Tulum Tranquility

While there are a host of activities available in Tulum (kite boarding, yoga, spas, shopping, etc.), if you’re anything like us, you might prefer the super laid-back approach.

A typical day in paradise: Morning would find us seaside on the terrace sipping cappuccinos, then on to breakfast, sun and swimming. Come noon, we’d head to the Coqui Coqui restaurant for some of the most delicious ceviche, shrimp tacos, and other Mexican inspired cuisine. Afterwards, more sun, strolling along the beach, relaxing, and swimming right up ’till sunset. A pre-dinner bottle of Mexican Tempranillo wine on the terrace would smooth the way for a soak in our tub for two back at the room, (Coqui Coqui provides some rather superb bath products!), before venturing out to one of Tulum’s many fine restaurants. One spot that stands out in particular is Hartwood. Located across the street from Coqui Coqui (on the jungle side), their menu is an innovative take on Mexican style cuisine, and produced from the the best of the best local ingredients.

Sated, we’d head back to Coqui Coqui to enjoy a bit of reading before slipping into one of those deep and restorative slumbers one craves and yet so rarely gets back in the big apple.

Needless to say, the luxurious simplicity and leisurely pace at Coqui Coqui is entirely destressing; the absolutely perfect antidote to our winter-in-the-city malaise.

I’m captured here in front of one of the gorgeous Coqui Coqui Mayanesque walls, admiring the sea before dinner. I’m sporting a Gucci white cotton safari jacket, Tom Ford brown and pale pink cotton floral shirt, pale pink silk pants and brown leather sandles, Gucci python belt and aviator glasses, Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch and my fragrance is Lorenzo Villoresi Iperborea.
