished. The Aztec tribe or Nahuas, split in seven tribes; Tepanecas in Coyoacan and the Xochimilcas obviously in Xochi, so these three neighborhoods have their own traditions, and since the 40’s became part of Mexico City.
Check out what we are going to do.

Coyoacan: the first town hall of the Anahuac lake basin (now Mexico City`s Valley) has a deep history in the conformation of the New Spain (Mexico), being a Tepaneca kingdom and after the conquer a Franciscan-Dominican village with a lot of soul, with its 16th-century houses, churches and museums where it is located, among others, the Blue House, residence in which Frida Kahlo was born. Frida Kahlo was an important Mexican artist mainly because she fought for equality rights in a machista Society even though she experienced physical pain due to polio and a terrible vehicular accident. Diego Rivera and Frida used to lived in this house; we will spend hour and a half in the museum.
Xochimilco, a neighborhood that gives us a small example of what pre-Columbian cities were like with their Chinampero system; that is to say of artificial islands that make it a pleasant place to take a boat and enjoy Mexican folklore: mariachis, marimba, tequila and of course its colors. We can eat typical food on the boat, enjoy white herons flying around and admiring the flower markets.
Finally we will visit Ciudad Universitaria where we will find buildings with murals of important Mexican muralists (David Alfaro Siqueiros, Juan O´gorman) which they will certainly astonished you for their beauty and meaning.
This is more than a city like Mexico can offer.
