COQUI COQUI MERIDA
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.
‘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.’

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.
