Fodor's Expert Review Wayak Spa
Although not as grandiose as most spas in the Riviera Maya, this small spot (meaning "the dreamer") utilizes natural surroundings to create a unique pampering experience. From the shaman who greets you with a purifying waft of cobal smoke to the treatment rooms oriented toward sun, moon, and stars, the Wayak Spa makes a point of reminding you that you're in the land of the Maya. Opt for massages in jungle palapa huts surrounded by waterfalls (and mosquito curtains) or a purifying steam bath with a heavenly oculus. Client favorites include the honey-citrus scrub and seaweed body wrap. The black lava treatment infuses minerals in a three-step process including a body scrub, hydration, and a heated wrap.
