Metro Viveros / Derechos Humanos (formerly known as Metro Viveros) is a metro station along Line 3 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located between the Álvaro Obregón and Coyoacán boroughs of Mexico City.

The station logo depicts the silhouette of a plant, and the metro station is named after the nearby Viveros de Coyoacán arboretum and nursery (parts of which are a publicly accessible park and a popular area for recreation), founded by engineer Miguel Ángel de Quevedo in the former ranch of Panzacola.[1] The station opened on 30 August 1983.[3]

Metro Viveros / Derechos Humanos serves the Colonia Barrio de Santa Catarina, Florida, and Axotla neighbourhoods, and is mainly used to link with the bus lines on Avenida Universidad.[1]

Inside the station is a mural by artist Jason Schell titled: A Sunday Afternoon Under Mexico City (Una Tarde Dominical Bajo la Ciudad de Mexico).
