Coanacochtzin (died 1525) was the seventh tlatoani (ruler) of Texcoco.

One of Nezahualpilli's sons, he succeeded to throne after the death of his half-brother Cacama in 1520.

In 1524 Hernán Cortés took Coanacochtzin and many other indigenous rulers with him on his expedition to Honduras. In 1525, at Campeche, Coanacochtzin was executed along with Cuauhtemoc, the tlatoani of Tenochtitlan.

After his death Ixtlilxochitl II, another of Coanacochtzin's half-brothers, was made tlatoani of Texcoco by the Spanish.
