In Playa del Coco, Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa and Playa Ccotal you
will find many spas that perform massages as well as independent workers who do
massages on the beaches. Playa del Coco is the hub for services and
shopping.several of the spas are open only during the high seaso from Nov. thru March and usually hire tempoary help which are usually untrained and not
certified to perform massages.
When in the area look for well established
buisnesses or ask locals for a reference. If the price is lower than most it is
a scam. Many scamsters will use the phrase "We use 100% natural massage oil"
this is only vegatable cooking oil and not massage oil! All beach massages are
illegal but tolerated by local athorities. Stay clear of them.
You can find three good spas on Main Street in Playa Coco. One is one half block before
the beach and 2 others just before the Pacifico Shopping Mall. Always ask to
see their license to know you are getting a professional service and not a back
If you prefer service at your location ask to see if they perform services
outside of the spa. Also ask if they accept credit cards as many do not. A
professional massage usually cost around $40 in the spa.
So take time on your vacation to relax and enjoy a good
massage, facial, manicure, or pedicure
