This was our third trip to Spa Ixtapan and as usual we were the "newbies" because most of the guests have been coming to this place for years...and I mean years (15+). With year around temps in the mid 70's, a daily spa treatment or two depending on the package you choose and delicious means, you'll want to pinch yourself after day one. I love the morning walks. Water aerobics are great. We like to stroll into town for some munchies and visit the local shops. The church and town square are lovely and there is a big market on the weekends. The spa gift store is loaded with beautiful jewelery and we always spends hours in there. Mom and I have a ritual of having our daily spa treatments right before dinner, what could be better than a massage and facial at the end of the day followed by a mango margarita at happy hour? And for those who still have energy at 7:30pm...you can play bingo and win prizes (drinks and more spa treatments) or stay up for the movie in the theater. While this isn't Miraval, it has its very own charm that keeps women (and some men) coming back year after year. If you can, bring friends with you. It's the perfect place to get away and catch up!
