5 Sumptuous Resort Spas for Medical Tourists in Mexico

5 Sumptuous Resort Spas for Medical Tourists in Mexico



As so many Americans and Britons can attest, there’s a whole lot to love about Mexico medical tourism, namely, the incredible savings on both cosmetic and critical procedures, the numerous top-flight hospitals certified by the prestigious Joint Commission International, and the scores of high-quality and oftentimes Western-trained doctors and surgeons.

And it happens to be one of health travel’s best destinations for resort and hotel spas, where you’ll receive treatments that focus on rejuvenation and health-promotion yet are indulgently pampering, too; truly healthcare and holiday wrapped up in one.

With its extensive knowledge of the Mexican health & wellness industry, is happy to recommend 5 top resorts that are situated in exquisite locations and focus on exceptional spa services to deliver a deep sense of relaxation to travelers.

1. Marquis Los Cabos Resort & Spa

The spa in this ultra-luxury property aims to “create harmony for the body, mind, and spirit” which is what all holistic spas do.  The difference is how Marquis Los Cabos achieves it: the immaculate facility features unbelievable ocean-view treatment rooms for your massages, hydrotherapy, and body wraps.

2. Rosewood Mayakoba Resort

Suites at this gorgeous tropical resort in the famous Riviera Maya include rooftop sundecks, garden showers, and private plunge pools.  The revitalizing spa treatments provide a “pure wellness experience” using indigenous herbs in the steam grottos, saunas, skin therapy, and massage techniques.

3. Four Seasons Punta Mita

Casita-style beachfront rooms await guests of this luxury hotel near Puerto Vallarta, as do sensuous facial and body treatments, holistic alternative therapies, and a host of otherworldly massages like hot stone, Mayan mud, reflexology, and 4-hands aromatherapy in the immaculate Apuane “healing waters” Spa.

4. Capella Pedregal Los Cabos

The Luna y Mar Spa at this distinctive beachside oasis promises renewal, inspiration, and an “unparalleled wellness & beauty experience.”  An array of moon-and-sea themed treatments include organic facial exfoliation and facial massage, detoxifying and stress-relieving body scrubs and massages, and revitalizing holistic procedures like acupressure, reflexology, and shiatsu.

5. Westin Resort & Spa Cancun

Everyone knows Cancun is one of the world’s great international vacation destinations, and it’s due in part to its exceptional resort spas.  One of the finest is the Westin’s Heavenly Spa which uplifts guests’ spirits with volcanic-rock heated steams, outdoor massage casitas, and indulgent skin, body and well-being treatments like the famous herbal Mayan Temazcal bath.

Health and wellness travelers have plenty of options, and lots of information to consider before traveling.  Where are the best hospitals for affordable heart bypass?  What are the important questions to ask prior to becoming a plastic surgery tourist?  Which destination will save me the most money on cosmetic dentistry?

And of course, Where are the best places to go for sumptuous health-restoring resort spa treatments?  The answer for many is magnificent Mexico.
