There’s just enough space for two at this cabin in the Yucatán jungle, which stands out from the trees thanks to its pastel pink walls.
The one-bedroom Mexican holiday home is designed as a contemporary take on the area’s traditional construction techniques and was built using local materials. Casita Jabín is laid out as a pair of stacked cubes, with a living room and outdoor plunge pool downstairs, and a master bedroom on the top floor.
Guests can open the cabin’s wooden shutters in the morning, and enjoy birdsong and a view over the tree canopy. There’s also an open-air shower room which the owner promises will be ‘the best shower of your life’.
The couple’s retreat – available via Airbnb from £68 per night – is in a secluded part of the jungle; however, the city of Valladolid is a 10-minute drive away. There are a few essentials already stocked in the kitchen, including local honey, fresh coffee and a selection of hot sauces.
