perfect balance between body and soul
The spa concept ‘salud por agua’ or ‘health through water’ dates back to the Romans and pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas. Today, many of the techniques in modern spas draw from the ancestral treatments and natural ingredients used so long ago.
Hydro therapy, massage, exercise and nutrition are still used to nurture the body, soothe the mind, and invigorate the spirit. Benefits range from relaxation, detoxification, and hydration to naturally bolstering the immune system and purifying the body.
In Cancun there are many spa hotels ideal for vacations built around spa itineraries. While many offer sophisticated facilities dedicated to spa retreats, guests may also enjoy treatments a la carte. For the ultimate transformative experience we encourage you to dedicate at least a full day at one of these luscious spa destinations. Relax by the brilliant Caribbean and treat yourself to the full treatment.
