Fish Spa Mexico launched a pioneering treatment in the therapeutic and wellness world, being one of the healthiest trends of the moment. Using authentic Garra Rufa fish, also known as "Doctor Fish". These tropical fish from Turkey feed on dead skin cells.You can experience the innovative "Fish Spa Pedicure", exfoliation, biological natural dermabrasion provided by the fish spa, having a great time. Garra Rufa Fish gently suctions dead cells from the outer layer of skin without touching the inner layers. At the same time, they produced micro suction massage which activates blood circulation and facilitates the regeneration of healthy skin. The dead skin is removed and the new layers of skin are more glossy, smooth and healthy. Feet:Submerged in a pond with a comfortable armchair with approximately 150 fish per person, at least 30 minutes recommended time.

Absolute highlight of my trip to Mexico was going to the Fish Spa at the airport. It was so relaxing and not weird at all. 100% try this if you're waiting for a flight out of Cancun!

It's a unique experience but the fish don't really do much. Your feet would feel the same after soaking in tank of water for 15 minutes with our without the fish. Spend your money on a real pedicure.

The fish do all of the work and the staff pamper you, with no pressure to buy their products. That's a refreshing change!
