Just steps from an idyllic cove, Boca Chica is a grand addition to Acapulco's new era. Located in the district of Caleta, the 36-room hotel was constructed in the late 1950's next to the glamorous Club de Yates and the famed Los Flamingos Hotel. Today, the vintage exterior looks like it's straight out of a mid-century movie set, but inside, the reinvigorated interior has been chicly remodeled by designers Frida Escobedo and José Rojas. Vintage pieces were curated by Mexican contemporary artist Claudia Fernández, and the spacious, tropically-designed rooms come with large hammocks, outdoor living rooms, and private gardens. Guests can venture downstairs to get a massage, chill out with a frozen margarita at the popular in-house disco, hang out on a pool terrace, or order 24-hour sushi room service. Welcome back, Acapulco. You've still got it.

For Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job—it’s a passion that drove these two Mexican entrepreneurs from citrus farming and investment banking to boutique hospitality. “Even if we’re successful at something, we don’t repeat it,” Couturier says. “We like this sense of passion and audacity.” Their Grupo Habita collection has grown to include very diverse properties, including 13 Design Hotels™ member hotels across Mexico and the U.S. Ambitious, fun-loving and well-traveled, the dynamic duo was awarded ‘Team of the Year 2011’ by FIZZZ Magazine.
