Deep within the verdant jungle of the Yucatan Peninsula, you’ll discover the small village of Coba on the banks of a tranquil lake in Quintana Roo, Mexico. This enigmatic heritage location is home to the Coqui Coqui Cobá Papholchac Residence & Spa, which lies at the heart of one of the most important archaeological sites associated with ancient Mayan civilisation. Taking the rich historical significance of the surrounding area into account, the residence was built to highlight the landscapes, natural beauty and traditions of the Mayan culture. The result is Coqui Coqui Coba, a unique hideaway that’s meant to awaken one’s inner explorer and innate sense of adventure, while serving as a true sanctuary for creating moments for peacefulness and serenity.
Inspired by the nearby Mayan ruinas, Coqui Coqui Coba arises out of the jungle like a forgotten mirage, displaying some of the most unique architecture in the region while also perfectly blending into the seemingly preserved natural surroundings. Linked with an enchanting wooden bridge that hangs delicately above, the unique design of Coqui Coqui Coba is comprised of two symmetrical limestone towers that feature outdoor dipping pools, lounge areas, and two suites.

It stanched like copper infused water whenever I take a shower or bath and beware of mosquitoes.
Just wish to say Thank You to Coqui Coqui for the amazing complimentary perfume amenities and cocktails. AP Tips: Remember to bring mosquito repellant as its in the middle of nowhere and stagnant water are common sight. Right in front of the hotel is the Lake Coba, Natural Reserve.
