Le Bazaar is the outcome of two best friends getting together to curate,
handpick and match every unique item of this chic beach-essential inspired boutique. Le Bazaar offers selected items from around the world for fashion lovers. Clothing, accessories, jewelry & gifts.
Casa Cat Ba also recommends these not-to-be-missed shops, located in the Yucatan cities of Merida and Valladolid.
Located in Merida, Casa T’HO is a concept house formed by nine boutiques and a restaurant which open its doors to a traditional central courtyard, characteristic of architecture of the traditional Yucatecan houses. This mansion of the early XIX Century, eclectic in its style and architecture, considered heritage and an architectural monument of the City is located on the most famous street of Merida, Paseo de Montejo. You will find there emblematic fashion and design Mexican brands like La Troupe, fair-trade clothes line or Nuno Tulum, bags and housewares inspired by the jungle of Tulum.
Coqui Coqui Perfumeria
Located in Valladolid, a city which has an important history that’s been grounded in the art of perfume making for many years, Coqui Coqui’s flagship perfumery is housed within a XVI century building and situated on Calzada de Los Frailes, one of the most beautiful streets in Valladolid that’s only few blocks away from the Convent of San Bernardino de Siena. A place not to be missed and enchanting fragrances that you will never forget.

Our Eco-Responsible Engagement
We are trying to limit our impact on the island’s ecological heritage.
Also, we do not use plastic bottles and invite you to fill your jars at the drinking water dispenser that you will find in the lobby or in your room.
The Yucatan Senses toiletries we offer are locally produced, organic and not tested on animals. The bottles are not thrown away but filled regularly.
Because we believe in the local economy, we only buy from the local stores: from the grocery stores and the small market in the village of Holbox.
