You probably have your perfect spa getaway in mind – a lovely wooden building set among tropical foliage, perhaps open on one side so that you can feel the breeze and hear the swooping calls of unfamiliar birds. Lift your head and there’s a waterfall, or perhaps a perfectly formed bay with just the hint of a few waves. This isn’t a fantasy; it’s what you’ll find at many resorts in Mexico and Central America.

Cancun, Puerto Vallerta, Los Cabos, and the Riviera Maya are just a few of the places in Mexico where you can expect a superlative spa experience. If what you have in mind is a treatment you can’t find anywhere else, go for those that include local ingredients. (How about a full-body scrub with native agave and natural sea salt?) Don’t pass up the chance to try out a tezmacal, a traditional sweat lodge where you can detox in the same way the Mayas did centuries ago.

A few words of advice before you go: do your research ahead of time, as not all spas offer the same level of pampering. Reserve your treatments well ahead, as the most popular ones are often booked solid. If you plan on a lot of massages, consider heading to an all-inclusive resort where treatments are part of the package.
