Health and wellness is the key to a long happy life and it is important to tend to your body and mind while traveling. Try one of these three Central American spas on your next vacation.
Tabacon – Costa Rica
Tabacon is a resort, spa, and hot springs in the middle of a lush rainforest not far from ancient volcanos. The spa uses natural rainforest ingredients in all body wrap and body exfoliation therapy treatments. Massages offered include a full body massage, aromatherapy massage, honey, olive, and orange skin health massage, and Thai massage. Holistic wellness treatments offer bridal packages, men-only treatments, and facials. The Tabacon also has three signature treatments, which include a long stretching session followed by a hot volcanic mud massage that detoxifies, cleanses, and serves as an anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic. Finally, relax in a thermal mineral water shower in the middle of the rainforest.
Victoria House Resort Spa – San Pedro, Belize
The Victoria House is a beachfront Caribbean colonial themed facility featuring four treatment salons and a couples salon. The rooms feature French doors opening up to private courtyards and you may choose between outside on the beach or inside on the pier for your spa sessions. One of their popular treatments is the pressure point scalp and massage with thermal auricular therapy. The Victoria House Signature Treatment consists of cocoa body polish, warm outdoor shower rinse, signature massage with essential oils, hot stones, and heated towels. Victoria offers a wide range of other services such as waxing, tinting, rituals, facials, wellness enhancements, grooming, yoga, and junior spa therapy.
Aqua Wellness Resort – Managua, Nicaragua
The Aqua resort is not a typical spa experience but rather an exclusive wellness retreat. Therapy programs begin with three-day stays and can extend up to eight days. Guests stay in luxury tree house villas with their own private plunge pools in the rainforest canopy and have access to ocean kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling equipment. Aqua focuses on a combination of yoga, meditation, and spa treatments to rejuvenate your body and mind. A typical three-day stay includes Aqua massage, two private yoga sessions, cranial sacral therapy session, and a lesson on medicinal foods. Meals are all prepared with healthy and organic ingredients and you are free to indulge in all the property has to offer during your stay.
