Maya Spa

Sure, you could book shiatsu, but this spa’s specialty is heavenly Mayan-inspired treatments. Everyone’s visit begins with an outdoor steam-cleansing ritual using resin from the revered copal tree. Inside, nature continues to take center stage: built from native stone, plaster, and wood, the circular space houses six private rooms that either open to the bird-filled jungle or frame it with wall-size windows. Standout options include the hammock massage and the Mayan crepuscular massage, featuring local volcanic clay.
