My husband, myself and 2 friends visited the Jungle Spa last week after reading about it here on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. We set out in a cab from our hotel (FYI hotel tries to talk you out of going , most likely because they want you to use their spa). The cab driver knew exactly where we... More

“Family's 1st Massages” I saw Jungle Spa on trip advisor while researching our Yucatan region trip. My 17 year old daughter was very excited, because she is very much in to living holistically. My 22 year old was a bit more skeptical, and I was originally only going to be the driver. It was the first massage for all of... More

My wife, Mary Ellen and I had massages in the jungle on Friday June 13th. She had the Aloe Vera and Banana Leaf Wrap Massage, and I had the Mayan Deep Tissue Massage. Rosaura worked Mary Ellen over for an hour and a half or more, and little Mari aka "Godzilla" beat me up (also for ninety minutes)! Fantastic! Mari... More

Last week, 12 of us visited the "spa" in two groups, many of whom had never had massages and didn't know what to expect. Their massages are not for whiny babies, that is for sure, but they were great!!! We all wish we had scheduled for earlier in the week so we could have returned. One note though, if you... More
