Metro Xola ([ˈme·tɾo·ˈʃo·la]) is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system.[1][2] 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.[1] It is a surface station.

The station logo shows a coconut palm tree.[1] The name comes from the 19th century "Xola" hacienda that existed in the current site of the station.[1] 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.[3]
