Using authentic Garra Rufa fish, also known as "Doctor Fish". These tropical fish from Turkey feed on dead skin cells.You can experience the innovative "Fish Spa Pedicure", exfoliation, biological natural dermabrasion provided by the fish spa, having a great time. Garra Rufa Fish gently suctions dead cells from the outer layer of skin without touching the inner layers. At the same time, they produced micro suction massage which activates blood circulation and facilitates the regeneration of healthy skin. The dead skin is removed and the new layers of skin are more glossy, smooth and healthy. Feet:Submerged in a pond with a comfortable armchair with approximately 150 fish per person, at least 30 minutes recommended time.Full body:A unique experience, full body in the pond with about 800 fish per person.We have now 2 locations. One in downtown and another one in hotel zone in Fiesta Americana Coral Beach.The one in downtown is open from 4 to 8 pm.every day except Sundays. « less

I've seen fish spas on tv and thought it looked interesting, so, when my friend and I saw one while strolling on 5th Avenue, I was excited to give it a try. The 'treatment' lasted about 15 minutes and I can attest that my feet did feel smoother afterwards. While the fish were at work, Moises gave an awesome massage!... More

Me and my husband went to Play La Isla Shopping Village in Cancun. We noticed that there were many "fish spas". We chose Fish Spa Therapy because of the friendly young man, Orlando! I also noticed that their tanks had many more Garra Rufa fish compared to others. Orlando was extremely nice and helpful. He talked to us during our... More

My wife convinced me that we should try the Fish Spa at the Wayan store inside the shopping mall Plaza Forum by the Sea. Alejandro M. did a fantastic job and explained everything to us. Nothing to be scared of and it felt like little tiny bubbles were tickling your feet. We can't wait to go back and have our... More

My boyfriend and I visited Riviera Maya, Mexico back in April. One of our many adventures was a day trip to Playa del Carmen where we came across the fish spa. From the captivating tanks filled with a dozen or so fish to the crystal-clear waters, the experience was amazing. But it was Carlo, the fish-spa-expert, who really made it... More

I had never seen anything like this so I decided to try and I am very glad I did. The fish ticked as they sucked the dead skin off your feet and the did an overall great job. My daughter loved it to. Also not very expensive. Should give a little discount for two people.

We meant to get fish spa'd our first trip, but just ran out of time. 2nd time to Play del Carmen, we made it to the spa, and it was a great treat.....we had done a lot of running around that day, and our feet were tired. Thank you Veronica for being such a great host. See you again soon
