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.

The fish spa was on our Mexico bucket list and it did not disappoint. The concept is very fun and it feels like light tickles everywhere, very relaxing. We went to the one at La Isla Shopping Village, and there are about 4 fish spas spread across the mall, and they are owned by the same company. I believe the... More

This was one of the coolest things I've ever done! The fish feel like tiny little vibrations all over your feet. My feet are VERY ticklish, but I still was able to do it! It did tickle, but mostly just felt like vibrations. The staff was very helpful and kind. Definitely recommend.

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.

I had the Wayan Fish spa done in Kukulcan Plaza. It was very relaxing and soothing. I've always wanted to do the Fish spa...so now I can check it off my bucket list!

We walked by the Fish Spa in the Cancun airport and found ourselves intrigued, so we gave it a try! First off they sanitize your feet, and the water was crystal clear so no worries there. It takes a minute to get use to the "odd" nibble of the fish because we are all programmed to jump if something bites... More

We did this at the RIU Palace Peninsula and it was awesome. Plus the price was right - $20 per person for 15 mins in the tank.

I really wanted to try this after seeing it before my trip to cancun. Initially, I was afraid but I tried it. I am extremely ticklish so at first it tickled really bad and then I got used to it. It feels like a numbness or vibration like senstaion in your legs, but it's painless. The end result was incredible.... More
