Banish all thoughts of Cancun Spring Break from your mind - a Mexican beach break needn't be about bikini-clad babes and buckets of booze. Offering dreamy Caribbean coastal views, forested interiors and history-steeped Mayan ruins, the idyllic town of Tulum, 75 miles south-west of Cancun's airport, couldn't be further from that teen scene. The coolly casual seven-room Coqui Coqui Tulum hotel mixes whitewashed walls with lashings of stone and wood for a pared-back setting. Canopied beds, hand-molded bath tubs and sunset margaritas make this a must for romantics, with plenty of hammocks for hanging out in style.
