I think 1hr is ideal, the environment... More

There is no place better to go for a massage than Jungle Spa. We have gone every time we have been in the area for the last three years. Only wish I could get a massage I. The U.S. That came even close to the heavenly massages at Jungle Spa. Thanks again Sandra and the Girls. See you next time.
