Over the last few years, the SPA concept’s popularity has blossomed, and Playa del Carmen is not an exception. An acronym for ‘Salud por agua’, or ‘health by water’, the SPA concept dates back to the Romans and pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas. Many ancestral techniques have returned to favor, including the use of natural ingredients in cosmetics and treatments for body and spirit. There are many SPA oriented vacation plans available, in a variety of formats. Because Hotel La Tortuga is a boutique hotel, we can organize for your day at Zen Eco Spa; you will not need to leave the hotel, just access the Spa directly in your bathrobe. Zen Eco Spa brings the mysticism of ancient Mayan treatments into a modern and comfortable setting. At Hotel La Tortuga we can organize a full or half day in Zen Eco Spa, which you access directly inside our boutique hotel.
