Metro Xola ([ˈme·tɾo·ˈʃo·la]) is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system. It is located in the Colonia Moderna and Colonia Alamos districts of the Benito Juárez borough of Mexico City, directly south of the city centre on Calzada de Tlalpan. It is a surface station.
The station logo shows a coconut palm tree. The name comes from the 19th century "Xola" hacienda that existed in the current site of the station. The hacienda housed an enormous specimen of coconut palm tree, of which some still stand on the sidewalk of the nearby Xola Avenue. The station opened on 1 August 1970.
