Last October (2014) we went to PDC with friends that were experiencing Mexico for the first time. Knowing the guys were going to golf most days, I started looking for interesting (yet safe/comfortable) excursions that myself and girlfriend could do. This was when I found The Jungle Spa on TripAdvisor. After reading through the reviews, I contacted Sandra right away... More

Yes we are in the Jungle but actual only a mile from residential area of colonia. We are so fortunate to have this beautiful space for massage, so peaceful and surpirisingly cool in the summer much cooler than the beach because of the plants and shade of the trees.. we can take the entire family at the same time with...

My daughter and I were privileged to spend a few hours at the Jungle Spa again this year. Sandra was as welcoming as always and as we were with a couple who were first timers, she explained how the Spa began and the history of the community tourism she embraces. We each chose the treatments we preferred and were taken... More

Exactly the sort of enterprise the Riviera Maya needs more of. As well as getting a thorough, personalised massage in tranquil surroundings, knowing the money is being circulated locally should encourage more people to seek out this kind of operation. I really enjoyed myself and was intrigued about the medicinal Mayan techniques, my only regret being that I could stay... More

What a lovely, authentic, and therapeutic Mexican experience. After visiting, my husband and I both unanimously agreed that when visiting this part of Mexico, we would never book a massage at our hotel spa again. When you arrive you walk into a lovely labyrinth of thatch-roofed huts, white stone pathways, and of course tropical greenery all around. The cover of... More

The joy and peacefulness of the Ixchel Jungle Spa is in the loving care that Sandra and the mayan women extend to clients. The CalleDos is not the location of the Ritz, it is not Iberostar - the Ixchell Jungle Spa is located in a secluded haven of gentle breezes and true Mayan energy. Enlightened tourists and regulars know that... More

After doing some research and reading reviews I thought Jungle Spa sounded like a perfect place to take my husband for a massage on our day trip to Puerto Morelos.

We have been going 2-3 times a week for 5 years. It is the best massages we have ever experienced and massages are something We do frequently regardless where we are visiting. Don't confuse the real jungle massage with a recent copycat. All the taxis know where Sandra is located.
