Set on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, Coqui Coqui Tulum is a boutique beachfront hotel that has us itching to skip the border. With seven rooms, a small shop and a perfumerie, the hotel has an exclusive vibe that surprisingly isn’t reflected in its price. A quick look on Mr & Mrs Smith tells us that rooms start at just $200. The property has been designed with its environment in mind. Cream-coloured stone allows the hotel to blend in amongst ancient Mayan ruins, lush tropical palms, clear aqua water and white powdery sand. So when do we leave?
