This is a collective of Mayan women who learned deep tissue massage at their grammas' knees. I've never had a massage like it, and at half the price you get twice the time and expertise compared to a fancy resort massage. The grounds are beautiful, the setting is authentic, and the. People are BEAUTIFUL. We went to Puerto Morelos from... More

I had a completely life changing massage at the Jungle Spa in November during my vacation. One of my friends introduced me, and I will be a regular from here on out. I suffered from nearly constant, debilitating lower back pain/sciatica for years - not to mention whip lash and the fact I sit at a computer for 9 or... More

I have visited Puerto Morelos every year for the past 12 years and I ALWAYS include time to visit the Jungle Spa. This time was exceptional...the Mayan therapists are trained very well and are very intuitive to your needs. Sandra the host, explains her story and makes everyone feel like family. Pricing is very moderate compared to the large fancy... More

My husband and I both benefited from the massages we got at the Jungle Spa. Our first was right after the wonderful Sunday market with its moving closing ceremony for peace. I had little experience with massage before that time, but the gentle, healing massage I received convinced me that I would benefit from returning for another. On the first... More

The spa really is in the jungle. Very rustic location, away from it all, and the massages are done in large, airy palapa-type huts, in a peaceful, quiet and calming environment. The spa is a non-profit enterprise, designed to provide meaningful and decently paid work to Mayan women. I had the hour long full body massage, which was heaven, and... More
