Ixchel Jungle Spa is open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. During winter high season, we are open for limited times after the Sunday Jungle Market.
Come to the Ixchel Jungle Spa and experience something so unique and different that you will be dreaming about it for months after you are back home! Treat yourself to one of the best massages ever. We call it a "GIFT FROM THE MAYAN GODS."
Relax in a jungle garden surrounded by palm trees and native plants, under a thatched roof palapa with a breeze gently blowing, birds singing and smells of copal incense burning. The atmosphere will transport you into the world of Mayan myth and legend.
We want visitors to experience a fabulous, unforgettable Mayan massage for less then half of what they could pay at a 5 star resort. A win, win situation for everyone and where cross culltural friendships are made.
We are waiting for you! TEEXOB (you are me and I am you)
The Mayan women giving the massages are from a culture where giving massages is a way of healing. The women's hands are blessed with the gift from God. They have been given the "DON" or "HEALING HANDS" and they will work magic on your body.
They are from small Mayan villages. When they were born, a mid wife massaged them out of their mother's belly. They were massaged all during infancy and at 7 or 8 years old they were taught to massage their parent's and grandparent's tired bodies when they came home from working in the cornfields.
Now they offer Mayan massage to the tourists. Their massage skills keep improving with frequent workshops from professional and government sponsored classes. They have learned the need to work as a group and in harmony with one another. They can accomplish whatever they want together.
Make an appointment with us and come out with your family and friends for a special day of unforgettable spa treatments. We are prepared to handle group massages, 6 to 8 massages at the same time. If the groups would like to experience a small part of the Jungle Market, that can be arranged.
Tuesday through Saturday, from 10AM to 4PM.
