Many of the historic haciendas in the Yucatán have been transformed into World Class Wellness Centers.

The traditional “Spa” concept is related to an expensive and exclusive place. But the new concept known as “Day Spa” allows anybody to have a unique experience while visiting the Yucatán. Besides, these specialists can pamper you with one-of- a-kind treatments featuring honey, chocolate, cocoa, cenote water and other Mayan influenced materiales and items.

Not many people are actually aware of the fact that the Yucatán is a major world producer of honey and cocoa, and that it was the Mayas who discovered chocolate. Therefore, these key ingredients are commonly used at local spas for massages, body wraps, scrubs, facials, etc.

Many Yucatecan massage therapists are the descendants of ancient Maya shamans and were raised by these highly spiritual people. They make everyday use of seeds, roots, leaves, trees, flowers, fruits, honey and other items for “limpias” healing techniques and rituals (natural cleansing).

There is currently a wide array of options at different venues throughout the State of Yucatan. From weddings or rituals for couples, to simple relaxing sessions. The art of ancient Maya natural cleansing rituals and healing ceremonies has been taken to the next level at these Maya holistic centers.

A few of these establishments in Yucatán are considered eco spas, which means a type of resort or day spa that operates or was constructed under environmentally friendly principles, that only uses organic, natural, Earth-friendly products.

In Yucatan you may find all kinds of different spas, from small, family operated Mayan style places, to luxurious internationally certified organic and vegan spas, exclusively formulated for the professional salon and spa experience, where only natural and organic skin care products are used.
