Coqui Coqui Tulum is in our top five hotels.  So aesthetically beautiful and Bohemian on a perfect  white sand beach with crystalline Caribbean sea-front and an aroma of orange blossom.  It is just tough to top.

Many years ago Argentinian model Nico Millville found himself on the no-longer-a-secret Boca Paila Tulum road  – and fell in love with the area.  Here he planted roots and started the Coqui Coqui Hotels as a small enterprise and a place to promote his beautiful fragrance line (of the same name).  Rumor has it, the inspiration for the fragrance line came to Nico from a book dated to colonial times.  Within  Franciscan monks had documented the formulas of the perfumes, made from local flowers, that were sent back to the Queen of Spain.

Soon after Nico began, he was joined by Francesca Bonato, an Italian accessory designer, and the Coqui Coqui world bloomed.  Their combined design aesthetic found a wonderful place to grow in the hotels and and the chic products carried therein.

At check in, you are greeted with a gift bag containing the their  beautifully crafted amenities.  Including tobacco cologne, orange blossom bath oils, as well as our all-time favorite mosquito repellent  – that actually works and smells singularly wonderful.  (Hint: Even if you can’t make it to the hotel you can always buy via net-a-porter)

The hotel’s rooms, located in the back building, are larger and comfortable. Each with with partial ocean view and amazing interiors.  Large windows continually bringing in a refreshing Caribbean breeze.  Thankfully there is no AC, or need for any.

We stayed twice in the Jungle suite – once during a major storm.  Despite our desire for sun,  the storm, in that room, along with a few mescal margaritas created one of our most ambient and romantic afternoons.   On our last visit, we stayed at the new Mirador Suite,  located on the top floor, this used to be the Spa in our previous visits, and it also offered a lovely stay.

The local Mexican service is very good, especially Pepo and Mutsi (Hola!)  The reservation process can be a bit bumpy; but persevere – it is worth it!

Side note: We’re sure that by the time you read this the Belgian manager will have departed.  She is an adept and causing stress and does not seem cut out for the hotel business.  She was there for our 2nd and 3rd stays -but that was 2014;  if she is there, just avoid her.

Coqui Coqui is such a perfect blend of chic and  hippy and nature that you will just be thankful you are there!

Like its sister hotel in Tulum, Coqui Coqui Coba holds its’s own separate visual identity.  While we were not lucky enough to stay here, we had a wonderful lunch and rest after our visit to the Coba Archeological City.

The meal was lovely, the coffee satisfying and the ambiance divine.  The photos truly do it justice, Coqui Coqui Coba is a hotel to come if you need to truly escape from your world into another.

Coba Maya City

Quintana Roo, Mexico

Located between Tulum and Chichen Itza, Coba is a very large archeological complex that spans over 80 km².  Luckily, there are bicycle carriages easily hirable to scoot your around the vast area.

Built around two lagoons connect with series of elevated stone roads that reach up to 100 km (62 mi)!  Coba was a teaming city that was abandoned when the Spanish conquered the peninsula – around 1550.  Although some knowledge of the site remained, it was not until the 1920s that scholoraly exploration really began .  The ongoing investigation of several large temple pyramids is active and viewable.

While it was never really a ‘lost’ city , Coba carries that feeling as it rises and dips through the jungle mists.
