One of the prettiest shops – and there are a few – in Merida, Yucatan’s nearly 500 year old city, is Coqui Coqui. Selling scented candles, soap and perfumes as well as a few nicely designed leather and fiber articles, the shop is a tiny gem of deliciousness. Stop for a cup if tea in the rear tea room, a welcome respite from the intense sun and often high humidity. Created by the same folks who have tiny lodgings of the same name scattered throughout the region (the Coqui Coqui in Tulum being the most written about), this is a charming store and story in a fabled land.
