Metro Copilco is a station along Line 3 on the Mexico City Metro. Located in the Coyoacán borough, in the south of Mexico City, on Avenida Enríquez Ureña (Eje 10 Sur). It is the penultimate station along the southern portion of Line 3.
The station logo depicts an Olmec representation of a coiled water snake or dragon (symbols of the lightbug, which is also a personification of the God of Water). Copilco means "the place where there are lightbugs" in Nahuatl. The station opened on 30 August 1983.
Above the station's platforms are murals depicting paintings and art from ancient pre-Hispanic cultures, works by famous artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, and Mexican art from José Guadalupe Posada, Diego Rivera and others. This station also has a cultural display.
Many of the passengers are students, headed for the nearby campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Metro Copilco is particularly close to the schools of medicine and dentistry. This station serves the "Copilco Universidad", "Romero de Terreros", "Copilco el Alto" and "Pedregal de Santo Domingo" neighbourhoods, as well as several habitational units (closed groups of high-density residential buildings), such as "Integración Latinoamericana" and "Copilco 300".
