Metro Coyuya is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2]

Metro Coyuya is on Line 8, between Metro Santa Anita and Metro Iztacalco.[1][2] It is located in the Iztacalco borough, in the eastern portion of the Mexican Federal District, and serves the Colonia Tlazintla district and neighbourhoods surrounding Avenida Coyuya, Avenida Francisco del Paso y Troncoso (eje 3-Ote), and Avenida Plutarco Elías Calles (eje 4-Sur).[1] A surface station, it was first opened to public passenger traffic on 20 July 1994.[3]

The station logo depicts the ankle of an Aztec dancer festooned with a cuff-rattle made from nutshells – a pre-Hispanic musical instrument known by the Spanish name cascabel.[1][2] "Coyuya" is a Nahuatl toponym that means "place where cascabeles are made".[1]
