We arrived early enough to purchase food. The quesadilla and tacos were very tasty. My tamale was not good--very dry, bready and flavorless. The flan, however, was superb! Many of the wares for sale were not unlike those you see offered around Mexico. The sewn items (tablecloths and other hand embroidered items were beautifully made. The show was fun, not... More

Found the jungle spa on-line and communicated with the owner (Sandra) via email prior to arriving in area. My husband and two daughters took a taxi from our hotel on Riviera Cancun to the spa. The driver knew exactly where it was -- luckily because it is in the jungle. Everyone was very nice, the open air rooms were great... More

I visited the spa during a trip with extended family members over the Christmas/New Year Holiday season in 2015-16. I was stressed out and in pain from a herniated disc and sciatica. I asked Sandra what she recommended for me, and she said that a 90 minute Mayan massage would be "both heaven and hell". And she was right: That... More

We have been to Jungle Spa many, many times. If you are staying at a resort, step away for an experience that is a slice of the real world. Go for the best massage ever or visit the Jungle Market on Sunday (in season) or both! This is one of the special places in the world.

Please take the time and effort to experience the best massage you will ever have and the opportunity to learn about community tourism. Book early and if possible attend their Sunday market.

Founded by former American who wanted to start a business to help traditional Mayan families. You will be welcomed by the founder, asked about what you need and then marched to a Mayan woman who has been trained in traditional Mayan massage and other methods as well.

Oh my gosh. Please go and support. Also please tell Sandra hello. Loved her down to earth personality. The women who work there know what they are doing.
