Here are some of our favorite ways to pamper yourself in Playa del Carmen.
Mayan Massage at The Bric Spa
Calle 28 entre Avenida 5-10
A favorite among the Playa expat community is Bric Spa. This mid-range spa may not be as glamorous as the larger branded hotels in the area, but their service and quality of treatments is just as good.
Their mantra is that every product they use for all of their treatments is natural and non-toxic to give your body the love it deserves. From personal experience, I know the organic oils they use smell divine and leave you feeling fully rejuvenated after your treatment.
They offer a range of treatments, from the usual manicures and pedicure, but their specialists when it comes to aromatherapy and massages.
You can also try their Mayan massage, which combines medicinal local herbs which have been known to ease everything from stress to muscular pains, to influenza.

Hydrotherapy at Okom Spa, The Reef 28
Calle 28 y Avenida 1
For the perfect way to unwind, you can’t beat the hydrotherapy circuit at the Okam Spa. Situated in the Reef 28 hotel, it has all the jets, steam, and bubbles you could possibly need.
Start off in the deluxe glass fronted sauna, with views of the entire spa. Lie on the stylish curved sauna beds as you absorb the heat and sweat away impurities.
From the sauna, you can head to the modern spa showers, with 360 jets to cool you off.
There are steam rooms, filled with cleansing steam to unblock pores.
If you’re brave you can take a dip into the icy plunge pool – although it sounds traumatic, it’s proven to release endorphins and soothe your body from muscular aches and pains.
Finally, relax and be massaged by the plethora of bubbly jets and water fountains in the pool area.
Your journey through the hydrotherapy experience is guided by a helpful spa therapist, who can advise you of how to use each station and duration for maximum benefits.
They will also bring you fresh towels and delicious fruit infused water blends to sip on as you spa.
Combine a day in the hydrotherapy spa with any of Okom Spa’s other treatments for a fabulous pamper filled day!
Keeping Kids in School
Relaxing and feeling great in your body is wonderful, but why not consider how you can also feel great through your ethical and charitable contributions too.
Many children in Playa del Carmen struggle to attend school every day. A lot of them cannot complete their education to the end of high school, as unlike in other places, education in this part of the world is not free.
Often the families in the Riviera Maya struggle with the admission fees needed to attend school, along with the added cost of resources, uniforms and other supplies needed to continue an education.
The good news is it costs less than $2 USD per day to keep a student in high school. KKIS is a non-profit charity that works in Playa del Carmen to help to keep students in school.
