A really neat and unique way to get away from the hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue for half an hour or so.

Our experience with Fish Spa at Playa del Carmen was fantastic! Kenny educated us on what the "doctor fish" were going to do, chatted with us and took pictures for us. It tickled immensely, but our feet were refreshed and ready to take the sand on. Worth every penny spent! Highly recommend stopping in when you visit the shops at... More

Tons of fun, soothing and just plain entertaining. Worth every pesos. I wish the tank was bigger so I could get my entire body in there. If you are ticklish it may not be for you. Ask the guy for an additional 15 minutes at a reduced rate. It is worth it. Suggestion....grab a beer before you dunk your feet... More

We had seen a fish spa at our resort but were put off by the price. When we saw this place while out shopping and saw the price, we had to give it a try! I am very ticklish and I will admit I didn't think I'd even make it through the initial foot washing. Well, the fish did tickle... More

I visited the fish spa and had my doubts about having any part of my body touched by fish lol but I was talked into it and had an awesome time... Alex and Ivan are great. They made my trip absolutely amazing. Cant wait to go back.

I have gone to Playa del Carmen a couple of times but I've never seen the big fish tank of the store until today. I was a little bit curious and I began asking some questions I had and I was surprised of the extraordinary level of English that the therapist Eduardo had. He was very kind to me and... More

My husband and I did the Fish Spa Therapy. I'm not really convinced that it softened our feet, but it was a fun experience! We had Juan Bernardo Calvan helping us and he was good. He wasn't aggressive and pushy at all, like other people in PDC trying to get your business. Price was 2 for $20 US for 15... More

My husband and I did our very first fish spa therapy recently. Kenny was our attendant and he was very attentive and informative. The experience sounds a little weird but actually was very benign. I would recommend this to anyone!
