Spa-ah-ing in Rocky Point Mexico

April 11, 2013 | Author: | Posted in Beach Vacation

The hottest new Mexican Beach vacation spot is Puerto Penaso, a.k.a. Rocky Point to we Americans. This little slice of heaven is tucked into the curve of land at the very top of the Sea of Cortez. When Arizona and Southern California vacationers discovered it in the early 1990s, it quickly became a popular getaway. While there is plenty of fishing, golf, and scuba diving, one of the best-kept secrets are the full-service, luxurious spas with treatments that cost a fraction of what they would in the U.S.

We used to book our accommodations. Turns out they not only have the best inventory of properties to choose from, they also know the best spa deals! They booked us with expert aestheticians and body workers who offered facials, messages, body wraps, and wellness therapies that left us feeling tranquil and looking lovely. For example, one of the spas offered a facial that began with organic exfoliation that uses fresh fruit pulp to infuse natural fruit acids into the skin and paprika to stimulate circulation and detoxify. These are followed with chilled masques and creams to cool our skin and send us out refreshed and vibrant. All this for only $100 plus tip – loved it! Another one we loved was the Vichy Shower Rain Therapy of cascading water at varying temperatures – it induced complete relaxation. We followed it by 90-minute messages – royalty never had it this good! Packages of all kinds can be customized to anyone’s particular needs. We make a day of it by having lunch after a message or skin treatment then relaxing by the pool.

While the guys are out catching marlin, we girls much prefer a day at any one of the luxurious spas in Rocky point. Ask your representative to recommend one – we know you will love it!
