On the last of a 7 day vacation to Puerto Morelos we decided to get massages. We had rented a home and did not have the access to the spas on the all-inclusive resorts (thank God). Research guided us to try Jungle Spa and "BOY" what a blessing. Jungle is right to start with. The drive out (5 min from... More

Thank you for your review but most of all coming out to our spa with your group and so glad to hear you enjoyed our massage. They are unique and different. As I explain in my intro to all new people, we combine the old Mayan techniques with the new modern techniques and a little heaven and little hell. Really,... More

We found about the Jungle Spa through some friends. They told us that it was a massage unlike anything you would find anywhere in the world. When we got to the spa, (yes it is really in the jungle!), we were greeted by Sandra who told us some of the local history and what the mission of the spa was.... More

We took a taxi from OCT for 20 USD to Jungle Spa, the drive was maybe 15 mins. We gave the taxi a time to return and paid the fare and tipped him once we returned to OCT. We both chose the 1 1/2 hour massage with the 1/2 hour coated in fresh aloe and wrapped in banana leaves. This... More
