Located just a few steps away from Tulum city center and 10 minutes to the white sand beaches, 16TULUM was designed to capture the charm and quiet of Tulum’s tropical forest. The design villa is a rare combination of eco-chic luxury and minimalist design, juxtaposing the polished concrete floors and white walls with organic elements of stone walls, wood furniture, and cactus gardens.




A restaurant bar in the tropical jungle of Tulum, Mexico. Serving fresh, seasonal cuisine using local Mexican ingredients.


Arca’s focus is on Yucatán ingredients, resulting in Mexi-Cal cuisine—think farm-to-table starters like charred snap peas and grilled asparagus; inventive cocktails like El Solar that blends mezcal, hibiscus, chipotle syrup and smoked ancho chili rum; and homemade sourdough bread so good it sells out by 9 p.m. The simple wood and candlelight environment is elegant without being pretentious.



interior & travel



It’s more of a luxurious private residence than a hotel, this beautiful single suite lies above the Coqui Coqui boutique in the heart of Mérida’s historical centre. Vintage mirrors, chandeliers and original tiled floors create a sense of ornate glamour, whilst a private rooftop pool, three baths and a balcony add to the luxury. Breakfast is served in the boutique’s cafe, while a small one-room spa also offers treatments.

569.-Coqui-Coqui-Mé‘Staying at Coqui Coqui Merida is like living in a magical realist novel. Everything smells faintly of tobacco and orange blossoms; gilded mirrors and dramatic velvet drapes line the walls of the spacious solo suite, antique glass chandeliers hang from the ceilings. The turn-of-the-century building’s original marble tiled floors are cool under your feet, a respite from the intense sun outside, and a wrought-iron bed draped in white linen revels in the soft light that streams through floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto a balcony over the tropical, plant-filled interior courtyard.’ coqui-merida-3

Wood-fired restaurant rooted in the ingredients of Mundo Maya. On a jungle road along the Caribbean Sea in Tulum Mexico.

The intro on the website really tells you all you need to know:

By necessity, we consider sustainability first and foremost in all our work and in every decision at the restaurant. Solar panels, power our lights and music and every other little thing that keeps the restaurant running. We break down our waste with zero carbon footprint, creating 100 percent organic compost that is used in regenerating the mangrove environment and interior farming.

All cooking is done by open fire within our hand made wood burning oven and grill. Every single ingredient that we touch is deeply rooted within Mundo Maya.

All fish are properly spear hunted within the Caribbean , we use only sustainable fishing methods to ensure a thriving and healthy aquatic life. Proper Marine management is our first concern.

We harvest our colorful, exotic produce from communal Mayan farms called Milpas where we work with the Mayan community in all aspects of our education of organic polyfarming.
