Coqui Coqui is a small, 5-room bohemian chic boutique hotel on the beach in Tulum, Mexico. Former hippie outpost Tulum has become one of the most stylish and high-end beach destinations in Mexico. The coconut trees and the white sand beach of Tulum was the inspiration for the entire Coqui Coqui experience.
