A vacation is an escape from reality and your daily routine. It’s a time to relax, reflect and treat yourself to things you might not normally be able to, like a visit to a luxurious spa. Cancun is home to countless spas, sancutaries where you can take vacation relaxation to a whole other level by indulging in massages, facials, wraps, hydrotherapy, mani/pedis and more.
Many spas in Cancun like Kayanta Spa in the Ritz Carlton and Vassa Spa at Azul Sensatori have an outdoor area where you can get a massage or treatment close to the ocean, or in a tropical garden. Most also feature many services that incorporate ancient Mayan wisdom and traditions and natural substances like herbs. At Le Blanc Spa the 80 minute Kukulcan Mayan Massage is done by two massuses, and the entire massage is actually choreographed and inspired by three animals that were sacred to the Mayans, the jaguar, the snake and the eagle.
Zoetry Paraiso de La Bonita Riviera Maya Spa is worth a visit as it’s home to the first certified Thalassotherapy Spa in North America. Thalassotherapy, or sea water therapy is used in anti-aging regiments, skin care, massage therapy and more. If you’re watching your wallet, Spa Xbalamque in downtown Cancun offers massages and many other treatments at more economical prices than in large resorts.
