Connecting jungle and beach, a labyrinth of paths wind through the grounds at this elegant Mayan-themed hotel, where butterflies and parrots fly and the scent of flowers fills the air. Rooms, which have private terraces, are filled with whimsical decorative items and original artwork. The king-size beds are draped in mosquito netting, and there are small stereos for each room but no TVs. Daily breakfast is included à la carte, and there are plenty of food-focused activities
like cooking classes, tequila tastings and themed dinners.
