Metro Nativitas is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system. It is located in the Colonia Nativitas and Colonia Lago neighborhoods of Benito Juárez borough of Mexico City, directly south of the city centre on Calzada de Tlalpan. It is a surface station.
The station logo depicts a trajinera – a type of small punt-style boat, still used today in the canals of Xochimilco. The name Nativitas refers to a lake that formerly existed here, on which the inhabitants farmed on a network of artificial islands known as chinampas. The name later referred to a small villa built in the outskirts of Mexico City during the first half of the 20th century. The station opened on 1 August 1970.
