These tropical fish from Turkey feed on dead skin cells.You can experience the innovative "Fish Spa Pedicure", exfoliation, biological natural dermabrasion provided by the fish spa, having a great time. Garra Rufa Fish gently suctions dead cells from the outer layer of skin without touching the inner layers. At the same time, they produced micro suction massage which activates blood circulation and facilitates the regeneration of healthy skin. The dead skin is removed and the new layers of skin are more glossy, smooth and healthy.

We walked by the Fish Spa in the Cancun airport and found ourselves intrigued, so we gave it a try! First off they sanitize your feet, and the water was crystal clear so no worries there. It takes a minute to get use to the "odd" nibble of the fish because we are all programmed to jump if something bites... More

We did this at the RIU Palace Peninsula and it was awesome. Plus the price was right - $20 per person for 15 mins in the tank.

It feels like a numbness or vibration like senstaion in your legs, but it's painless. The end result was incredible.... More

Treat your feet, it's awesome. We had long delay at the Cancun Airport due to weather so we treated ourselves to the fish spa. The staff was super nice, the fish tickle a little but the result is such soft feet. I was impressed!

My daughter and I went to the Fish Spa at the Cancun airport. Two people are able to receive a discount - the fee is $30 for two. The cost for one person is $20. We had a great time. At first, it was hard for me to relax due to how much it tickled. You become used to the... More

It was an odd sensation at first putting my feet into the tank of fish. You feel them flutter about as they scavenge your feet for dead skin. There are many locations throughout Cancún to get this done. We did it at the plaza next to CocoBongo at the Wayan store! Such a great experience and your feet are so... More

This was alittle weird. Let fish eat my skin? But it was so cool and they did! Now my feet are so smooth! It tickles at first and then it's like fish kisses all over your feet and legs!
