Top 5 Spas in Playa Del Carmen

When you want to look and feel your best, there’s nothing better than taking a trip to the spa or having some beauty treatments! Whether it’s a hydrotherapy treatment, a soothing facial, or being on the receiving end of a relaxing massage, Playa del Carmen has a whole host of treatment centers and relaxing spas to enjoy.

Not only that, but Playa is a great place for other types of treatments, with many expats choosing to get their dental work done here as opposed to back home where it can cost way more!

Here are some of our favorite treatment centers and spas Playa del Carmen has to offer!

Hydrotherapy at Okom Spa, The Reef 28

Calle 28 y Avenida 1 

If you’re looking for the best spa in Playa del Carmen 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 on 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 relax.

Combine a day in the hydrotherapy spa with any of Okom Spa’s other treatments for a fabulous pamper-filled day!

Named the Cenote Spa, this beautiful space has one of the most unique jacuzzi pool rooms of any spas in the region, built within a dark circular room, designed like the natural cenotes of the Yucatan.

Mayan Massage at The Bric Spa Boutique Hotel

A favorite among the Playa expat community is Bric Spa. This mid-range Riviera Maya 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 pedicures, 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.

They also offer a range of holistic treatments too, from ear candling, sound baths, reiki, and biomagnetic therapy. You can leave Bric Spa feeling brand new!

Keeping Kids in School

Relaxing and feeling great after a Playa del Carmen Massage or facial 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 their 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.
