Cancun is certainly the most
luxurious destination in the Mexican Caribbean. Offering all of the finer
things in life, the Hotel Zone and downtown areas of Cancun are brimming
with top notch entertainment and relaxation opportunities. With everything
from couture shopping to gourmet dining and exquisite spa treatments, Cancun
is the place to indulge and treat yourself like royalty.
and Resorts on the Beach, Cancun, Mexico
With the splendor of the
Mexican Caribbean in the background, Cancun spas and resorts blend traditional
Mayan techniques with innovative technology. Therapeutic treatments, such
as thalassotherapy - the use of seawater to relax and rejuvenate - and
traditional hot stone massage, offer guests the opportunity to decompress
at the beginning or end of a Cancun vacation. Many spas also utilize a
stunning assortment of sea greens, herbs and minerals indigenous to the
region in their treatments. Furthermore, despite the top-tier quality of
these spas and resorts, spa visits in Cancun are generally much less expensive
than comparable trips to destination spas in the United States.
Cancun also boasts the largest
spa in all of Latin America, the three-level, 35,000 square foot paradise
at JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa. Additionally, the JW Marriott Resort
and Spa was recently rated as a top 5 Latin American spa by Travel and
Leisure Magazine. Offering a full range of Mayan-inspired treatments, incorporating
materials such as crystal, stone, mud, exotic fruit and milk, the JW Marriott
Cancun Resort and Spa is certainly unlike anything you'll experience at
For travelers looking for
an exclusively native spa experience, Temazcal is an indigenous Aztec steam
bath treatment said to renew the body, mind and spirit. Performed on hot
stones with aromatic herbs, the Temazcal treatments are performed in cloth
huts on the beach at sunset. As a traditional form of therapy, Temazcal
could be likened to certain aspects of the Turkish bath, Finnish sauna
or Arabian hammam. Having been practiced for centuries by tribes throughout
North and Latin America, the term "Temazcal" is derived from the Nahuatl
(Aztec) terms, "temaz" (bath) and "calli" (house). Several beach resorts
also offer more traditionally romantic moonlit massages in outdoor cabanas
or secluded terraces, allowing guests to enjoy luxurious relaxation in
a gorgeous environment with spectacular ocean ambience and vistas.
|As you are in Cancun, you
will probably want to indulge in some adventurous Mexican cuisine. Many
internationally-trained chefs employed in Cancun are well-versed in both
local cuisine and cutting edge techniques. Within the Hotel Zone, you will
find the most adventurous dishes, with many chefs offering Mayan flavors
with a unique European flourish. Most restaurants within the Hotel Zone
and downtown Cancun will have menus in English, so there is no need to
worry about a culinary language barrier. There are plenty of adventurous
cafés both downtown and within the Hotel Zone, but fresh steak and
seafood are always available as luxury staples. Take a stroll down the
Avenida Tulum if you are looking for a sidewalk café to enjoy some
sun and people watching.
Furthermore, with over 1,200
restaurants in Cancun, there is certainly a lot to savor.
The shopping options in Cancun
are almost as limitless. With a number of shopping centers containing all
of the world's finest retailers, you will find everything you have seen
in the magazines at prices below similar stores in the U.S. The Plaza Caracol
- the largest of these shopping centers - houses over 200 boutiques and
galleries with everything from unique local arts and crafts to European
couture. After browsing the racks at Ralph Lauren and Gucci, settle down
in one of the complex's many elegant cafes for lunch or a quick snack.
The most luxurious shopping
center in Cancun is probably the 500,000 square-foot Plaza Kukulkán.
In addition to all types of great local products, all the best stores like
Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo and Rolex are located
within this sprawling mall. When you are ready to unwind after an exciting
day of shopping, there are also plenty of great restaurants and bars in
this area of the city.
