Although most spas in the area are found in hotels, you can still find small but equally satisfying spa services in small establishments all across Tulum.
Tulum spa and wellness centers may not be the reason why visitors flock to this beach haven. However, if you want your vacation in Tulum to be complete, you should not go back to your home country without even trying the local massages, wellness programs, beach-inspired facial treatments, and other services that will truly make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Although most spas in the area are found in beach clubs, you can still find small but equally satisfying spa services in small establishments all across Tulum.
There are actually two ways in which you can enjoy your massage and other Tulum spa services in this Caribbean hideaway. First, you can have your traditional massage in covered wooden benches or rattan beds in front of beach clubs. You can enjoy a calming massage while listening to the gentle sounds of the sea and sipping a margarita or mojito. This type of quick reflexology is ideal in the afternoons, after kite boarding in the morning or wading in the clear Caribbean water for a few hours. If you just want to relax your feet after hours of climbing the Mayan ruins, you can always treat yourself to a foot spa instead of a full body massage.
Another way in which you can enjoy Tulum spa services offered by many hotels and beach clubs is via private rooms that are specifically created for tourists who really want to fully recharge themselves and have a quiet and peaceful massage therapy. Instead of listening to the gentle splash of the waves, you will be treated with soft music and herbal oils so you can achieve tranquility in mind, body, and soul. If the reason for your vacation in Tulum is to get away from your busy and stressful life in the city, then the perfect way to spend your break is to really have several sessions of the signature massage style in Tulum.
Aside from massage therapy, tourists can also avail of other services provided by every Tulum spa and wellness center. The high-end hotels and beach clubs usually have sauna rooms (temazcal) where guests can cleanse their pores and get rid of water retention naturally. Facials and whole body exfoliations using secret Mayan ingredients are also a popular way to help your skin recover from the harshness of sun and other environmental damages. So remember, a Tulum vacation is never complete without a trip to the spa.
